A few years back I came across a photo of my Mom when she was young and wearing her apron. It brought back many fond memories just by seeing that apron, and I thought to myself how fun it would be to make fun, retro/vintage-style aprons that a new generation could wear and make fond memories with.
I create new and different aprons continually, with unique fabric combinations, so as to create truly ONE-OF-A-KIND Aprons for you!
Picking out fabric combinations and working on these one-off creations is a great passion of mine, and fills me with great happiness every time someone purchases one to accompany any occasion they may wear it.
MY FAMILY HISTORY OF APRONS:
Do our kids know what an apron is? The principal use of Grandma and Great Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath. It was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons required less material. But along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven; for drying kids' tears; cleaning out dirty ears; for carrying eggs, fussy chickens and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.
When company came, it was an ideal hiding place for shy kids, and in cold weather, Grandma wrapped it around her arms. Those big old aprons wiped many perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove. Those aprons carried vegetables and hulls, fallen apples, dusted furniture quickly and when dinner was ready, Grandma waved her apron to come in from the fields for dinner!
Remember...Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw. They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron! I don't think I ever caught anything from Grandma's apron - but LOVE...
