New Aprons Coming!

I am making lots of new aprons, different styles too.  I am doing some vintage bib and vintage half aprons.  I think they are going to be so pretty.  You can put one on and be the Hostess with the mostess.  So old, I know.  I have purchased some really pretty material and have more on order.  Even Mod fabric.  Will be putting them on starting Sunday and through out the week.  Also some new recipes.  My famous Chicken Salad and Pretzel Salad.  One of my husbands favorite.  He has lots of favorites.  See you soon...  Remember to always smile when cooking.

"Grandma's Apron"

I read this today and thought it was so perfect.

Grandma's Apron(author unknown)

When I used to visit Grandma. I was very much impressed,
by her all-purpose apron, and the power it possessed.
For Grandma, it was everyday to choose one when she dressed.
The strings were tied and freshly washed, and maybe even pressed.
The simple apron that it was, you would never think about;
the things she used it for, that made it look worn out.
She used it for a basket, when she gathered up the eggs,
and flapped it as a weapon, when hens pecked her feet and legs.
She used it to carry kindling when she stoked the kitchen fire.
And to hold a load of laundry, or to wipe the clothesline wire.
She used it for a hot pad, to remove a steaming pan,
and when her brow was heated, she used it for a fan.
It dried our childish tears, when we'd scrape a knee and cry,
and made a hiding place when the little ones were shy.
Farm produce took in season, in the summer, spring and fall,
found its way into the kitchen from Grandma's carry all.
When Grandma went to heaven, God said she now could rest.
I'm sure the apron she chose that day, was her Sunday best.
