Darling Sparrow Giveaway

Happy Friday! What a great week it has been here in Vegas. Hope yours has been as well.  Today I have another fun giveaway for you. A new etsy shop, Darling Sparrow, contacted me and asked if they could tell you all about them as well as host a giveaway, so I will turn the floor over to them!  Make sure to come back at noon for your free download of the week!


Hey everyone! We’re A. and B., and we just launched an etsy shop, Darling Sparrow, which sells our one-of-a-kind handmade children’s smock-aprons. (I know what you’re thinking…and, yes, one day we just might start calling them “smoprons.” But that day is not today.) (You’re welcome.)

So. Why do you care? For one, you just never know when a seemingly insignificant bit of trivia might become useful. But mostly because one of you lucky readers gets to win one of these adorable things!! (Commence cyber-cheers and e-confetti. Much easier to clean up.)

Let us tell you about them!

(Tangent note: This enthusiastic, exclamation-pointed monologue makes you jealous of us at parties, doesn’t it? Be honest. You’d kill to have such universally applicable conversation fodder at the ready, wouldn’t you.)

(Follow-up: On an unrelated note, we haven’t been invited to too many parties lately. Hmmm…)



Each vintage inspired smock-apron uniquely and seamlessly weaves the idyllic concept of childhood with real-life needs. (Like Velcro. Hello, invention of awesomeness.) The aprons are both functional and timelessly stylish, with their delightfully fearless mix of prints, patterns, and color within the classic smock shape. Each cheerful design is one-of-a-kind, crafted from a blend of vintage and modern materials.  


We could go on and on (see party reference above), but we’ll just let you come visit the shop at your leisure instead. Let us just tell you, though, that once you have one of these, you’ll never go back – our own daughters have had them for years and use them for everything, from baking to painting to gardening to miscellaneous crafting involving accidentally lots of glue (ahem, 2-year-olds) to eating dinner. Seriously, everything. They have saved many an item of clothing from immediate stainful demise.


They make fabulous gifts or items to have on-hand for cute little visitors, and we sincerely hope you come to love them as much as we do!

I like the grey stripe with blue floral pockets and pink rick-rack and trim. We're expecting baby #2 and I have a strong feeling we're having a girl, if not, I babysit a little girl that would love this!

I think the Chambray yellow dot racer stripe apron is adorable. I can think of a handful of girls(and moms) who would fight over getting this from me. Thanks for the giveaway!
