Do you like aprons?

My friend walked into my office last week and threw that silly question at me. You know my answer- OF COURSE. Her mother-in-law had recently passed away and while sorting through her treasures my friend happened upon a stack of old aprons. No one in the family wished to take them. So, during lunch one day last week we took a drive and I happily adopted these beauties into my family.

Yesterday I put them all out on the line- to share with all of you.


If it weren't for the threat of the weather and too much sunshine I think I would leave them out there forever. They looked so at home out there on the line blowing in the wind.

Do you like aprons? I know you do. You might just find one of these in my giveaway coming up soon.

That red one with the blue flowers is just screaming to come home with me!!!

You are lucky to have gotten them - they are just lovely.

Oh yes... I like aprons... I generally wear a bibbed one when cooking. I've ruined far too may blouses when I don't wear an apron. Love them!

Ooooh! I love aprons! These pictures make me want curl up underneath that clothesline with my quilt my mammaw gave me and take a good nap! I have a few that I've collected over the years and I bought a pattern last week to sew some of my own soon.
Thanks for inspiring me to get off my bootie and get busy!
I so enjoy reading your posts!
Take care!

you got a good stash of them - I love it when friends know exactly the right thing to do with something. I was just sorting thru some of mine yesterday - I have a much smaller stash.

Oh, that row of pretty aprons looks so inviting whipping in the breeze out on the clothesline! I adore aprons. What's funny is, I grew up around women wearing aprons. When I was a young mother you'd have had a fight on your hands to tie one on me because I felt them old-fashioned (in other words, images from my childhood}. Now I'm looking for them at the thrift stores, etc!

Lovely just lovely! They look wonderful on the line...I love hanging things out on the line. Your pictures remind me of something that would have happened at either one of my Grandma's farm. I don't have quite that many to hang here on my farm but it would be great if I did! Thanks for sharing.

Ohhh to be Laura Ingalls Wilder ... but with air conditioning, and straight irons, and no snow ... oh and COFFEE. Definitely COFFEE. And lemon drops.

But otherwise JUST like Laura.

I prefer boxer shorts, but for those more formal appearances, I would love to wear one of those lovely aprons!!!!

Wow, what a wonderful treasure! I love aprons and enjoy wearing them while I cook, perhaps it is because I am a horrible spiller! big smile...if there is food involved it is usually on me somehow! Oh my...well girl....start cookin'!!!
