Apron Giveaway (Closed)

in Giveaways

What’s your thing? You know, that “thing.” That thing you can’t resist buying. And then buying way too much.

I have two. I love paper. Any and all kinds! Pretty stationary, plain ol’ yellow sticky notes, index cards, old-school spiral notebooks, and cute to-do list pads. Even though I have mostly converted lists and such to electronic form, in the end, I still love the feeling of pulling out a stack of of paper, grabbing a pen, and sitting at the table to write. I’m a list maker and there’s no more satisfying feeling than taking that pen and making a very decisive swipe across the page. It’s like tossing your head back and shouting to the world, “DONE! FINISHED! OVER!” Only you don’t risk waking up a cranky toddler.

My other thing? Aprons. I have two drawers in the kitchen stuffed full of aprons. Some plain, some over-the-top girly. Some handmade, some purchased. One of my favorites was a wedding gift that my Aunt Gail sewed, a white and bright green plaid apron with pretty white eyelet trim that reminds me of the curtains that hung in our kitchen window when I was little. I love aprons.

To enter the giveaway for the cute apron up there, simply leave a comment on this post and tell us: What is your thing? Is it aprons? Paper? Or am I the only weirdo?

    My thing SHOULD be aprons – all my clothes have cooking oil stains. But really my thing is yarn. I’m always picking up some for future knitting projects and I’ve turned into a bit of a hoarder. But I’ve convinced myself as long as it’s contained in one cabinet in my home office, I’m Ok.

  • Francesca

    I have a thing for mugs–yes, coffee mugs. I love striped ones, polka dots, and holiday/season inspired mugs. I love paper, too. You should see my desk at work–I operate by making lists on sticky notes.

    I think having a thing for mugs might be weird, so you’re not alone! 🙂

  • For me, it’s cookbooks! Even though we have absolutely nowhere to store more, I keep coming home with them.

  • I follow you on Twitter…

  • I also love paper, you are not alone. I looked forward to back to school supply shopping when I was younger and now love stationary and save all the beautiful wedding invitations I receive.

  • and Facebook!

  • Being on a tight budget restriction has really helped me rid myself of my “things”. It’s been so long that I honestly can’t remember what my “thing” is. Although I’m not spending I have noticed that when I do venture out, I always find myself in the table linens and dishes sections at stores.

  • I follow on Twitter

  • I follow on facebook

  • Anne

    This is a toughie…I feel like I’ve been on a grad student budget forever, which means no splurging on fun things! But way back when, I like to collect candles and books!

  • Stephanie

    my favorite thing? dessert 🙂

  • Annie

    my thing would have to be headbands…. I find these really neat headbands, and I have to buy them! Headbands and necklaces…..the funky necklaces….those are my weakness!

  • I’m addicted to cookbooks. I loooove aprons, though, and might be addicted to those too if not for the look on my husband’s face when I mention getting more (I have four, which he feels is quite enough).

  • I love all sorts of paper, too ~ and pens, pencils, markers, etc … oh, and cookbooks, too!

  • Luxury items from Whole Foods, like fancy chocolate or expensive cereals. I guess there are worse things to not be able to resist buying, but sometimes it’s hard for me to control myself in that store. I follow you on Twitter, by the way.

  • Workout clothes. Ugh, I have way more cute workout clothes than “real” clothes.

  • Books, books, and more books… and stationery, because I love snail mail and sending letters to my friends and family. There’s just something about gettting mail that doesn’t say “Please Pay This Amount.”

  • And I follow you on Facebook!

  • Oh, girl….for me right now, it is clothes. A cute shirt from here, another cute shirt with ruffles from there. Each time I hang the new clothes from the most recent shopping trip, I forcefully tell myself to stop.the.shopping. And yet….*sigh* 😉

  • Oh, and I follow you on Facebook! 🙂

  • Meena


  • Fallen leaves. I have leaves pressed into almost every book I own. Multiple leaves, of every shape size and color. Most of them I know exactly when and where they are from. Is that strange? I adore leaves.

    There are a few things I can’t resist buying. First is scrapbook supplies. I love paper, embellies, and tools! I have a lot that haven’t even been opened (shhhh! don’t tell the hubster!) The second thing I can’t resist buying is pretty dresses for my adorable 3 year old daughter.

  • Kathleen L.

    BTW – and I like you on FB 🙂

  • The first thing would be flip flops- I have SO many and yet, I always seem to think I could use another pair. The second, I simply can not resist buying a children’s book for my son if it is a book I had growing up.

  • Kristi

    I can not resist lipstick. LOVE. I bet I have 200, at least.

  • fenella

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • carolina palmeira

    my thing is dresses, for sure. aprons are dresses accessories for me… so they count as my thing part 2.

    I also follow you on twitter and Facebook

  • My thing is books and more specific is kids books. I have a whole library in my house and every time I see a new one I have to try so hard not to buy it. In my defense I was a teacher and needed the books but now it has just become an obsession.

  • Funny enough, my things are aprons and stationery too! My mom makes gorgeous aprons so she’s made me into a collector and I’ve been obsessed with paper goods since I could write. My husband doesn’t seem to understand why one would need several dozen kinds of notecards and pretty paper.

    Cute apron – thanks for the giveaway!

  • Mellisa W.

    I like aprons, but all my are very functional (read – well used and stained) this would be a welcome addition. Thanks!

  • Melisa

    Kitchen gadgets and cookbooks, then there’s all of the blown glass stuff from an artist back home… I’m running out of space for both!

  • Brandy

    I “like” you on Facebook.

  • For me it’s scrap booking stuff and sewing materials.

  • Hi,
    The apron is so cute! Sweet of you to do a giveaway! I have to say that the thing that I tend to continue to buy the most are cookbooks. I have a big cookbook collection which is housed in a bookcase in my kitchen. I wouldn’t say I am a fantastic cook—I just LOVE reading and looking at beautiful cookbooks… Like you, I do gravitate towards beautiful stationery, etc., too. But, put me in a bookstore and I will end up at the cookbooks! 🙂 Have a great day! XOXO Kim

  • I follow you on twitter

  • That is a pretty apron!

    My thing is chocolate peanut butter ice-cream. Or chocolate ice-cream with peanut butter sauce. I always get too much, but it’s always worth it!

  • My non-food thing is embroidery floss, and my food thing is lemons! Even if I only need 1, I have to buy at least 4. (Just in case I need more. And they’re so pretty! And they smell so good! And you can use them in everything!)

  • Kitchen gadgets! I stop and look at them every time I’m at the store… unfortunately, my budget means I usually walk away empty handed.

  • Laura

    I can’t resist cookbooks!

  • Amy

    Hm… I don’t know if I have “a thing”.. that probably has a lot to do with being a grad student on a super tight budget. If I had money though it would probably be books or kitchen supplies!

  • Amy

    Facebook follower here!

  • I have to say that I love aprons and dishtowels. I am following you now on Twitter & Facebook. This is a great contest.

  • That apron is adorable!!

    I have a thing for office supplies. Always have since I was a child. Who asks for office supplies at the age of 8? I do. Whenever I’m having a bad day I will go into our supply room and work and grab a few new pens and notepads. Instant happy!

  • For me it is definitely dishes!! I love dishes! I have way way way too many dishes. It is a problem, really.

  • Kassie

    I love cards — birthday cards, anniversary cards, note cards, thank you cards … give me a fun little boutique store with cards and I’m in HEAVEN!!!

  • teffy

    my things: Stationary as well. I still send cards to people out of the blue. I know! So 1992. On top of that: PENS! I love pens of every color – but the have to be rollerballs or quills. In the kitchen I have several obsessions – serving plates are one, glass canisters are another. Antique or just plain manual utensils are another. I still grind meat by hand and remember those old style beaters you have to spin yourself? I have 3. hehe (One is for camping, though. You can’t go camping and not have scrambled eggs cooked in a cast iron over a fire. Not in my house, anyway)

    I want to have a thing for aprons, but I don’t even own a single one right now.

  • I’m with you on the stationary. I have boxes of cards, paper and envelopes. I always buy way more than I need.

  • teffy

    Oh and yes, I’ve liked you on facebook!

  • Natalie

    I love cookbooks, shoes and earrings. I also like you on FB.

  • Jamie

    Such a cute apron! My thing is greeting cards… I can’t help but buy them for imaginary future occasions.

  • Tiffany

    My “thing”…. is cupcake liners. Yeah I know, maybe I should get help… but there are so many cute ones!! I have black with white polka dots, white with black polka dots, pink leopard print, zebra.. and sooo many many more. I can’t go in a Michaels without buying more

  • Tiffany

    I liked you on Facebook

  • wellll I’m in grad school and broke so I don’t get to buy anything toooo fun, but I do go crazy buying coffee 🙂

  • Maria S. Rivera

    I like buying yarn and crocheting everything and anything, and baking supplies, pans, cookie cutters, spinkles, decorating tips, etc.!

  • St.Ar

    My thing is towels. Pretty bath towels, beach towels, hand towels, baby towels for my wee one. I go into a store and have to find the coolest/softest towels and I want to buy them. This apron is soooo much fun though – I hope I can win!

  • Rachel

    I’d buy anything for the kitchen if my husband would let me. He doesn’t like walking past kitchen stores, because he knows he’s lost me for an hour 🙂

  • Rachel

    I’m a facebook fan, too.

  • Cupcake liners…I don’t think I will ever use my entire stockpile…and it keeps growing!

  • Leah

    I follow you on Twitter.

    I’m obsessed with collecting kitchen bowls. You just can’t have too many cute ones, right?

  • Swim suits. I probably have a good 20 in my drawer. And every Summer season I think it’s a great idea to buy a few more. I mean I do practically live at the beach during the summer, so I guess I’d rather have a plethora of swimsuits than of clothes. Makes sense, right?

  • I [already] follow you on twitter =)

  • I like you on Facebook!

  • Gwyn M

    My thing is shoes…can’t have enough! Although, when you mentioned paper, I have a big thing for anything Post-it…a BIG thing.

  • Gwyn M

    I also follow you on Facebook 🙂

  • Kimiko

    My favorite thing would have to be shoes. Not just any shoes, but cute pairs of heels that usually are AMAZING but don’t match anything I own, but buy them anyway and have to end up buying a whole new outfit to match the new pair of shoes!
    Maybe I should switch my obsession to something kitchen related. I am definitely lacking in the “kitchen supply” department. I love pretty aprons, but never had a chance to buy one of my own…yet!

  • Miranda

    Multicolored pens. I cannot get enough of them. Ever. I have an entire file sized drawer in my desk devoted to pens. Some would say that’s a sign that I have a problem, but I like to think I’m just thorough.

  • Jane

    New foods! Every time I travel to a new city I visit at least once grocery store and wander the aisles searching for something I haven’t tried before!

  • Julie

    I have 2 also! Office supplies and baking vessels. Don’t let me near sur la table or office depot! Hehe.

  • Julie

    Fan on facebook here!

  • Eva

    Art. I have way more than will ever be able to fit on the walls!

    Cookbooks – and EARINGS.

  • My thing is teacups, cookbooks, and makeup.

  • I follow you on twitter 🙂

  • Madeline

    I have been wanting a new apron so badly!

  • Leigha

    Books, books, and books. All kinds of books. I have a library card, I can check books out. But I much prefer to OWN my books. I even have an iPad and can read them electronically, but I much prefer the feel of the paper and hearing the page turn.

  • Neesha

    While I love aprons and paper, I’d have to say my things would be pens and sticky notes. You can NEVER have too many of either, nor can you ever have too many shapes or colors! Office supplies are sexy, right?

  • danelle manship

    I love aprons…I am a FACS teacher and my kids love when I wear a different apron for every season.

  • Lisa

    My family would say collecting recipes and cookbooks! I love aprons too!

  • April

  • jpetroroy

    Oh, books. I can never resist.

  • Baking Supplies – unusual sprinkles, butterscotch chips, unusual pudding flavors, etc…I tend to hoard them and then they sit around waiting for me to finally let go of and use!

  • Rheanna

    Such a pretty apron!

  • My ‘thing’ is probably sprinkles/baking supplies. In fact, my collection has its own tub in the kitchen. 🙂

  • Jen

    For me, it’s notecards. Thank-you cards, blank cards, just saying Hi cards. I use them all the time so I have them stashed in the car, my purse, and all over the house so that I can sit and write up a little note to someone far away!

  • Ydia

    I have a hard time resisting baby clothes for my toddler daughter and newborn son!! Everything looks so cute, especially from Carters. 😀

    That apron is so cute! I love it~

    My thing is cupcake papers. Even though I already have so many that I could probably bake a million cupcakes, I still buy more. I just can’t help it when they’re so cute and/or pretty!

  • anna

    Funny….I also have a thing for paper. especially post its ? I’m a huge office supply hoarder for some strange reason. Glad to know i’m not alone : )
    I don’t have thing for aprons. my only apron says “Kitchen Bitch” on it and was given to me as a joke…really a joke ??? But that BEAUTIFUL apron on your blog made me realize…i probably need to get a thinf for aprons. That is definately not your grandma’s apron : )

    I guess my thing might be recipes. I’m constantly printing out and pulling out from magainzes and putting in a HUGE stack that i swear i will organize one day and never get around to it. i just love to look at pictures of beautiful food and have the best intentions to become a crazy good chef someday !

  • Christine K.

    Postcards. Wherever I go, I buy a postcard of the place. I have at least one from every place I’ve visited thus far (that’s a lot of postcards). I also love receiving postcards from friends. I would so much rather get a postcard from them than a gift.

  • It has to be cookbooks…I’m such a sucker for them yet 99% of the time I just go with one of the thousands of recipes I have bookmarked online. Still, I see one in a store or online and I just can’t help it – I have to get it!

  • I follow you on Twitter (I actually just got a twitter account and didn’t realize until now that you had one – so glad I saw this!)

  • And I follow you on Facebook! I don’t think I could feel more self-consciously over-zealous right about now…

  • debby


  • Samantha

    Clothes…. You can never have too many clothes. But I also tend to get really involved in a project and obsess over anything related to it. For awhile I was always buying beads, then it was cookbooks, and at one point paper.

    I “liked” you on Facebook

  • Oh my goodness, books. I adore books. 🙂

  • And I like you on facebook!

  • Angie Pasqua

    Cookie cutters. I started my collection when I found the vintage metal set from the 60’s that my mom had at a garage sale. It’s since grown to four ginormous bins with a fifth needing to be purchased any day now! I love being able to do cookies for any occasion.

    Also, now since following you and Annie of Annie’s Eats, it’s cupcake liners, and that’s becoming a whole new bin-requiring obsession. 🙂

  • Angie Pasqua

  • jennie

    I have a weird collection of Starbucks mugs from different cities-all over the world now. So if I’m in any airport, I have to buy the mug for that city-and all my friends know too-hence my Starbucks mug from Madrid!:)

  • Jenni

    I’m pretty good at controlling my shopping impulses, but when I go clothes shopping, I can’t resist dresses, which is silly, because I wear pants more often! Dresses just always fit, you know? Pants are so fickle…

  • My thing is pens. I love pens and I’m always on a mission to find the “perfect” pen, which always changes. 🙂

  • AEC

    Adorable apron!

    I buy lots of cookbooks (and I rarely use them!) I get infatuated by pictures in the cookbooks and don’t realize until I’m home that in order to make the beautiful food I need to have 500 ingredients and 20 hours to make the dish…

  • I love trying new dishes and cuisines so I often buy random ingredients that I know I’ll only use once. Grocery shopping for me is like regular shopping for many women…I just love it!

    Such cute aprons by the way!

  • Kendra S

    Office supplies. I love OfficeMax, Staples, Office Depot, etc.

  • Jamie Trotter

    I am obsessed with erasers. I buy the cute ones in different shapes and I even have scented ones. I have cupcake erasers, cakes, etc. I kinda got obsessed with them since starting college math classes because I constantly went through the erasers on my pencils. But these are too cute to even use hehe. Also anything with a cupcake design on it I have to own. I have so much cupcake stuff it is unreal so I guess that would be another obsession of mine.

  • Jamie Trotter

    I also follow you on facebook!! We just can’t get enough of you in this house!

  • Kristina

    Lists! I love to make lists… what to buy, what to read, what to do, where to go, what to pack, what to cook. I love ’em. The only thing I love better than a list is a schedule with a list included!

  • Crystal

    I love polka dots! regardless of the what the item is and whether or not I need it if it has polka dots on it then I am bringing it home with me! Was brought to my attention the other day that more than 1/2 of my dresses are polka dots..I love polka dot dresses!

  • Claudia

    My thing is bookmarks. I read a lot and can’t resist buying pretty and unique looking bookmarks for my books.

  • Artisanal Pasta! I can’t help buying those expensive imported beautiful different shaped pastas! Whenever I see I new shape I have to buy a box or a bag. It’s taking up far too much room in our pantry.

  • fun food items! we don’t have a trader joe’s or whole foods locally, so you better believe when i go to the big city i go crazy. our pantry is out of control. my husband jokes that in the event of a nuclear meltdown, i could feed the neighborhood (never mind that if that happened, the electricity would probably be out…). 🙂

  • i follow you on twitter (@thepajamachef)

  • facebook fan too!

  • Laura

    Tank tops. I’m obsessed with any cute tank tops. I have enough to not repeat through a summer if I really wished but that doesn’t stop me from buying more every time I see a cute one.

  • Laura

    I also now follow you on facebook

  • Heather A.

    Antique milk glass and nail polish. The oddest thing about the milk glass is that I’m not into antiques of any kind, except milk glass, and I’m not into “country” decorating either! I also totally cannot resist new nail polishes, even if I have similar colors at home already.

  • My “thing” is cute little note cards – granted, I don’t send as many as I’d like to, but there’s something about adorable packs of “Thank You” or “Thinking of You” cards that get to me : )

  • molly

    as for kitchen stuff…platters. i have a million…white, colored, shapes. i love them:)

  • Holly

    You are not alone – I also have soooo many types of pretty paper, notepads, STICKY notepads, monogrammed notepads, etc. to count! The stack on my desk is really a mountain. The apron is so pretty! 🙂

    Me too. On the paper and aprons. And I’ve passed the obsession on to my daughter!

  • I like you on facebook. 🙂

  • And I follow you on twitter!

  • Mine would be paper too. I love pretty paper. I have a huge box of scrapbook paper and never really scrapbook – whoops!

  • I can’t walk into a store without immediately going after the picture frames. I have more frames than I do pictures. It’s kind of an addiction. But I figure if I ever move into my own house, I can just use them all to hang up pictures of all the lovely things that I bake. And maybe I’ll throw in some family pictures too 😉

  • And I follow you on twitter 🙂 I also LOVE all of the things that you make and I spend all of my free time just going through your recipe collections.

  • My favorite things are – cook books, yarn and kitchen gadgets. I love baking cook books the most, but any kind will do. I love love love good quality yarn – I can’t use the yarn I have because I love it too much I can’t bring myself to use it. Can one really have enough kitchen gadgets? I mean, really….

  • Laura

    Well, like others I have a few “things”…..the first might sound weird but it’s butter. I cannot go to the grocery store without buying butter. I buy it in bulk at Costco and still buy it at the store because I’m afraid I’ll run out of butter when I the urge to bake or cook. I also love cookbooks and comfy summer dresses.

    I love paper! I am like you; I buy it in all it’s many and glorious forms. The other thing I purchase… books! My “to read” pile is huge… hmmm, perhaps if I make a list of the books I want to read. 😉

  • Keslie

    I must admit, I have two true obsessions when it comes to retail therapy: seeds and Shakespeare. I cannot resist a well-stocked, spinning seed display. It whispers and squeaks of possibility, and it’s what keeps me coming back for more (much to my husband’s chagrin). My Shakespeare obsession comes to my shelves in the form of vintage books. There’s just something about those worn edges and linen covers that woo me every time…

  • I think my thing is cooking magazines. I love them!

  • lime green things for my kitchen! I have spatulas, a mixer, a tea kettle and pot, bowls, oh the list goes on! I just can’t pass it up!

  • Elizabeth

    I am always buying new kitchen gadgets, especially measuring cups/sppons… they will soon need their own drawer!

  • Kelly

    I have an underwear thing. And a notebook thing.

  • Nitasha

    It is a toss up between shoes and kitchen supplies. If I see a fancy doodad that I currently do not own I HAVE TO BUY IT. Granted most of those doodads are now packed in boxes while waiting for our next move (and they have been in there for almost two years now) and I don’t even remember what I own…doesn’t matter. HomeGoods is my dealer. Just when I think I’ve gone through rehab he calls me back and says “Hey baby I got this super cute mini spatula and since you are my best girl you can get it for less than all my other b*****s” (Obvi I have never had a convo with a dealer hahahaha).

  • Barb H

    My thing – cookbooks.

  • for me its makeup! i love buying lip gloss and eyeliners!

  • Becca

    Cookbooks…even though I have a family of picky eaters I read them like novels. And I love love love this apron!

  • My thing is fabric! I have bolts and bolts of all different weights! I am soon to start my sewing business. I have spoke with several suppliers and they have recommended several hot styles of fabric to make APRONS for resale. I am tired of ruining my clothes in the kitchen, so it is time I start being a DIVA! The apron on the giveaway is such a cute pattern and fabric! Thanks for the entry.

  • Katie

    My thing, weirdly enough, is chapstick. I usually have around 10 different kinds of chapsticks at a time, because I don’t like using the same one over and over. I can’t help it if I like to switch it up!

  • For me, it’s cookbooks. It doesn’t seem to matter that I already have six books on one type of cuisine, I can always talk myself in getting “just one more”!

  • Reagan

    I’m also in love with paper. A long time ago I use to work at a craft store and every paycheck would have a huge portion spent on the new paper that had arrived in the last few weeks. Plus you have to buy 4 of each, of course.
    Also the store Home Goods. It’s an addiction.

  • Reagan

    I liked you on Facebook!

  • April Marie

    Purses.. definitely purses.. When I moved in with my boyfriend he was amazed how many I had… :O)

  • Nicole

    Cupcake supplies. If I made cupcakes every single day, I would have sprinkles and liner to last a very long time.

  • Old school tools…. files, hammers, screwdrivers, pliers, wrenches, and more.
    E.g. do I *NEED* more than 200 files of assorted sizes, shapes and teeth? not really. I use about 10 of them in a given year…. but they’re hard to pass up when found for cheap…. especially those that are less than $1…

  • I seem to collect blue colored pencils for sketches and drawings. There’s just something so much more official about blue sketch.

  • Mia

    Aprons and children’s books…LOVE them!! 🙂

  • My thing would have to be earrings. I love them all but the ones I can’t pass up the most is vintage.

  • Recently I have developed a fetish for canning jars. Specifically the retro blue ones.

  • Aspasia

    I have always loved paper and especially thank you notes and notebooks (that I fill with To Do lists). Recently, I’ve become obsessed with aprons and cute little bowls. I just can’t resist them!

  • Johana

    Outdoor gear! Way more than we ever have time to play with, but hey we are Alaskans and playing outside is kind of our thing. My inside thing is yarn- again, way more than I’ll ever have time or talent to knit up, but I am a huge fan of natural fibers. Looking forward to having those margaritas!

    My “thing” is chocolate. I literally have a stash in a box in my bedroom of all different types of bars…probably a dangerous place to keep in, but those midnight snacks urges you know…

  • Rachel

    Mine is note cards and post cards, anything that is good sent in a letter form. I like your blog.

  • Catherine Creer

    I love retro aprons my Grammie made with embroidery on them. They look sheek with pearls and orthopedic heels-comfy for cooking and elegant in their own way, especially the bone colored heels.

  • Catherine Creer

    If I’m a day late and more than a dollar short I promise to pay more attention tp time zones, day lights saving shifs or move to be a contender. But, what about getting that cute apron pattern for a concellaton prize? It will take a way from cooking ambrosia but it will be worth the wait if people can watch me cook in it AND orthopedic heels!
