Aprons by Asher

Same as above...Yes, they're reversible!


Introducing Asher…

A new line of sweetly sewn aprons by Fort Worth natives Ashley and Erin (from which the name Asher is derived).

These sisters got tired of only seeing cute but impractical aprons.  These reversible, two in one aprons are oh so cute!…and totally practical for ladies who love to make a tasty home cooked meal!

Stop by Prim & Proper to check them out…or call for more details 817.377.3558!



Things I Love: The Sartorialist

22 Feb

I have debated for the past few weeks with how much of ME should be in this blog?…or Should I have a separate blog?

I haven’t decided yet…

So, for now…since my own journey in life isn’t entirely separate from Prim & Proper I have decided to share the little things I love…here.  In one place.

The Sartorialist

“My lack of knowledge in the beginning really helped, and really just made me refine what little I knew to make it work. If you ask any other person that does a creative thing, they probably went to school and learn all these different things and then as they get better it just narrows and narrows.” Scott Schumann (The Sartorialist)

I’m still narrowing things down. ~Melanie

Sweet Somethings #2

5 Feb

Private Chef…Owner of Linguine and Dirty Martinis…Fort Worth Foodie Writer…and Blogger…Callie Salls is going to be a part of Love Notes & Sweet Somethings!!!! Yay!

I follow her twitter and love her blog full of fun recipes.

“Being stranded in a one-bedroom apartment due to inclement weather for 24+ hours is only manageable if red wine and chocolate are involved.” ~Callie Salls

(The Almond & Cherry Bites pictured above was a great suggestion/recipe for our well below freezing nights…and being confined indoors all day.)

All good chefs are fascinating…For me personally, it boils down the ability to take creativity to a whole new level by using many senses…if not all! I mean if you really think about it…in most jobs things just have to look good or sound interesting…we spend so much time and money just making things look attractive to someone else.  But with food…at the very least it has to look good, smell enticing and taste great.  I think that’s quite the challenge to take on…everyday.  Amazing.  So thumbs up to our local lady…Callie.

Come check out some of her delectable delights at Love Notes & Sweet Somethings! What exactly? It’s a surprise for now…But stay tuned.  Soooo very excited!
