Apron Love

Another Friday Pretties, y'all!

I had so much fun last week seeing what everyone likes to showcase.

So I just had to participate this week.

Please visit Joyce at I Love Pretty Little Things, and see a little pretty today!

This week I wanted to show you my tiny collection of aprons.

Although it is just a small collection, each one holds a happy memory.


I adore ruffles and fun colors.


See how fun they are lined up in my kitchen!  :)


The pink breast cancer awareness apron was a thoughtful gift from an old co-worker/ partner in crime.

The fun frilly one in the middle my lovely grandma gave me one year for Christmas.

And the cute green polka dot apron was from one of my best friends.

I love how each one holds a sweet memory from someone special.



Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!!

Very pretty aprons, and blog! I love aprons, I wear them all the time when I cook...and do dishes. How wonderful that you have some special history connected to your apron collection.

I am visiting from Joyce's "Friday Pretties" blog. I joined in on the fun. Just posted my Pretties a little while ago...:)

Have a happy Friday!

Ah the apron, my Mom never went a day without one while I was growing up. Think I'll see if she is willing to part with one so I can start my own memory collection :-)

I love your collection of aprons and the fact that each has a little story to tell. How special. Just like that Wendell Homes quote.

Beautiful post as always, dear.

I hope you have the best holiday weekend.

I always want to sigh after visiting your blog, Bonnie .... a good, deep-down sigh that comes straight from the soul. The things you show us almost always touch some sort of memory for me. Your aprons remind me of "home" and my mother and the farm we grew up on and of visiting antique store after antique store with my oldest sister over the years. Such sweetness. Thank you.
