emmaline apron

I think that the old barter system is a great way to do things - I don't mean talking someone down on their price - I mean a good old swap of goods and/or services! (by the way, isn't wikipedia awesome!? I recently had a great history lesson on Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I, not to mention Henry VIII.)

Meet Rheannan. She just graduated from cosmetology school. (Congrats!) Isn't she cute?

She lives in Arizona, but when she comes home to visit family, she's graciously cut and enhanced my blonde for me.

She didn't want to charge me since she hadn't graduated yet, but she loved my Emmaline Apron pattern and these Ginger Blossom fabrics. (my pictures aren't as good as the ones on the link -sorry, I was in a hurry, and it was getting dark!)

So I paid her in aprons. I hope she likes it (as much as I like my new 'do)!

(I may have gotten carried away with the parenthetical remarks.) (On a completely unrelated note, I reccomend the HBO Elizabeth I over the BBC version. They were actually both very good, with lots of British eye candy.)

Rheannan is cute, and I'm proud of her. She always did look pretty in pink!

so cute!
I still need to get back to you on the blankets. Since I've barely made any decorating progress I still am trying to figure out what I actually want. I'm been thinking about maybe having you do something for our master bedroom first! Still pondering....

Killer aprons! And I'm glad for the Elizabeth I recommendation. I love historical fiction stuff like that. And I do LOVE me some British eye candy!

Amy said...

Yes - she's adorable and the aprons are fantastic. It was a great idea to barter. (You crack me up.)
