Hi Everyone!

It's been two years since I posted my first blog entry on Valentines Day 2014, so it's my blogging anniversary! When I posted that first entry, I wasn't sure if anyone would ever follow along, but so many of you have and it's been great getting to know you.

Thanks so very much!!

You are all very important to me!!

To celebrate, I have a special discount offer available,  just for my blog friends, at my Etsy shop. I'll give you the details at the end of today's post, but first let's take a look at this quick Valentine project. It will fill your house with notions of  "LOVE!"

Vintage Aprons

Friday, February 5, 2016

Hi There!

Wearing an apron, especially an old apron, always connects me with the past in a strange way. I have memories of my mom and grandmothers, as far back as great-grandmothers, in the kitchen preparing meals, making snacks, washing dishes and hanging clothes on the line, all with an apron tied around their waste. So when I wear one, I feel like one of them and I like that.

I was given several as gifts when I first got married and have collected more through the years. The old ones are always handmade and have their own personalities, reflecting those who created them.
