Apron Giveaway (Closed)

by Shawnda on June 3, 2011

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?

For me it’s shoes. I adore shoes, and since I can’t wear much jewelry, they’re my accessory of choice.

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.

Definitely notepads. I have a billion of them all over the place!

18 DebbieS June 3, 2011 at 5:15 am

Office supplies….definitely office supplies. We were trying to clean house and start fresh once and my husband found my stash of many many pens and markers etc. Yeah he told me I was nuts then gave me a kiss and let me keep them :-0

19 Ange June 3, 2011 at 5:16 am

Cupcake liners — I have hundreds.

20 Amanda L June 3, 2011 at 5:16 am

For me is dish towels. I love all colors, patterns, and designs and seasonal. I have two drawers full in the kitchen and can’t seem to get enough of them.

Nail polish! I have to buy a bottle every time I go to Sephora!

30 Melissa T June 3, 2011 at 5:34 am

My thing is books. I’m an avid reader, ever since I was a little girl. I remember the first time I ever read a book on my own. I could spend hours in Border’s or any bookstore and my dream is to have my own library in my home someday!

31 Francesca June 3, 2011 at 5:51 am

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! :)

32 Tracey June 3, 2011 at 5:53 am

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

36 Apron Appeal June 3, 2011 at 6:02 am

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.

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!

40 Stephanie June 3, 2011 at 6:05 am

my favorite thing? dessert :)

41 Annie June 3, 2011 at 6:07 am

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!

42 Kristin June 3, 2011 at 6:17 am

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).

43 Kathy @ The Sugar Queen June 3, 2011 at 6:17 am

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

Shoes and cross stitch patterns. I’m officially banned from both by me.

62 Mikki June 3, 2011 at 6:48 am

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.

65 Krissy @ Shiawase Life June 3, 2011 at 6:57 am

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

66 Kristy June 3, 2011 at 7:00 am

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.”

68 Karla June 3, 2011 at 7:03 am

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* ;)

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.

Cheers,

*Heather*

Liked on FB, too!

75 melissa June 3, 2011 at 7:10 am

That looks more like a gorgeous summer dress than an apron! My thing is MAC make up! Cant resist it! I probably have the make up stash of a professional!

76 Stephanie June 3, 2011 at 7:11 am

My thing is Tote Bags. I can’t resist them. You would think it’d be purses since I use one of those every day, but it’s definitely tote bags.

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.

84 Erika S. June 3, 2011 at 7:18 am

87 PomJob June 3, 2011 at 7:36 am

My thing is old glass. It’s a compulsion – if I visit a thrift store and there’s a cool vase or candy dish or bowl, I NEED to buy it. I have a tiny house that’s now made of glass.

88 Michelle June 3, 2011 at 7:38 am

99 Mimi June 3, 2011 at 7:59 am

BTW – and I like you on FB :-)

101 Tasha June 3, 2011 at 7:59 am

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.

102 Kristi June 3, 2011 at 8:00 am

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

103 fenella June 3, 2011 at 8:09 am

I used to buy a ton of books, but we recently moved to a smaller house so I had to get rid of a ton of my book. I now use the library an only buy a book if I absolutely love it and will read it again.!

In my kitchen, it’s glasses. I love the different shapes and sizes! And in my wardrobe, it’s purses, specifically Coach ones. I have a problem. An expensive one…

Thanks for the great giveaway!

109 carolina palmeira June 3, 2011 at 8:18 am

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

110 Callie June 3, 2011 at 8:26 am

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.

111 Stephanie June 3, 2011 at 8:32 am

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!

112 Mellisa W. June 3, 2011 at 8:33 am

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

I’m not sure why, but I have a thing for dishtowels and tea towels. I just love them. They add such a layer of cuteness to the kitchen but are still so practical.

128 Melisa June 3, 2011 at 8:48 am

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!

129 Kira June 3, 2011 at 8:48 am

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

147 Trish June 3, 2011 at 9:14 am

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!)

148 Jenn June 3, 2011 at 9:15 am

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.

153 Laura June 3, 2011 at 9:33 am

I can’t resist cookbooks!

154 Amy June 3, 2011 at 9:36 am

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!

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!

158 Annie M June 3, 2011 at 9:43 am

167 Sue June 3, 2011 at 9:55 am

My “thing” is ribbon. Spools and spools of ribbon. No idea if I will ever use it all but I just keep buying it!! Thanks for the chance to win.

168 Morgan June 3, 2011 at 9:55 am

Super cute!!! I would love to start an apron collection, I have two currently…one plain, one handmade by my mother (with a matching child’s one). But oh how I have longed for more!

169 Melissa Jackson June 3, 2011 at 9:56 am

171 Chelsea June 3, 2011 at 9:59 am

I love purses!

172 Kassie June 3, 2011 at 10:05 am

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!!!

173 teffy June 3, 2011 at 10:08 am

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.

174 Linda June 3, 2011 at 10:08 am

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

175 teffy June 3, 2011 at 10:09 am

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

176 Ann Grismore June 3, 2011 at 10:12 am

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

185 Tiffany June 3, 2011 at 10:30 am

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

188 Maria S. Rivera June 3, 2011 at 10:33 am

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

189 St.Ar June 3, 2011 at 10:34 am

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!

190 Rachel June 3, 2011 at 10:38 am

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 :)

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

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

194 Chrissy M June 3, 2011 at 10:47 am

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?

199 Kimiko June 3, 2011 at 10:58 am

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!

200 Miranda June 3, 2011 at 11:04 am

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.

201 Jane June 3, 2011 at 11:06 am

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!

202 Julie June 3, 2011 at 11:09 am

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

209 Leigha June 3, 2011 at 11:35 am

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.

210 Neesha June 3, 2011 at 11:35 am

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?

211 danelle manship June 3, 2011 at 11:37 am

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

212 Lisa June 3, 2011 at 11:38 am

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

215 Baking Best June 3, 2011 at 11:54 am

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!

216 Kj Pennell June 3, 2011 at 11:58 am

220 Jen June 3, 2011 at 12:27 pm

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!

221 Ydia June 3, 2011 at 12:37 pm

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!

223 anna June 3, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Books!! I cannot stop buying them. Although paper supplies come in a close second, I think.

224 Staci June 3, 2011 at 12:54 pm

243 tara June 3, 2011 at 2:34 pm

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 !

252 Jess June 3, 2011 at 2:56 pm

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!

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. :)

269 Jenni June 3, 2011 at 4:23 pm

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…

270 Lindsay June 3, 2011 at 4:26 pm

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…

278 Anne June 3, 2011 at 6:32 pm

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!

310 kvossler June 3, 2011 at 8:36 pm

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.

315 Crystal June 3, 2011 at 9:09 pm

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!

lately ive been obsessed with buying different cooking and baking objects. dutch ovens, cast iron pans, different baking sheets.

317 amanda in the mountains June 3, 2011 at 9:42 pm

i have a few. like most girls, i can not resist a good purse. i also like soap. i think i already have enough to last five lifetimes, but it just smells so darn good. then there are greeting cards. i see one and think ‘someday there will be the perfect occasion to give this to someone’ and i buy it. i have at least 50 stockpiled cards.

318 amanda in the mountains June 3, 2011 at 9:43 pm

329 Vivian June 4, 2011 at 12:45 am

I have way too many books that I mean to read but never get around to! And skirts too, I need a new closet!

330 Katherine June 4, 2011 at 4:17 am

335 Shawna June 4, 2011 at 6:32 am

My thing is kitchen gadgets – I have a large drawer full. I don’t always feel so bad spending money on things that in the end my whole family can appreciate.

339 Rebecca H. June 4, 2011 at 7:16 am

I tend to collect weird spices and cooking ingredients! Every time I go to the Asian Market I always end up with a huge number of new ingredients to use – they hardly fit in my pantry anymore!

340 Anna June 4, 2011 at 7:29 am

Notepads. I love to make to do lists so I end up buying a ton of notepads. More than I ‘ll ever need!

341 Sarah Murray June 4, 2011 at 7:40 am

My things is bracelets. I adore them-cheap, not so cheap, chunky, shiny, beaded, you name it! I love them. And cupcakes…I’ve never met a cupcake I didn’t like ;)

342 Carroll June 4, 2011 at 7:42 am

Well, books, but then I am a librarian, and I don’t think you could ever have too many of those :) So nail polish, I have bags and bags with every colour imaginable.

343 Jen M O June 4, 2011 at 8:03 am

My favorite thing is socks. My teenager never wants to match hers and I don’t understand it. She does have some cool stockings that has Elvis on them. The apron is really cute.

344 Jessica June 4, 2011 at 8:30 am

My favorite thing is flip flops…love them!

345 Claudia June 4, 2011 at 8:40 am

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

346 All Seasons Cuisine June 4, 2011 at 9:07 am

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.

347 Sarah K. @ The Pajama Chef June 4, 2011 at 9:34 am

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…). :)

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.

351 Laura June 4, 2011 at 9:56 am

I also now follow you on facebook

352 Heather A. June 4, 2011 at 10:06 am

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.

353 Becky June 4, 2011 at 10:11 am

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 : )

354 molly June 4, 2011 at 10:44 am

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

355 Holly June 4, 2011 at 10:47 am

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! :)

356 Trudi June 4, 2011 at 10:57 am

I would say my “thing” would be cookbooks. I have so many of them and love to sit and look through them. I read them like books.

357 Lauren S June 4, 2011 at 12:26 pm

My thing is dresses, especially in the summer, as soon as it gets warm out I am pretty much only in dresses. Feel so feminine and light!

360 Franikamin June 4, 2011 at 12:57 pm

I have a “thing” for cutting boards. I cannot resist them….

361 michelle vantine June 4, 2011 at 1:07 pm

I love photogrphy. capturing a moment that may otherwise slip through your fingers…or sharing something of your life with others, i can’t imagine living without my camera!

362 Robyn June 4, 2011 at 2:09 pm

I am in love with pens … it is a slight obsession.

363 Brenda June 4, 2011 at 2:31 pm

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

364 Lauren June 4, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Aprons are not my thing, but I wish they were. I’ve been searching for the perfect apron for a long time now, and I always seem to pass them by in stores in hopes of seeing one I like better. My thing–books! I can’t get enough of them.

365 Lauren June 4, 2011 at 2:36 pm

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

368 Jess G. June 4, 2011 at 3:22 pm

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 ;)

369 Jess G. June 4, 2011 at 3:23 pm

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.

373 Brianna June 4, 2011 at 4:08 pm

My thing is food magazines. I can never bring myself to throw them away, especially Gourmet, since it’s no longer running. I love how pretty they look all lined up in the bookshelf. I know I’ll never get to all the recipes that they contain, but I love them anyway.

374 Pam June 4, 2011 at 4:24 pm

For me it’s definitely baking supplies! Pans, cutters, icing tips, carriers, etc….

oh and buying “UsWeekly” magazine lol I know it’s fluff & barely true but I always want to flip through it haha

375 Rebecca June 4, 2011 at 4:27 pm

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….

378 debi June 4, 2011 at 6:25 pm

My kryptonite is dishes…baking dishes, dinner dishes, baking dishes…you name it and I could serve the royal family and their retinue!

Thanks for a fun giveaway!

399 Laura June 4, 2011 at 9:41 pm

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.

400 Nina June 4, 2011 at 10:04 pm

Make up!! I can’t pass up the gift with purchase.

401 Kathy June 4, 2011 at 10:11 pm

406 Kat June 4, 2011 at 10:23 pm

Pens are my weakness. Stationary stores, especially the ones in Taiwan, are my loves.

407 Lisa June 4, 2011 at 10:30 pm

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. ;-)

408 Keslie June 4, 2011 at 10:44 pm

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…

409 Keslie June 4, 2011 at 10:46 pm

Facebook love comin’ at ya all the way from Oregon!

410 Amy Martindale June 4, 2011 at 10:57 pm

413 Stacey June 5, 2011 at 3:40 am

My thing is hair accessories and unusual jewellery. Any time I see something sparkly or unusual – I have to get it. Hubby goes mad but I tell him it’s a womans right to buy sparkly and pretty things :)

414 JoAnn June 5, 2011 at 5:18 am

416 Beth June 5, 2011 at 5:43 am

I have a thing for old school mixing bowls and serving pieces – like the ones my grandmother and mom have. I like to find them slightly worn so that I don’t feel guilty about using them!

Cute apron!

423 Heidi June 5, 2011 at 9:55 am

As a teacher, I have an addiction to teacher supplies. This ranges from pens/pencils (I have a plethora of those) or going through the teacher catalog and designing my dream classroom.

424 Jean June 5, 2011 at 10:01 am

Lately, I’ve been buying lots of eye cream — current favorite is Aveeno. Normally though two of my more typical indulgences are books and fabric. Now if I could just buy time to read and sew!

434 Debbie M. June 5, 2011 at 2:39 pm

My “thing” is books and magazines. I’m big into going to the library book sale and buying books for 25 cents and I can’t pass up a bargain price food magazine at Costco.

447 Jaida - Sweet Beginnings June 5, 2011 at 7:43 pm

Where to begin…? Shoes, Purses, Note Pads (I, too, am a list maker!!), Cookbooks, Kitchen Appliances/Gadgets… It’s amazing that I am able to keep my house neat and organized (most of the time, anyway!)

Workout clothes – love new running shorts. They make me feel zippy.

475 Melissa June 6, 2011 at 8:49 am

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

476 Maressa June 6, 2011 at 9:07 am

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!

477 Elizabeth June 6, 2011 at 9:37 am

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

478 Kelly June 6, 2011 at 9:49 am

I have an underwear thing. And a notebook thing.

479 Nitasha June 6, 2011 at 9:53 am

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).

480 Barb H June 6, 2011 at 10:36 am

My thing – cookbooks.

481 Adilah June 6, 2011 at 10:54 am

482 Becca June 6, 2011 at 11:04 am

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

483 Kelly aka HonestNiceWoman June 6, 2011 at 11:05 am

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.

487 Erin @ The Houndstooth Apron June 6, 2011 at 11:41 am

I have a lot of ‘things’. Books are my biggest one I guess, followed by shoes. My blog is named for my favorite kitchen accessory – my houndstooth apron!

I try to watch what I spend, but when I have the opportunity, my “thing” is a home decor items. I used to love stopping at World Market or Home Goods on my way home from work just to browse!

494 Jennifer W June 6, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I love paper as well, so no, you’re NOT a wierdo! ha! I like to collect souvenier items from trips i take – usually a postcard or a magnet, but occasionally a t-shirt or coffee mug. :-)

495 Katie June 6, 2011 at 12:48 pm

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!

496 Samantha June 6, 2011 at 1:56 pm

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”!

497 wendy June 6, 2011 at 1:59 pm

I am new to your blog and really love it.

501 Melanie June 6, 2011 at 3:38 pm

This is gonna sound weird but I love to buy condiments (salad dressings, sauces, etc.) My fridge is full of them! :)

502 Eva June 6, 2011 at 3:40 pm

I hoard books. And write daunting to-do lists. I can’t help myself.

503 Donna June 6, 2011 at 3:59 pm

Recipes. I have twenty something blogs I have created for each individual type of food. Meat, pasta, healthy items,etc. I created a blog for my daughter with beginner cooking recipes..aahhhh recipes! Lovely apron, and thank you for the chance to have it.

504 Reagan June 6, 2011 at 4:25 pm

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.

511 seedless grape June 6, 2011 at 6:21 pm

It used to be yarn, until I made a New Year’s resolution not to buy any more yarn this year. These days it’s bento boxes–I can’t stop collecting them!

512 thecounselormom June 6, 2011 at 6:27 pm

I love paper too! And pads of paper to make lists and the ones that are personalized are great!! I also love aprons, and if I had one like this one, i would wear it every day!

527 April Marie June 7, 2011 at 4:50 am

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

528 Nicole June 7, 2011 at 6:49 am

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

529 Laima June 7, 2011 at 7:10 am

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…

530 Michaela June 7, 2011 at 7:23 am

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

531 Mia June 7, 2011 at 7:48 am

Aprons and children’s books…LOVE them!! :)

532 KatieEE June 7, 2011 at 8:33 am

This apron is SO sassy, I love it! I can’t resist a beautiful, new cookie cutter. My latest purchase was a crown that I have too many ideas for…

533 Pam R June 7, 2011 at 8:45 am

I absolutely love nail polish! I have a ridiculous amount of colours but can’t help but keep buying more! I do love aprons too and that one is absolutely adorable!

534 Nancy June 7, 2011 at 9:16 am

My weakness is cookbooks……I collect old,new and in-between.

535 Anika June 7, 2011 at 9:23 am

My things is definitely books. At times I can read a book a day. Since it’s the weather’s nice now, there’s nothing better than reading a book in the park. That apron is super cute btw!

536 Rachel Marion June 7, 2011 at 11:39 am

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

537 Gina June 7, 2011 at 1:03 pm

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

538 Aspasia June 7, 2011 at 1:32 pm

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!

539 Taylor June 7, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Cups! (most specifically water bottles and coffee cups) and Pens! I obsess not over how “pretty” they are but how well they write!!

Not kitchen related, but doormats. A new one every season, right?

561 Johana June 7, 2011 at 7:07 pm

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!
p.s. please send limes with apron

562 Meagan June 7, 2011 at 7:13 pm

568 Rita Scott June 7, 2011 at 9:24 pm

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…

573 Rachel June 8, 2011 at 1:32 am

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

574 Catherine Creer June 8, 2011 at 1:48 am

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.

575 Catherine Creer June 8, 2011 at 1:55 am

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!
