Pretty Ginghams .... Vintage Things Thursday


It's my favorite day of the week again..and 3 of my favorite aprons. Ever'body, come join in the fun at Vintage Things Thursday. Suzanne is our lovely hostess with the mostess every week..and carries on each week without fail. So Suzanne, thank you so much for this fun day. If it should ever go away, I would truly be sad.. Click on ColoradoLady to take you straight to the vintage pretties.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I share with you three pink ginghams that I love..quite possibly of all the ginghams involving gingham stitch or chicken scratch, pink is probably my favorite color. The look is dainty,delicate and has the look of lace when embroidered. I do so want to do a small teacloth and napkins in pink..but I want to do so much, there's not enough time..so for now, the gingham embroidery will not be done for awhile..whilst I finish my other embroideries.
I am happy to say,that I really think aprons are making a comeback. I so hope so.
Show me a kitchen where an apron lives and I will show you a good cook. She may not be all that much a fancy cook, but she will be able to cook and invent as she goes along. Hopefully, along with her apron, she will have the kitchen of her dreams..
and there will be somewhere to hang an apron at the end of the day.
Hope you have as much fun on vintage day as I do..and now I'm away to visit the other participants. I can't wait to see what everyone has to show.

  7. Your pink aprons are so pretty CC! And I agree with you, there are just not enough hours in the day for all of the crafting that I would like to do. And I also think you're right about aprons making a comeback. I see them on alot of blogs, but none are as pretty as yours!
    Happy VTT!

  9. I love your aprons. My grandmother used to make them all the time. I so miss seeing her wear them on Sundays. I hope this finds your hubby doing better. Mr. P has rallied again, so things are "ok" for the moment. Prayer is a wonderful thing. My thoughts and prayers are with you darling..

  17. I love the gingham vintage aprons. My mom wears one all the time when she cooks. She has several that she "inherited" from an elderly neighbor several years ago and they all are put to good use.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
