Show and Tell Sunday

Vintage Aprons

I like how this apron pocket almost looks like a heart. :)This one provides full coverage!! I love the colors of it (when I was photographing it, I discovered the price tag still on it -- twenty-five cents from a garage sale :) Apron strings.....



Vintage child's apron Pretty blue and pink....
Do you use an apron? I must admit, mine are just for display. My mom wore aprons when I was growing up, but I don't think she kept any of them. I like to picture my mom in the kitchen; such happy memories of her showing her love by cooking for her family.

To see the other vintage aprons from today's Show&Tell Participants, please visit Cindy.

Happy Sunday!!

Very pretty aprons. I'm pretty sure if you scoured through my house...and opened every cabinet and looked in every drawer...you wouldn't be able to find a single apron. I think I'm gonna have to go apron shopping!

What wonderful aprons! The full one reminds me of the ones my Grandmother used to wear. Love the crocheted one too! I do wear an apron every now and then...makes me feel like I can cook...LOL Thanks so much for taking time to play show & tell today. Happy Sunday!

I love aprons. I wear one every time I cook because I always manage to splatter something on myself. I was too late to post but I am loving everyone's apron collections.

Nope, I am too much of a slob to wear one. lol !! I wear my paint clothes around the house as I never know when the urge will hit, so Spaghetti sauce, or paint is welcome on these clothes. lol !! You have a lovely collection. Love the child's apron the best !! :)

I love the faded blue one, it looks like it could tell many stories and share many good recipes. Thanks for sharing your lovely collection.
