oh my goodness.
oh my so!
you have no idea how excited I am right now.
ever since I picked up the first issue of Mollie Makes magazine, I have been smitten with Dottie Angel.
Dottie Angel is the alter ego of the queen of all thrifty & homemade goodness, Tif Fussel.
after reading the article of her crafty life at Mossy Shed I've been obsessed!
okay. maybe 'obsessed' is too strong of a word, but her blog is my new favorite read.
Dottie Angel makes lots of crocheted goodness, but in my opinion her wrap aprons & messenger bags are the cat's meow! unfortunately at the time her etsy shop was on vacation, so I signed up for the email alert to I'd be notified the second she was back in business.
after waiting all summer her shop finally opened.
but alas, no aprons.
I waited, and waited, and waited, and then I finally gave in and sent her a message.
I wanted to have one before I big move overseas, and our move date is fast approaching. luckily she got back to me quickly & was planning to list a few the following weekend.
happy happy joy joy!
so that saturday afternoon I kept checking her shop to see if they were listed yet.
they soon began to pop up & I waited until I was sure she had finished listing items.
then came the tough decision, which beautiful apron shall I purchase??
there were quite a few options, and each more darling than the next.
however, I finally settled on one I thought was darling & would look great while I housewife it up in the Sufflok countryside after our big move.
& then the happy day arrived (today in fact) when I opened my mailbox & found the wrap waiting for me to open!
oh happy day indeedy!
a beautiful thank you card from Tif & a card advertising her recently published book (something else I will probably be ordering in the coming months ahead.)
& my beautiful apron!
I love love love love love the flower of vintage fabric.
I adore the large pocket.
I find each & every inch of this apron wrap to be simply adorable & it has found a great home where it will be very much loved & appreciated.
p.s. I know I just wrote an entire blog post on an apron, but I don't care. I love it to pieces & am overly filled with joy to have a Dottie Angel apron wrap in my possession.
If you too would like a Dottie Angel apron wrap or perhaps a messenger bag, or really any one of her masterful pieces you should check out her shop on etsy.
