I'd posted this on my old blog but thought it was worth sharing again. I do not know the author...one of those little ditty's that get's posted or passed around on forums & emails.
The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, from pie dough, cake or biscuit flour, but along with that, it served well as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out children's dirty ears.
These are aprons made by g'ma's. The one on the left was made my John's g'ma Halterman and the one on the right was made by my g'ma Summers. I don't wear them...I either display them or keep them put away.
I remember my g'ma Prewitt always wearing an apron...it's was just part of her everyday dress. I wear them...especially if I have alot of cookin' / bakin' to do... I sometimes forget then end up with flour all down my front! I wonder whatever happened to all of g'mas aprons....I need to remember to ask my aunts.
So do you wear an apron? Do you make aprons? What's your favorite style of apron? There are so many styles...but I prefer the simpler aprons....much like a chef's...but it must have a pocket or two! Too handy...keeps kitchen shears close, cell phone, kleenex....you name it!
Hmm...maybe this post will inspire me to finish those aprons I have started!
Have a wonderful day!!
