The Belated Birthday Apron

"I can't believe it took my mom 4 months to make this apron."

"I just KNOW anything I make wearing this apron will be de-lic-ious."

"Cookbook-check, vegetables-check, looking the part-check."Now, if only I could create meals like the ones featured on Once in a Blue Moon Iris"

Ever since my daughter visited Cambridge, England last summer we have embraced our English heritage. Her apron is inspired by English style found in our favorite UK magazine Country Living. After a little digging, I discovered that my ancestors on my mother's side were from London. They came to the United States in the mid 1600s and settled in Boston, MA. On an exciting note, my great great + grandfather owned a prominent rope making business. We think he may have taken part in the "Bloody Massacre" which helped launch the Revolutionary War. My daughter Jessie (featured in that lovely apron) will be visiting Boston next weekend in hopes of reliving our family's exciting past.

    Interesting about your great, great grandfather. Does that make you and your daughter eligible to join the Daughters of the American Revolution?
