Two fun new aprons…

vintage{y}apronIt’s early, early (5:30) and I’m getting ready to leave for the little show that I’ve signed up to do today!

I love both of these aprons and they are going with me.


They both have well-used carpenter’s aprons worked into them…

  2. These left me smiling. I bet they will go over big in your show.

    Recently I bought a bag of lace and stuff at a yard sale. There was a well used carpenter’s apron mixed in it…never would I have thought of using it in an apron. You have the touch. The second is my favorite of the two. The red and black trims set it off perfectly. The fabrics are so retro…love, love, love them.

    Hope you show goes just as you want it to.

  3. Hi Elaine,
    Love, love, love, the new aprons. I recently got a well worn Carhartt (I think that is spelled right) it is green and brown full bib with some crazy ties, I thought it would be so cute dolled up. I certainly have more ideas than time… I imagine you can relate to that??
    Hope your show went well, mine was more fun than profitable, but sometimes that is okay!

  4. Many years ago your dad hauled lumber to Exchange Lumber Co. Interesting apron!

    • Maybe I should have kept it for sentimental reasons…it seems I can attach a sentimental reason to almost everything…oh well, it’s gone now and the gal who bought it was in love with it…just as it should be! >
