Have you noticed anything new around these parts? *wink, wink* Seeing that it was a new year and that I have been writing this lovely little blog of mine for just over a year(!) I thought it was time for a bit of freshening up. I teamed up with a very talented artist and designer, Michelle Vinson of Peridot Designs, Inc. and the blog Sweet Relish.She is a long time friend and I am over the moon on the beautiful things she has done with My Retro Kitchen! I feel like I have a pretty new dress on and i am just dying to go out on the town to show it off. Thank you so much Michelle for your beautiful work, I am in love! Head on over to her blog for a little inspiration on design, sweet musings of her family and other fun stuff. It's an excellent add to your reader.
You can find Michelle's button on my sidebar for all your future design needs!
In honor of my fabulous new look I have decided to give back to all of you and host my very first Giveaway! Each of You drive me to push myself, make me want to keep up with recipes and help me to grow in my creativity. I am having so much fun, and what started out as just a little hobby has turned into so much more. I want to say thank you by having a little fun! You have between now and March 10th (exactly one week) to get your entires in to win a fun gift from me to you.
The second item is a fun and very "retro" inspired apron. One of my favorite accessories in the kitchen is my collection of aprons. Not only will you look adorable while cooking, perfect when you have a house full of guests and last minute, finishing touches to do for dinner, but you don't want to ruin that pretty new dress! Now guys out there, girls love aprons, so if you enter my giveaway and happen to win, please pass this lovely onto a special lovely in your life. She will adore it!
Now here is the nitty gritty. If you want to win these two items I have a few things you need to do first to qualify.
