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!

A special thanks to Atlanta blogger, Maryan for all of her support of IceMilk Aprons.

Along with your list of new years resolutions, be sure to bring this one to the table.

As more & more people begin to save money in ’09, I think we’ll find more folks grocery shopping at Publix, cooking homemade meals and all sitting down together for a lovely family meal – how wonderful!

Enjoy this classic little photo from the new Life database collection of a family enjoying a beautiful dinner together.

This year – be sure to bring back this joyful tradition each and every day!

I have always loved the simplicity and amber sheen of a fresh jar of honey – but only recently have I really come to enjoy the taste. And now it seems to be everywhere!

With its beauty honey is a sure bet for entertaining. I think most people (at least in the South) are familiar with the wonderful Savannah Bee Company line. Simply beautiful packaging, so distinctive & elegant, but still with a raw, rustic edge. Pretty much anything from the line makes a beautiful hostess gift when invited somewhere (always bring something!)

And I couldn’t help but share this amazing recipe from another wonderful blog I subscribe to Sweet Paul. His recipe for brie, fresh fig & honey is simply the most beautiful thing to display – and I actually made it over the holidays so I can attest that it is just delicious! And the photography on his blog is just beautifully done.

Honey, I do hope you enjoy!

I was reminded of a classic point in entertaining etiquette this weekend as I wrapped & wrapped & wrapped presents under my Christmas tree to help get ready for the holidays.

Gift wrapping IS an art – and there are many traditions for holiday gift wrapping that I’ve seen folks try. For example, my grandmother would always carefully unwrap her gifts each year and then keep the paper, boxes & ribbons to be used for years to come. Mom used to wrap each persons gifts in a different color wrapping paper so you could easily tell who’s gift was who’s without the need for tags (that always fall off anyways!)

I have my own little wrapping tradition – wrapping everything in kraft paper, kraft bags, and twine. I love the simplicity of the look and the basic-ness of the elements. And I must say, it looks simply fabulous under the Frasier fir & cream Christmas tree skirt this year!

One year I added some white paper doilies, the next some fuzzy cream yarn, and this year have added tiny gold foil labels just to switch it up a bit. But it’s a signature wrapping I’ve become known for – even beyond the holidays – into birthday & wedding wrappings. And one I’ve continued even in the packaging of my IceMilk Aprons wrapping.

What is your art of gift wrapping?
