~ Love this vintage apron.... blues and pinks!

I love finding these vintage aprons. The ones that have a lot of great craftsman ship. 
I can sew... and I can do basic hand stitching repairs. But nothing I can do... can compare to the ones I find that are decades old.


Now the best part is that this one has a removal bib! 
I did have to get creative to get pictures of this beauty. Yes, those are thumbtack's holding it up!  I swear I attempted to hang it on a hanger and drape it. But fail miserably in that little challenge. 

So I got the  thumbtack's out. Which of course, I could only find the red ones.

Anywho... she still is pretty. Even with the thumbtack's. 

Then there is this wonderful turquoise roses with the pink daisies. So delightful! 

I purchased these new turquoise Martha Stewart kitchen utensils recently. And I am in love! So I decided to show them off using this wonderful turquoise apron as the background.

 Now the best thing is this weird little funnel.
I love how it folds down and stores in a drawer. So smart!

Love the fabric that apron is made out of, so pretty!! What a great find. I love the new turquoise kitchen gadgets too, they are so pretty and I don't mind using the new ones, I don't like to use my vintage ones, for fear I will ruin them!! Happy VTT

I have two vintage aprons in similar style to yours.

I remember when we HAD to make an apron in Home Ec. class, do you?

Don't know where mine is now, though surely since it would be 42 years old it WOULD now be vintage!

Unfortunately, for me and my Home Ec. classes during middle school years... we had to make some truly tragic looking items.

A shirt with a draw string neck. A laundry bag with a draw string.

Made a couple of pillows.

And a mini quilt sized for a doll.

The quilt was the only thing that I learned something from the lesson. That has stayed with me. :)

That is such a pretty apron. I love to collect them!

I'm hosting my Homemaking Linkup Weekend and would love to have you join, if you'd like!

Have a great day!

This apron is a real treasure. Love the fabric. I have made aprons, but my favorites are my vintage finds! I adore aqua too! That funnel is awesome. Think I need to buy me one. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
