i had the extreme pleasure of being contacted by the lovely brooke boling, a talented photographer in Nashville, TN, to partake in an “American Honey” wedding shoot she was styling and shooting. i instantly fell in love with the theme and how she described the detail & palette and instantly knew I had to be a part of the shoot.

was the shoot inspired by country music? i  cannot be certain … but am surely a fan of Lady A, nonetheless. when i received the gorgeous images from brooke’s shoot, i was instantly smitten with her craft and attention to detail. i adore the tiny details and the rustic approach she took with the styling and loved seeing some of our aprons and kraft recipe cards scattered amidst the other wonderful components of this shoot.

i do hope you enjoy all of the lovely collection of images that brooke put together below, and you can click over to her blog to see more images from the shoot!

The art of entertaining, made-from-scratch cooking and the passing down of traditions is not a thing of the past after-all.  I am so thrilled to share with you the new IceMilk Aprons classic Children’s Collection of aprons – just in time for the holiday season!

The holidays are a time for giving, sharing, and entertaining when family and friends come together and dust off those family recipes that make the holidays, the holidays. My sister and I were in the kitchen at such a young age with both my mother & grandmother, learning the basics of cooking and baking from scratch. I believe everyone can relate to that.

The concept for a children’s line has always been a part of the plan for us, and we have received a lot of customer feedback of people wanting to have an apron for their little ones to cook in as well. It plays right into the notion of traditions we are hoping to inspire. Children are in the kitchen cooking at an early age and want an apron just like mom to complete the memorable experience.

The Children’s Collection compliments the look of the existing adult line, with the addition of sweet stitch detailing and pockets, perfect for busy little hands! In neutral blends of linen and cotton, the children’s aprons are rooted from classically inspired designs to be passed down for generations. With names like  “cozy cupped cocoa,” “sugar cone scoops,” and “bowls of batter,” each apron was inspired by a favorite childhood memory from my childhood. And, not to worry – stories of each are to come, so stay tuned! They even come packaged in preserves jars as well, just tiny versions of the adult collection. I love the Mother + Daughter gift package for that reason – they are so sweet when paired together, and so special.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the new Children’s Collection and greatly appreciate your support in helping to spread the word.

Growing up a Florida girl (7th generation … did I mention?) you know I adore as much Florida as I can get.  I am so very excited to share this article today from the Tampa Tribune entitled “Retro-style aprons coming to a modern kitchen near you.” Click here to read about how aprons are playing a meaningful role in the kitchen, with families, and on the runway today.

And, of course a very special thank you to the oh-so-fabulous Jeff Houck (Facebook Page / Twitter @JeffHouck) who took the time to sit down with interest in writing this story. Be sure to check out his foodie blog over at the Tribune,  The Stew.

National Tie One On Day™ is today, Wednesday 11/25, Thanksgiving Eve. In its 4th year, National Tie One On Day is an opportunity to put a little “give” back into Thanksgiving.

My dear friend, EllynAnne Geisel, author of The Apron Book, Apronisms & The Kitchen Linens Book, created this event. The event centers around wrapping a baked good in an apron, writing a note of prayer or encouragement, and tying one on…an apron, of course! and delivering the wrapped bundle to someone in need of physical or spiritual sustenance, a bit of recognition or just a kind word.

Visit her website www.apronmemories.com for more information and to enter the goodie bag giveaway! Six winners!!

I hope you’ll join me and participate! It’s such a win-win. As EllynAnne says,”Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.”

IceMilk Aprons is proud to share that we are now in-store at darling Ivy & Twine located in Marietta, Georgia near the historic Marietta Town Square.

We couldn’t be more excited to be in the Atlanta area, and I knew the moment I walked in the door that new store Ivy & Twine was the ideal shop for us to plant our roots. With a wonderful array of antique pieces, fresh potted herbs, unique jewelry pieces and simply fabulous entertaining pieces (my very favorite being burlap pillows and table runners), Terri and Trisha have simply been a joy to work with. You can surely see their passion and creativity shine through in each of their pieces.

The shop is located near the charming Marietta Town Square area, which boasts several restaurants, an old theatre, wonderful museums & antique stores and the Gone with the Wind musuem among many other wonderful treasures that makes for a worthwhile visit. And Ivy & Twine is also located just next door to a wonderful bakery owned by Paula Deen’s cousin!

I do hope you’ll stop in for a visit!

As wedding season gets into full swing, IceMilk Aprons provides a meaningful gift idea for brides-to-be.

Amidst the wedding registries and bridal showers, a monogrammed gift provides the perfect way for new brides to celebrate their new initial. With two custom monogram styles, IceMilk Aprons allows you to mix & match to suit the new brides personal style & taste.

Aside from the monogram detailing, an apron makes an ideal statement gift for new brides, who will be soon settling into a new home, with new kitchen gear, new meals to cook and a whole host of reasons to entertain. She will be sure to get a good deal of use from her lovely new apron gift.

Last but certainly not least, each IceMilk Apron comes with its own “Heirloom Kit” which includes blank recipe cards, Heritage Tag, and Apron story card. Imagine this gift coming from a new mother-in-law, welcoming the new bride the family with a stack of family recipes and a lovely new family name monogrammed apron. What a special heirloom gift to be treasured for years to come.

And of course, IceMilk Aprons gift packages make a lovely gift for bridal parties as brides are racking their brains on what to get their closest friends in thanks for their support & lasting friendship.

As Valentines Day is once again upon us, ensure you are making the holiday celebration a special & meaningful one – despite the cliche heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and red roses.

A wonderful tradition to begin is the celebration of little luxuries, and I find it a particularly wonderful fit for Valentines Day as it is the little things in life that we should be celebrating anyways!

Set a little budget, whether it be $25, $50 or $100 and come up with the most special, meaningful, luxurious little thing you can to give to your sweetheart. Make sure it is something you would NEVER ordinarily spend that kind of money on so it is truly a luxury – even it if your budget is only $10 – imagine how creative you can get! And make sure it revolves around some small little detail in life to ensure it’s as meaningful as it can be!

Whether it’s a chunk of gourmet chocolate, a tiny bottle of fancy perfume, or even an apron, enjoy the tradition of gift giving.


IceMilk Aprons was featured today by a wonderful website Sea and Jae. They are a wonderfully thoughtful company committed to “reinventing the concept of gift giving.”
Well of course I simply love the concept of Sea & Jae just about as much as I do the concept of “heirloom gifts.” They have a wonderful array of gifts that are sure to be thoughtful and meaningful to the receiver. Everything from numbered sparkler birthday candles(my fav) to simple oversized matchbooks to beautiful custom tour maps for your next party or wedding invitation.

Simply a wonderful site that I do hope you’ll visit – especially with the special Valentine’s Day holiday coming up (please … not another box of chocolates). And a very special thank you to Jodi over at Sea and Jae for her kind words and for featuring IceMilk Aprons on their blog post!

We here at IceMilk Aprons are very proud & honored to announce that our gourmet line of heirloom aprons are now on sale in our very first retail store – Someone’s in the Kitchen in Tallahassee, Florida.

This is such special news for me on so many levels, the first being that Someone’s in the Kitchen is a phenomenal kitchen & culinary shoppe that is filled to the brim with wonderful gifts for your foodie friends, for brides-to-be, or any kitchen need. The shop is so charming, located right in Market Square in the Killearn-area of Tallahassee.

Robin and her simply wonderful team of lovely ladies are the best part of visiting the store. In true southern tradition you can’t help but feel a warm & genuine welcome the moment you walk in. And they have set up a lovely displaying of our aprons in the store, with some on wireforms and a stockpile of them hanging from one of the wonderful gourmet food shelf displays.

And while it can’t get much better than having a darling shop like Someone’s in the Kitchen as our first signature store to carry IceMilk Aprons, it actually does! Born and raised a “Tallahassee Lassie” I spent the first 18 years of my life in the wonderful capitol city and I couldn’t be more excited to launch our line in my hometown amongst lifelong friends & family.

Be sure to stop by Someone’s in the Kitchen, say hello, and check out our aprons!
