Vintage Thingie Thursday











here are 3 of my Apron Collection, too late at night to take pics of all of them so these were the 1st three that came off the hangers for me. The first one with the bubbles is one of my favorites (who am I kidding, they are all my favorites) but I LOVE this ONE, the piping is too cute, and the pockets are piped too the 2nd one is different, the part that goes around your neck is Purple Velvet Ribbon, so soft and squishie, and it has embroidered flowers around the top and the bottom, other than that it is just an old feedsack apron, the 3rd one isn't as old as the other 2 but again another one of my favorites, there are 2 pics of this just because it has pockets and the pockets are so cool, they are piped with some sort of binding, not sure what it is and this one has a front midde and two side pieces, the pockets are on the center front piece and the side pieces are on the other side of the piping for the pockets, another different one. I will do some more on another day, Hope you enjoy these. :) Ok, now that I uploaded them, they are opposite of the number system I used. Bubbles is the last one. :)

You have such a great collection of aprons. My Grandmother-in-law always wore one like the last one. We wouldn't have reconized her with out it.

Lovely aprons! When I was a little girl, nice girls used to wear an apron for school, too. Now I'm wearing one in the kitchen every day.

my grandma always wore an apron - it was rare to see her without one on! Nice collection!

SueLovesCherries said...

Oh, don't we all just love aprons! My grandma, who lived next door, always wore a full apron - never a half. But my mom was the opposite - always a half, never a full! Generations!
