Vintage Apron Fetish

Oh My! Just when I think I have gotten my vintage textile fix, I get into something these vintage aprons and I am in love all over again. I recently purchased about 60 vintage aprons, yes, I said 60! There is nothing like living large! LOL!! I have most of them washed, except the ones I have to mend. So now my laundry baskets are fluffed to the ceiling with aprons waiting to be ironed. I don't really like ironing, but I like how crisp and pretty my iron makes things, so away I go and this is what I have done so far....

Most of these were made by homemakers long ago - I love the variety of colors, patterns and designs - they show the personality of the gals who made them. Some are for sale in my shop and some are in my kitchen drawer - until next time :-) and thanks for stopping in!

How fabulous!!
I have a few my Great Grandmothers - I wish I knew how to display them without using them, I'm very messy!
