Shabby Apple, Aprons & Pie

Shabby Apple has a NEW line of aprons called Boysenberry Pie.
each apron comes with a recipe too!

I love them all, but this one is my absolute favorite!
(favorite cake too!)

A crisp bib of carrot and custard-colored cotton with a gathered skirt descending from a contrasting tie-waist and pleated detailing at the bust will be sure to keep your dresses protected from your desserts.

and here is my pie...

This pie is one of my favorites because I used blackberries from my grandparents farm to make it. My cousin Lisa and I would pick all of grandma and grandpa's wild blackberries. We would eat them till our bellies were full. We would spend time running around on the farm during the summers. Blackberries always make me think of summers when I was little.
