gretchen & gilley

Tea Towel Apron


This much is sure: Some tea towels are just too cute to use to dry dishes.

Bird House Apron


If fortune brings you a tea towel as cute as this one that I received from my good friend Maren, might I suggest that you find a way to affix it to your body?

An apron is always a good idea.

Oh and orange gingham? That's always a good idea too.

Gretchen Luikenhuis is my paper doll for the month of May. Gretchen likes to read American stories about cowgirls and heros of the Wild West. Her favorite color is periwinkle. Please keep this in mind when you color her clothing. She likes to walk her little dog Gilley down to the corner bakery on Saturday morning for a banana cupcake. Please feel free to print her out any size you like.

My sister has a link to your blog and I love checking in and reading about your life and crafts. I adore the Mother's Day pin and was wondering how you could adapt it for a dad for Father's Day? I'm thinking ahead for a project for the Activity Day girls in my ward. Thanks so much and thanks for sharing!

I woke up this morning thinking about your cute apron. I need one! I am in love with the orange gingham. So how did you make it??? Where did the cute towel come from??? I just love the whole ensemble--the skirt, your tights, and the Dansko's just finish it off perfectly. I am a big fan of Danskos and have two pairs myself, but now I'm thinking I need some brown ones Ü. You can never have too many.
