~ Apron Collection ~

Hello sweet friends! It's been a busy month, but then again, when isn't it ? My parents are up for a visit this week , but I had to pop in with a quick post and show you some new fabulous finds! I'm always looking to expand my little Apron collection and after seeing one that Kathy ( from Kathy's Cottage ) had made, I emailed her and asked if she had more, the one below is so beautifully made by her and the colors could not have been more perfect for my kitchen. Plus it has Rick Rac, and that just makes me smile!! Thanks so much Kathy, I love it!! You can head over to her gorgeous Etsy shop "Hens in Daisies" and see all the other beauties she makes too!

I also saw another from Tara's Vintage Kitchen, and caved in again, lol.... The yellow Swiss dot reminded me so much of one my Mom had, so I clicked "buy now" fast before it was gone ... Isn't it so pretty too?!

And now it looks right at home in my kitchen too, Thanks Tara! Your Etsy shop is wonderful also!

As I was going through Tara's shop I spotted a sweet little yellow creamer and added it to my shopping bag, how cute! I just adore yellow, it's so vintage!

I thought it looked right at home in my new hutch and was meant to be :) She also added the sweet little hankie , I love the colors in it and the vintage look it had too! Thank you Tara!

So now my collection has 2 more pretties! Thank you ladies!

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful fall season!!..... I'm just starting my Autumnal decorating now, so hopefully I'll be ready to post pics this coming week!

Have a fabulous and blessed week everyone!

Hi Cynthia!

I love your little collection! I must head over to see more on your links! I wasn't going to collect aprons but I got three as gifts and bought one myself so I guess I am now! Hope all has been just wonderful with you!

Kathleen Grace said...

I was just wondering today if the apron had arrived and how you liked it, then I opened my google reader and there it was:>) Thank you for your kind words, it really does look perfect in your beautiful kitchen! Your whole apron collection is beautiful and it reminds me of my own collection hanging in the kitchen. I am so glad you liked it!

Sue said...

Love your apron collection!
I finally got my kitchen redo done and have my aprons hung up where we can see them all the time. My folks were in from Arkansas this past week and since everyone wanted to help in the kitchen, we all ended up in aprons. I was so loving it...Pop over for a peek!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Looking at these pictures from your kitchen, takes me back many years to the hours of time I spent with my grandma in her kitchen, although your kitchen is a glorified version of her kitchen. She had many aprons, that she sewed for herself, and I remember she even made herself a Christmas apron. You have talented friends who create your beautiful, vintage aprons, and they sure add a lovely touch to your already cozy, inviting kitchen. I look forward to seeing how cleverly you decorate for the Fall,as I look forward to all of your areas of artistic decorating.

Hope you are enjoying your September.

Debra Howard said...

What great ways to display aprons. I have quite a collection but I haven't really displayed them. I guess I need to get them out. I especially loved the shelf with hooks and the aprons hanging on them.

Brenda Pruitt said...

I think I may be paying them a visit! I love the look of your aprons there!

P. said...

Yours are very nice.

I am old enough to remeber wearing aprons that my Grandmother made. She would roll the waist up to fit me as a little girl. As I get olderr and doing more domestic things in the house I find I am a slob. I think I am going to start looking at sales and maybe even get the older patterns out and make a few for me to use. Some of the ones you have shown are a walk down memory lane for me. Thanks Chris

Sue said...

Cinthia thanx for sharing this inspiring pix of your aprons, I don't have one apron like yours but I will whatever it takes for me to have one at least, I will probably will do it myself not a fashion designer myself but I really one want so badly, they are so cute and it sure makes your home look so homey.
