I know what you mean about those great aprons - love having them around, but forget to use them when needed. Thanks for the reminder. Have wonderful holiday weekend & happy anniversary. Hugs, Troy Louise

Wonders Never Cease

Pretty aprons!
Have a wonderful weekend!


nicely put!


I have struggled with the "best" way to photograph aprons...and now I see that the best way is quite simple. Congrats on another beautiful book!


I love aprons! Putting one on makes cooking and cleaning more fun. Don't know why exactly, but it just does. My mom always wore won. Of course, my grandmother,(Nonnie) did too. I have several and have just gotten the cutest pattern for another one. Imagine wearing one for a Memorial Day BBQ picnic in your backyard!

Wrinkled and rumpled but still favored . . . lovely description of memorials to our lives.


Hi Charlotte, So nice to hear about someone else who loves to gather & collect pretty old aprons!!! On top of that I also seem to collect fabric & patterns for them as well???...There is no hope for me!...Have a lovely weekend!....So enjoy your blog!...Heidi :)


I love the idea of putting on a pretty apron and cooking for the family but always forget until I spill something on my clothes... perhaps it would also help make cooking seem more fun? Have a lovely long weekend.


Oh I could not live without aprons. Have a lovely weekend and do not work to hard. Clarice
