I know there are some apron lovers here so I thought you would appreciate this. My great grandma (102) died just a couple of days before Christmas and while it was sad she had also suffered a while so it was a blessing as well. Anyway my mom is helping clean her home and passing out mementos of her to the family. She found my grandma's old handmade aprons. They decided that I could have them. Some of the others passed them up because they were old. I am excited because they are old and some of them my grandma handmade. Some of these are from the 20's and 30's. I know there aren't many people who would be as excited as I am, but I know there are ladies here who understands.

Awesome. I love it! Are they the kind with the sewn on hand towel? My Gma has some of those that her mom made. So cool. People just don't know what a TRUE treasure is. Lol

Oh how lucky you are!!!!!!......I go along with Suzi with having apron envy...I have quite a few, used to have them hanging all around my kitchen at the old house.....I bought a bag of ..what I thought was old vintage material at a yard sale a few years ago, when I finally got around to opening it, I found the whole bag was full of vintage childrens aprons...or a very tiny woman...anyway. My 4 granddaughters love using them whist they are at my house.So happy for you, and if you would like to share, I can send you my address............lol....smile.
