First Guest Post Ever - THE BOLD ABODE

I was thrilled when Gwen from The Bold Abode asked me to guest post on her blog...so I mustered up the courage to ask her if she'd consider being the FIRST GUEST POSTER EVER at Salvaged Whimsy.

Now before you run off and get sucked in by her wonderfully amusing and inspiring blog, stick around here and take a moment to enjoy her post here (did I mention that it's the first time I've had someone guest post here?)

Holla, holla, yall!
I’m Gwen
from
Bold-Abode-Button-rectangle


I’m so excited to be over here at Salvaged Whimsy I can’t stand it… I’m ‘bout ta burst with excitement!

And I’m in LOVE with Erin..and it has Nothing to do with her MAD coffee filter wreath skills…

nope…absolutely nothing…
Well, maybe a just a smidgen...
Anyway, I am so honored to Erin’s first guest post…
She is one BOLD girl for having me over here!!!
Sooo… are yall good gift givers?


I mean…it’s an art, is it not? And somehow I missed that class along the way… Bum-MER...

And when it’s your Mother-in-laws birthday, it’s really nice to have great knowledge in the art of gift giving… But alas… not only do I lack in skills, I totally FORGOT her birthday.

Which is NOT funny.



Even less funny is that it’s the SAME DAY AS MY HUSBANDS!!!!

Bad Daughter-in-law…bad, bad, bad.

So, about three weeks later, I made this…for myself…

Apron (2)

I found this beautiful decoator’s fabric at a thrift store…shining in lustrous brilliance and reaching for me from the back corner of the room…

Apron

It looked a little bare, so I added the little ruffle detail across the bottom.

Apron sash

And I gots all fancy-schmancy and used a decorative stich on the hem and the waitstband…

Apron Waistband

And I got all ready to put this girl ta work…

BUT that little voice in my head, said…{pssst…better to give than to receive…}

What? Go Away Voice…

{PSSST….YO… Go mail that to your sweet MIL. NOW}


And so… and so, I did. I wrapped it all up and sent it on it’s way. And I think she liked it. At least, I do hope she did!

Zach Braff and Natalie Portman in a bath tub

I did… hahaha...

Thanks so much, Erin for having me! You are so sweet, girl!!!

I hope yall will pop over and see my new blog! I just moved to Wordpress and I couldn’t be more excited… and while you are there, I’d love to connect with you… you can find me here...
