A Surprise

Today, I went to the mailbox like every other day...with no particular feeling of anticipation. I grabbed the bundle of envelopes, catalogs, and junk mail that daily graces my mailbox. I carried it into the house and set it on the desk and went about my business. If only I had known what awaited me, I would have torn through the pile and ripped open the plastic covered magazine with great excitement. As it was, I took my time and made my usual piles of papers to recycle vs. papers to keep. At the bottom of the pile I found a magazine, covered in plastic wrap with a plain piece of paper disguising the cover. Upon opening it my heart skipped a beat...it was my much anticipated (but almost forgotten) edition of "Apronology"...a special publication by Somerset Studio. It is this edition that showcases one of my aprons. I am so excited....what a wonderful surprise!

Here is the cover


Here I am.....page 131.
