Aprons from the past

Most of you know my love of antique/junk stores. Just recently I have discovered these adorable vintage handmade aprons. Most all the antique stores have them. I guess I just never paid attention to them before. In the last few weeks I have picked up these 3. Sometimes they are pricey but I got these for less than $5 each. And I am actually wearing and using them. I love to wipe my wet hands on them as I am working in the kitchen. When I put one on I always wonder... "Who made this apron, was it a gift for someone, what did they like to cook?" That's one of the neat things about antique stores... the stuff you find has a history but is a mystery at the same time.

I haven't found any of these yet at my Dad's, but I'll post them if I do! Yours are nice.

My mom always wore an apron when she was in the kitchen, and I never have. Yours remind me of hers.

My mom always wore an apron too--and her name is Ruth. :)

She would always forget to take it off when she left the house- I remember the time she took her coat off at church- and there was the apron tied around her waste...we all started to giggle.

My mom wore an apron every day when she would cook dinner, and my daughter loves them too. We were in a kitchen/ cooking type store today and Meg was admiring the display of aprons.
