I adore aprons. This is one I "dolled up" for a swap. I am so happy that they have once again become popular! Whether they are handmade, vintage, embellished, or a bit of each, they are fun and functional. For me of course it's the nostalgia of an apron, and the women who wore them in by-gone times that makes me ponder. Who doesn't think of a mom, grandma, or even great grandma in her kitchen frying chicken, or pulling a perfect pie out of the oven? Aprons are now worn as fashion, and they look fabulous! My waist however is not as small as it use to be. Still, one day I want my grandchildren tugging on my apron strings, which will be firmly knotted with my heartstrings.
