Each Heavenly Hostess apron is reversible so you can choose which print you want to see more of. They’re both beautiful, so it’s fun to switch it up. Although not included in the giveaway, you can buy a matching kitchen towel, potholder, or headband for most styles – I love matching accessories!

I never thought aprons could be so beautiful! She uses the most gorgeous fabric to make all her beautiful products. I love the idea that you can be beautiful even if you stay at home and work in the kitchen all day. An apron like the ones you find at Heavenly Hostess make me want to hang out in the kitchen more often.

Besides their halter apron, Heavenly Hostess also has cocktail aprons, half cotton aprons, chef aprons, bib aprons, potholders, kitchen towels, and headbands. So many beautiful things!

Heavenly Hostess is very conscious of the little details that make something special. Not only are her aprons made with high quality, beautiful, and thick fabric with precision in their stitching and construction, the packaging is impressive as well. Each apron comes in a fancy little box, just like you see in the movies! The print that you have chosen shows through a little window as the woman’s skirt, and the apron is folded beautifully inside. On the back of the box is Heavenly Hostess’s logo and moto: Serve with Grace, and a scripture from the Bible about using our abilities to bless others.

Heavenly Hostess aprons are a bit pricey, but the quality and care that is taken with each one is absolutely worth ever penny. I haven’t felt so pampered in a long time! I think I’ll wrap this up for myself and open it again on Christmas, just to get to open that beautiful box again. Check out her store and pick out your favorite for Christmas – it will be your best present!

Thanks, Heavenly Hostess!

Those are just the most adorable aprons in the world. Makes me think of my grandmother. I have this little diddy on my blog and had to share it with your readers:

My grandmother’s apron

I don’t think our kids know what an apron is.

The principal use of Grandma’s apron was to protect the dress underneath, but
along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.

It was wonderful for drying children’s tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.

From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and
sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.

When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.

And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.

Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.
Chips and kindling wood were brought nto the kitchen in that apron.

From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.

In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.

When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that ‘old-time apron’ that served so many purposes.

Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool
Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.
They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron. I don’t think I ever caught anything from an Apron.

The fact is, I also used to wear an apron and do many of the same things as my grandma did. If you win this, start some memories for your kids and/or grandkids.

Thanks for the opportunity to try to win one.

This apron is just so pretty. I would love to be the lucky person to win this sweet apron. I would put it on and shock my family with some sweet baking and cooking for the holidays. They would think this is a magicial apron. LOL Thanks so much for a chance at your sweet giveaway.

What a gorgeous apron! I’m just now starting to take an interest in aprons. There is just something so… magical about them! I think that they carry a special power that we don’t know about. When we put it on something comes over us… I’m convinced. They’re magical! Awesome giveaway!

11 Stephanie L December 10, 2008 at 7:15 am

My Mom and Grandmother always wore aprons, when did we get away from that tradition? Aprons just make sense, and if you can wear one as lovely as these, then that is just icing on the cake.
