Show me a vintage apron and I'm instantly transported to my grandmother's farm kitchen on a hot summer day.
Eggs to boil.
Bacon to fry.
Bread to knead.
Butter to churn.
Fresh vegetables to clean.
Pies to bake.
My first sewing project in Home Ec was an apron. I still have it. I still wear it. The fabric is thin and worn through in spots. I've patched it more than once.
These sweet aprons are among those I've collected from estate sales, garage sales and thrift stores over the years. They're all handmade--with love, most likely.
I'm working hard to get an Etsy store up and running--hopefully within the next few weeks. You just might see some of these lovely ladies--and others--offered there.
Make it a great day!
