Not having anything much to blog about today I thought I'd do a short post on aprons. My mom always wore an apron. Her everyday ones were practical and she had some really pretty ones for Sundays. When unexpected company came down our long driveway she would whip off her old apron and quickly tie on a clean one.
Her aprons had other uses than keeping her dress clean. She'd use it to bring in eggs from the hen house or vegetables from the garden. It was useful for drying a child's tears ( and mom was not above using it to wipe a child's nose).
I have some lovely aprons and try to remember to use one when I'm working in the kitchen. None of mine look like the ones in these ads from the early 1900 's .
Did your mother wear an apron most days? I'd love to hear your memories.
Thanks for visiting,
