For the Love Of Aprons

Im linking to Diana's blog today with the Apron post
Because APRONS are SWEET !!!

I discovered  some perfectly wonderful 
 vintage aprons  online

this is my favorite color now !
Yes pretty in Pink, Baby !

These beautiful linen aprons
 brought back fond memories for me
Jen of the  "Country Weekend" blog 
also included a bonus treasure
some field books (love it )
a vintage postcard and a nice Catskills post card
my mum and my aunts, and my Gram in the kitchen 
at our home in Michigan
 long, long ago.....

Oh Yes... Memories are so sweet !
My mum in a pretty plaid apron
and her pearls of course... around 1958

have to show you my dad also wore aprons too !
we are not chauvinistic in this family

My Mum is the third from the left or right
this is what happened after a lot of merriment during Thanksgiving
...and my uncle Dons brandy-old fashion's

Here is my dear aunt Agnes with a lovely apron on

 This Thanksgiving My Mum has the see-through-y, lace apron on.
WOW... I need me one of those sweet aprons too !

here is a sweet yellow floral one !
Mum, is on the telephone
Did you ever have a black wall mount one like this one ?

a pretty blue floral apron
my mom loved blue very much

 So as you can see...
I HAD to click on "add to my shopping cart"   

Thank you to Jen
for these sweet Aprons !
I am so happy to have these aprons
and I can not WAIT
to wear them on Thanksgiving and 
while making all those Holiday  goodies in the kitchen
with the help of my four sons

perhaps a photo or two will be taken
and cherished by them always...

even when I'm with my Mum and Aunts and Gram !
may they all be partying hardy in the 
Joyous, Glorious, Perfectly Wonderous Heavens.

"Look Mum,
 I have my own sweet little aprons now !"

Oh Kat this is the best post ever!!! I always love your family photos, but these are especially wonderful, the way they are all connected by aprons. The warmth and love and fun just jumps off the screen. You've made me very happy and I am glad you like the aprons. Thanks so much for including me in this special post.

These are beautiful aprons - you will look fantastic on Thanksgiving!

I love all of the different surfaces you've been painting on... Your owls on slate are very cool and I love the way your Goodwill pumpkins turned out in the post below!

I share your love of vintage aprons! A few years ago I happened upon about 15 (give or take a few) at the thrift store for... $1 a piece :) Needless to say, I rescued them, and have worn them, used them as part of gift baskets, and even tied them together as a skirt for my daughter's small table. Thank you for sharing your photos & memories!!
