creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

In the mail…

I haven’t sent this apron into Apron•o•logy yet.  I wanted to send it with a special letter and the idea for that letter just wasn’t coming to the surface.


A couple of days ago the ‘thoughts’ that I had been looking for began to formulate and this is what I will be sending off with this apron creation!

Vintage{y} apron tag

When I create these aprons I use a fun variety of found items.  This tag will give the owner of the apron an idea of what was used in it’s creation.

  2. Hi . . . I was just wondering if you know who all these grandmothers are? They definitely were apron toting grandmas. My Grandma Hill always wore a dress with an apron over it. So did Grandma Alby. I wish I did, but I don’t wear dresses very much. Love your creations.

  5. […] But, now it’s changed just a bit.  Remember when I submitted an apron to Apron•ology? […]
