Did you guys know that I have super talented friends?
They’re also really entrepreneurial.
The blonde one, Katy, and her business partner Kate, own a wildly successful Floral business in Dallas called Stems of Dallas that creates the most beautiful, lovely, feminine, special, creative, amazing floral arrangements. If you live in Dallas and need flowers, you’re silly if you go anywhere else. For real.
Also, check out their blog. Sometimes I just go there when I need to look at something pretty.
They were mentioned in the Dallas Morning News, which I may or may not have on my refrigerator. It’s creepy, but I’m cool with it.
Did I mention they’re rock stars?
Did I need to?
Which brings me to my next question:
Do you love free stuff?
Great. Let’s move on.
My other super talented, entrepreneurial friend Amy recently started making aprons out of vintage materials. Mrs. Cochran Designs takes vintage tablecloths, pillows, napkins–anything really, and sews them into adorable aprons. She just started a couple of weeks ago, and she already has an Etsy store and has orders just pouring in!
And, because she’s nice and she likes me, she sent me one!
How cute is that?
Did you know, too, that cats with wonky ears love aprons? It’s definitely the strings.
That’s not all… check it:
Yep! That’s my “logo,” if you will. She hand stitched that. Like, by hand. She’s a rock star too.
Oh. I’m sorry. Did you want one?
Maybe this one? For free?

The contest will run until Sunday night at midnight, and the winner will be announced Monday morning!
***WE HAVE A WINNER!***
First and foremost, you all are awesome. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I used something very official called a random number generator to pick the winner because honestly it would have been impossible to pick myself, even if I was picking blindly out of a hat.
That said, we have a winner!
Simona, lucky number 14, who said “My ideal meal varies by the day, but it would most definitely include something chocolate for dessert!” is our lucky winner!
Simona, I completely agree. Any meal is ideal when chocolate is involved.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to collect your super stylin’ new apron!
Thanks everyone for entering… and stay tuned! This was so much fun, there might just be more giveaways in the future!
