A Flirty Apron for You!

Yesterday I planted my garden. Finally. I planted tomatoes, herbs, squash and cucumbers. I got dirt on my clothes and my hands. There was SUN. Today, I’m giving away an apron in preparation for all the splatters and spills that will come as my garden grows.

Flirty Aprons sent me this adorable cherry blossom apron, and I was instantly in love. In truth, I’ve never owned an apron, and it wasn’t because I didn’t need one. Evidence can be seen in full effect during the Christmas cookie season. I simply didn’t like what was available to me when I would go to purchase one. They all conjured up images of the terrible aprons I wore working in restaurants, which is where I got into the habit of wiping my hands off on my apron. Turns out that doesn’t work so well when you’re constantly grabbing the bottom of your shirt to do the same thing.

Flirty Aprons are anything but boring or drab. They offer a wide selection of trendy and vintage aprons for women, men and kids! I personally have my eye on a matching cherry blossom aprons for my girls, who have been dancing around in mine.

I’m giving away a Flirty Apron of your choice to one of you!

    .-= Cyndi´s last blog ..My dream kitchen =-.

  2. I don’t currently wear an apron and it shows, especially since I’ve started making my own bread. I agree that the ones out there tend to be less than attractive. These are cute though!

  3. Danielle says:

    I wear one once in a blue moon, but I generally end up regretting it the times that I don’t… I’m a little messy ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe if I had one as lovely as that one I would remember to put it on…

  4. Danielle says:

    I already love you on facebook

  5. magi4509 says:

    Those aprons are adorable! I never wear one because I don’t have one cute enough. I did once…but it was ruined and I haven’t found a decent one since. I’ve been wanting to make some for forever…but I have about 20 other sewing projects I should finish first..

  6. Love aprons. I have never owned a cute apron like yours. I like to wear an apron for baking. I have images of my grandmas always wearing an apron from morning to night.
    .-= Helene´s last blog ..Moving – Sold our Home =-.

  7. I made my own apron in jr High out of a big piece of denim. It is less than cute and a far cry from Flirty. My husband will wear it. I wipe my hands on it and if I’m not wearing it, I wipe them on my jeans! oops.

  8. I normally do not wear an apron but yours are really cute & I would love to have one!!

  9. I have a very utilitarian apron that I wear very occasionally, usually only for holiday baking or things like that. I need to wear it more.

  14. I like you on facebook.

  22. I now like you on facebook. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I have an apron but never seem to remember to wear it. It would be great to have another one so I can share the one I have with my daughter when we cook together.

  24. I also like you on facebook.

  25. I have an apron, never think to wear it until after I spill something on my clothes. These aprons are awesome, I think I would find reasons to wear it.

  26. Ok, I just opened a twitter account and spead the news about your giveaway. But have no idea how to put the link on here. To advanced for me, I’m sure I will figure it out in a couple days.

  27. I do have one apron, but it’s ancient and not so cute. I just love these flirty aprons – I’d hate to get one dirty!!

  28. I just liked you on Facebook! I’ll look forward to checking out your recipes there too.

  29. Jessica says:

    Cute aprons are so hot right now! I wear one when baking but it’s not really all that cute. I also have a half apron to carry my gardening tools around in when I’m outside.

  30. Jackie L says:

    I don’t have one, but decided about a month ago to get one !!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Just liked you on facebook!

  32. Love aprons, but never had one. These look great.

  33. caroline says:

    i have owned an apron for about 6 years (before i got married) and i’ve never worn it! But judging by my shirt after making chicken salad yesterday, I should be wearing one!

  34. I love aprons!! They take me back to my childhood when all the women wore them to protect their clothes!

  35. I always have to wear an apron or I would have no clothes I could walk outside the house in! I am a little bit messy in the kitchen ๐Ÿ˜›

    I do not currently wear an apron unless I am working a craft fair and I need one with pockets for the money, but would to have a really cute one to wear!

  37. I like to wear an apron but I usually forget to put one on. One of my favorites isn’t very pretty to look at anymore but it makes me smile to remember the two friends who gave it to me.

  38. So cute! I often wear an apron, although not this cute, especially for rolling out pizza dough or making anything that could spatter (stir fry, pasta sauce).

  39. Cecilia says:

    I always wear an apron when I’m baking. If I’m doing anything involving flour it inevitably ends up all over me, so an apron is really necessary.

  40. Charlotte says:

    You’re alone! I wear an apron.

  41. I don’t own an apron, and it shows! Every time I cook I end up with spills and marks where I’ve wiped my hands on my pants. I would love to own a Flrity!

  42. Michelle S. says:

    I wold LOVE that apron! How cute!! I don’t have one but would like one. I think it would cut down on time I waste getting stains out of my clothing. An apron just seems like one of those “un-need” wants I just don’t want to spend money on.

  43. Teresa C. says:

    My husband wears an apron since he loves to cook, but I am not sure how this would look on him.

  44. hannah C says:

    I love aprons, but the same as you can’t find any I like.

  45. I have learned to always keep an apron hanging from a cabinet knob in my kitchen. I get so spattered full of grease when I cook. I don’t care what my apron looks like….wore enough plain old white ones growing up in my father’s bakery….but I do like the way my clothes look when I wear one.

  46. I have never owned an apron but have been admiring the cute ones I have seen lately. Hooray for stylish aprons that protect my clothes. Love this one!!!!

  47. I should wear an apron. Yours are very cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. I have aprons, but often forget to use them. Maybe because they aren’t as cute as this one.

  49. LOL! it made me laugh when you said you use the bottom of your shirt to wipe your hands, I do the exact same thing! I also can’t find any aprons that intrigue me to buy one. but these are absolutely adorable!

  50. The aprons I wear are from being a preschool teacher, ABC,123 etc

  51. I “like” you on Facebook.

  52. I do wear an apron, but only recently found one I’m okay with.

  53. I “like” you.

  54. jennifer giordano says:

    normally i do not wear an apron because i have yet to find any that look like this one and are fun and fitting

  55. I do not wear an apron out of laziness. If I had it hanging in my kitchen, I might! Out of sight out of mind (it is stashed away with my towels).

  56. I “like” you too.

  57. I have never worn an apron in the kitchen but saw these recently and have wanted one since. I also want one for attaching clothespins while hanging the laundry out to dry.

  58. Heidi W. says:

    I have started wearing one recently in the garden because it has been very wet and muddy!

  59. I have never worn an apron for gardening, but that is a fantastic idea. I rarely wear one for cooking. I really should because I always end up with splatters, but I just don’t have one pretty enough to leave out and remember to use.

  60. I shared this giveaway on facebook. ๐Ÿ™‚

  61. Following you on twitter now too and tweeted this great giveaway. ๐Ÿ˜€

  68. I personally do not wear an aprons, even though my mother has made me some pretty cool ones in the past. However, my daughters (13 & 10) always wear their aprons while they are in the kitchen either whipping up some fabulous dessert or making their signature chicken pot pies! It is truly a treat to have kids that love to experiment in the kitchen and get a sense of real accomplishment when something is made and enjoyed by everyone!

  69. I wear an apron to cook and when I’m washing dishes.

  70. I liked you on Facebook!

  71. I love wearing my apron I just have a hard time remembering to put it on.

  72. Im horrible at remembering to wear an apron, whether it’s cooking or gardening (I don’t have a garden, I have pots on the balcony outside my apartment LoL). Have a terrible habit of wiping hands on clothing (pants mostly) … ugh!! LoL

  73. I “liked” you on Facebook!

  74. Annnnnnnnnnnd I follow you on Twitter and Tweeted the Giveaway

  79. Jessica says:

    I have never had an apron b/c I was never much of a cook. However, I am now taking off & need one!

  81. I don’t wear an apron, but that’s just because I don’t have one. If I had a cute flirty apron I would wear it all the time!!

  82. Tristen says:

    I am apronless as well but I have just started looking for a cute one considering I have ruined numerous clothing articles recently while experimenting in the kitchen.

  83. I do not use an apron at this time, but I would if I had one!

  84. I love wearing aprons! The girlier the better!

  85. I normally do not wear an apron, but I’ve been looking for a cute apron to have on hand on the days I do major baking.

  86. Michele says:

    I wear an apron sometimes, but the one I have is very blah.

  87. I have never worn an apron and have also relied on my shirt unfortunately. If I owned a cute one like these I could definitely see myself being a convert.

  88. I own an apron but it looks more like a man’s apron. I’d love a Flirty Apron!

  89. I do wear an apron because I’m a messy cook, and the one I currently have is looking a LITTLE ragged! ๐Ÿ™‚

  90. I do own an apron…It’s not very cute though. I would love to win a Flirty Apron.

  91. I love aprons! My friends all know that they can get me one for any occasion!

  92. Rose in Ohio (@RoseMillsOhio) says:

    I end up cooking in my work clothes a lot, and that’s when I’m likely to reach for my apron. But I never, ever, EVER sit down at the table to eat without taking it off first. That’s a southern rule y’all.

  93. I have not invested in an apron yet, but will definitely sport this little number if I win the contest ๐Ÿ™‚

  94. I do love love love that the apron is making a come back. I feel very fancy and culinary when wearing an apron. I feel like I have my uniform on for creating something special and fantastic in the kitchen. My children and I started wearing denim aprons from Pampered Chief a few (11 years)ago. We were all excited about the apron and when we cooked together we always got out our aprons. They also came in handy when we were going to eat something messy!!!!!

    A great big thanks in advance should I be the one chosen for the apron. It is really pretty and would dress me up even if I am wearing sweats.

  104. These aprons are too cute! I have a few aprons but I’m always forgetting to put them on LOL!

  105. All three of us who cook wear aprons as long as we remember! I guess we are a little messy…plus it gives us something to wipe our hands on! Cute apron!

  106. I also don’t wear an apron, although I am the sort who should (left-handed and absent-minded). I have a couple of Williams-Sonoma aprons because they look so practical, but they lack panache and panache is what would motivate me to put one on. So they remain on their hooks and give me dark looks as I walk by. The red, white and black apron in the top pic has panache. I think I could rock it.

    drennen-shouldis@att.net says aprons can be an ugly piece of material wrapped around your waist or you can get a cuties one that is adorable on that it is a toss up what you want to get your dirty hands on; I keep a dish towel handy. I wear aprons on special occasions. I also made several for the Church; we were always needing them there for men and women. A apron can also add decor to your kitchen.
    I love the gifts and ideas you offer, but not sure how to do the blog thing. Bless you Donna
