Vintage Apron Love....







Here are some of the prettiest aprons that have been freshly laundered and starched by Nan. (thanks Nan!) They are almost too pretty to use and would make romantic displays. I can imagine them framed a bit like Simone at beachvintage has done so effectively with vintage swimsuits and tea towels. Or even sewn together to make a cute little kitchen cafe curtain... I love how you can see the progression of fashion with these aprons, that came from the same home, from the gingham and ric rac of the fifties to the trendy mini variety and stripes of the sixties. All of these are off to the WAC and the Cottage Garden Nursery. They will retail between $15 -$18 dollars each.

  3. aaah I do love old aprons. I have a collection of them myself. Dont know why as I dont wear them and they are shoved in a cupboard but you are right, they do have a charm of their own and you can spot the eras they come from.
