YUMMY CUPCAKE APRONS!!!


YUMMY CUPCAKE APRONS!!!, originally uploaded by ModernJune.


How yummy are these? Do you like June's new dress? Very Modern June, don't you think?

Okay, here is a weird story about the word "yummy" and how I started using it...

When Don and I were married, we lived in the DC area where I made my living as a freelance costumer. I worked in all of the DC theaters (Arena Stage, Wolf Trap Opera, National Shakespeare), and I worked on as many movies as I could. In between the big jobs I did alterations and special projects. One of these special projects was for Patch Adams, Doctor and Clown. I added some pockets to one of his Doctor jackets that already had dozens of pockets (some were even waterproof pockets). When I met with him for his fitting, he kept calling everything YUMMY. I thought that was a very silly way of describing a garment, but it stuck! Here I am 13 years later calling my cupcake aprons YUMMY!

Reminiscent of June Cleaver scooping up cones for the boys, but with a modern twist...LOL! Love them! And what a fun story to go along with your name for them.
