~ More Apron love.... blues and pinks...

These two aprons have been my go to aprons, since I bought them home. I really do love the looks of blue and pink used together.

And the use of pink ric rac just makes me happy. 

I really do love these old cotton prints. All those wonderful tiny blue flowers... are so sweet!

Now this next blue and pink apron... with the big blue flowers with the blue ric rac.... has seen a lot of use. And it has a permanent stain that I can not get out. It was barbeque sauce and grilling out side that caused it. I even promptly came inside to treat it when it happen... and I still ended up with a permanent stain!
I love this style of apron. And this one is long enough for me. 

I am nearly 6ft tall and these vintage bib aprons, tend to be too short for me. But not this one! 

I suspect this charming pink with the blue roses apron may have been this long due to the fact... my Grandmother had 3 sisters that were 6'3-6'4. Yes, tall girls run in the family. My Grandmother was the short one at 5'7. And this apron had originally been in her Mother's kitchen and the lady did have these three tall daughters.  Now it lives with me. The tall great granddaughter.  :)

Be sure to take a peek at all the wonderful pink goodness this weekend at...

I have several aprons but never wore them. My family did and they were handed down. Yours are very pretty.

Not only do I wear the vintage aprons... anyone who gets in my kitchen has to wear one too!

I have a few friends who now collect vintage aprons. We do an annual apron swap in June for fun.

I have been on the hunt for some new ones to give away. The estate/garage sales are starting back up again. Which is where I tend to find them.

The vintage ones I come across in the antique stores... are priced outrageously.
