Christmas In August!


Don't you find that when something
wonderful and unexpected
comes in the mail 
 it feels like 
Christmas?


Well on Monday a parcel arrived.
I had been told something was coming
but I didn't know what it was.


Look at this SWEET wrapped bundle!

Notice the bee's?

Look at that bow with the buttons
and the striped string...
isn't that something!


This parcel was sent to me by my 
wonderful blogging friend
Beverly 
who's blog is called

Bev not only lives on a BEE-UTIFUL
farm but she lives in a new log house
AND also has a 200+ year old log house
on their beautiful farm in 
central Pennsylvania.

They have horses, goats, cats, dogs,
mini horses, turkeys, chickens
and I can't remember what else.
You should see her veggie garden!

As if she isn't busy enough 
she also has another blog
Where she makes the
sweetest aprons!

This is only the tip of the iceberg!

I hope you'll pop on over to Bev's...
you won't be disappointed
I promise.
:) 


Here's a closer look at the wrapping paper.
Perfect considering this is coming 
from the
Bee Haven Maven!

See the little bee's  
Bev stamped on the outside
of the package :)


THIS is what was in the package!

Yes Bev made this apron JUST for me.
Bev has an old apron that is
about 50 years old that I really liked
so she drew up a pattern from it
and made this.

For me!


Isn't this a beauty!




Look at the back...
it's PERFECT!

As most of you know 
it get's HOT here in Kansas
and when I'm working outside
in an apron that ties snug around my
waist it get uncomfortable.

This apron is perfect because 
I don't have to tie it tight 
because it goes over
my head
and the extra piece
keeps the ties
in place!


And here it is being
put to work.


THANK YOU 
BEV!

Maura :)

What a wonderful gift! The wrapping was oh so sweet, but that apron is just the *'bees knees', and it looks great on you.

Enjoy and thanks for the links to Bev's blogs.

*"The Bee's Knees" is a term indicating excellence - the highest quality.
Because bees carry pollen back to the hive in sacs on their legs. The allusion is to the concentrated goodness to be found around the bee's knee.

Found the above definition here:

What a great gift and what a lovely apron. Bev is quite the seamstress. She is a very busy woman, I don't know how she does it.
