My Apron Collection Better Late Than Never

I have spent my day running around, I had to take my mom to the doctor about an hour from home and then we went out to dinner so I haven't had any time to sit down and blog today.  I really wanted to play along so I asked HD to take some pictures of my apron collection and he is just the sweetest thing and did.

I have 8 aprons.  Three of them Twice Blessed Mommy bought for me, this one she gave me for Thanksgiving last year

And then she gave me this great Vera Bradley purse with matching apron for Christmas

And last weekend while she was visiting she stopped at an antique store and saw this beautiful Vintage apron and she so generously bought it for me



Now these lovely aprons are vintage they belonged to my great grandma, she was a very wonderful cook and I proudly wear her aprons often, my favorite is this white one with a the straps crossing in the back


I can't get this picture to go up right but you see the straps


She wore this pink one more for everyday cooking and so do I.  I use the pocket to collect eggs and hold toys....

This one is light blue gingham again an everyday apron

My grandma gave me this apron when I got married.




And last but not least is my beautiful apron from the Apron Queen, I love it!  I love the pockets for holding things and the colors are great!  
Oh and by the way, some of the pictures are by my computer where I spend my time talking to all of you...

Go over to We Are THAT Family for more apron fun today!

I love them all! And they all look cute on you. My mom is making me one to pass down to Madi.
I wish Madi & I could come and visit. Andy will have to run the car lot and the fence business both while Jan & Luther are gone. I better stay and help or he may be bald when I get home!! We will have to find a way to visit sometime.

I love your collection! And it isn't everyone who looks cute in an apron.

I have one apron, thanks to my late-grandmother. One day, we were talking on the phone and she said something about my aprons. I told her I didn't have any. She was horrified, literally.

A few days later, a big brown envelope appeared in the mailbox. It was a handmade apron from her. I treasure it.

The plain white "weight loss apron" is now display...don't knock anyone down rushing over to see it as it is not near as cute as all of yours!
