A Wonderful Cath Kidston Apron Giveaway


I love giveaways and thought it might be fun to do one of my own.  I thought it should be uniquely British and what better than a lovely Cath Kidston Apron.  I LOVE her dish towels, oven gloves and aprons and wanted a chance to hand on this gorgeous one.   I don't think giveaways should be too complicated, so all you have to do to enter is;

1.  Leave a comment naming your favorite summer dish


2.  Sign up to become a follower

The giveaway ends Sunday, July 31st and the winner will be announced Monday August 1st.

Good luck and I hope you love the apron as much as I do!

  1. What a beautiful apron. I love the fabric. It reminds me of the long ago fabrics of Laura Ashley. My favorite summer meal is what my mother often fixed: A pot layered with green beans, new potatoes, summer squash and then corn all cooked together and served with cornbread. Sweetened iced tea, of course. I grew up in the south!


  2. Aprons make me so happy. What a fun giveaway. I love all of my aprons and I wear them more or less constantly. :)

    My favorite summer dish is marinated tomatoes, tossed with lots of other vegetables and pasta. I think we've had this almost every week all summer long.

  3. thats a wonderful apron and such a lovely thing to do,, my favorite summer dish is my mums potato salad!

  4. I am happy to say that I am already a big follower....Love your place!
    My favorite summer dish is .......drum roll.....Fish Tacos!
    They are so yummy!

    I am already dreaming about wearing that lovely apron...So very pretty...

    this should be fun...can't wait to see who the blessed person is that gets this giveaway!!

  5. What a gorgeous Apron... I would love to win it! My favorite summer dishes would have to be anything made with mangoes - a mango fool, maybe? Cool, yummy, light & refreshing... :)

    You know I am already a follower! Now I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping I win! Thanks for a great giveaway, Mary! :)

  6. How sweet of you Mary and how generous. I love Kath Kidston anything. Her Lemon and Geranium soap is my favourite soap ever. My favourite summer meal is fried bologna sandwiches, served with buckets of ice cold lemonade, preferably eaten on a veranda overlooking Lake Erie. Unfortunately I am a long way from both those things . . . bologna and Lake Erie! The lemonade I can get! xxoo

  7. What a beautiful apron! I always wear an apron - I have two favorite striped ones. My sister-in-law gave me a frilly one for Christmas, which I just can't bring myself to wear, but your 'give away' looks perfect! I wonder - do most home cooks still wear aprons? I think in years past, they all did.
    Favorite summer dish? My tomato tart.

  8. I am absolutely obsessed with aprons right now. Not sure why...perhaps they are just making them so much cuter than they used to. My favorite summer dish would have to be a grilled chicken spinach salad tossed with strawberries and feta. It's light and fresh and I love it with a glass of white wine. Already signed up as a follower. :)

  9. what a wonderful giveaway and such a beautiful apron. You know I am all over this giveaway! i already follow you and my favorite summer dish is a strawberry pie!

  10. My favorite summer dish...I would have to pick crab salad. I love it made with our wonderful local crab and fresh garden produce. I become a follower the first time I visited your lovely blog. What a beautiful apron! I wear one every day and couldn't get along without it. Where else would I put my cell phone, hankie and garden clippers?

  11. Oh what a darling apron! So lovely of you to offer the perfect foodie giveaway :)

    My favorite summer dish has to be anything with fresh, local peaches: peach pie, peach crisp, peach cobbler!

  12. So far, I've gone ga-ga for Ina Garten's peach and raspberry crisp and her zucchini gratin!

  13. Oh, what a beautiful apron!! The colors are gorgeous- what a fun giveaway!!

    My favorite summer dish would have to be any kind of pie made with fresh summer fruit- peach, cherry, blueberry, blackberry. Yum!

  14. This really is a wonderful giveaway. The apron is lovely and triggers a lot of memories of kitchens and cooks in my past. I think my favorite summer meal is a lobster boil.If that is too pricey I'll settle for shrimp salad on a homemade roll. Have a great day. Blessings...Maryc

  15. That's a lovely apron and wonderful giveaway. :-)

    I love fruits, especially fruit desserts. My pick will be Chilled Mango Pudding, Lemon Cheesecake is on my favourite desserts list, perhaps Pan-scorched corn cob and Colourful Fruit Yoghurt Parfait... :-) ...I know you said name 1 but I do have a few :-D

    Have a lovely weekend! Cheers, Rita

  16. A favorite summer dish of mine was one my mom used to make, Dream Salad. It is a perfect blend of summer fruits and light creamy sweetness.

    The apron you are giving away is beautiful. If I win it though I might not wear it. I have a spot in my kitchen that I hang aprons as pretty as that one...as decoration.
