I thought I'd share some of the neat things I've discovered this week. Well, not that I "discovered" per se, but it's new to me.
As if the logo for the blog header weren't awesome enough, this guy makes flowers, penquins, and even giraffes from pancake batter. Just wait 'till you see the crane! It's a relatively new blog, but Jim's Pancakes is one I'll be keeping an eye on.

According to the Telegraph News of the UK, Doctor Who has caused an upswing in bow tie popularity. Ironically enough, I read not one but two tutorials on making bow ties this week! For those of you that are more old-school, here's a bow tie that you tie (complete with video tutorial on tying it); for the convenience-loving, here's a pre-tied bow tie.

The Monday after Mother's Day is National Wear Your Apron Day. I have several to choose from, 'cuz I'm weird like that, you know. There's an awesome article called Apron Evangelism that renewed my love of aprons several years ago. And just to prove that I'm not as weird as you think (okay, I probably am, but not because of this), check out The Apronista - an entire blog dedicated to aprons!
Don't have one to celebrate? I've got a few to spare, so I'm giving one away! You'll be all set for next year's celebration with your very own vintage apron.
*Mandatory Entry*: Leave a comment telling me why you want an apron. Did your mother or grandmother wear one? Are you a messy cook? Retro cool?
