Mini Aprons .... Pink Saturday..

Happy Pinks to everyone....To join the pinky participants in the pretty pink on HowSweetTheSound. Let's go see what pretty things we can find..all in pink of course..
I warn you..the above pictures are repeats..!!!!!
These are 3 of my favorite mini aprons in quite a collection of every kind of apron, from vintage feed sack,bib aprons,half aprons, embroidered,pieced,quilt blocks, Sunbonnet Sues,crocheted, chicken scratched, gingham stitched, bottle aprons.... if it's an apron and I see it..I feel that it wants to come home with me.
And, most of them do...
I thought,since I can't do much,to sit and go throughmy collection to see how many I had...but after awhile I gave up unfolding,looking and refolding and re-placing..
my husband, seeing the mess and hoping for progress in a massive clearing out,then suggested that if I was tired of looking at aprons, perhaps I could go through and perhaps pare the hankie collection down. And truth to tell, it seemed like a good idea..*sighs. I admired, refolded and put them back in their storage. Yet again, enters himself..,looks about,offers to replace the boxes...and suggests I move on to perhaps crochet books..etc. By now, I like him less than an hour before and try not to suggest that he might be better off in another area, he brings in a large box of patterns..and then says, when you finish here, then you can get into the Sunbonnet Sue patterns. I froze him in his tracks with a look,I mean,..Sue's not going anywhere..(Do in England and I have made a vow..We both love Sue and all her little friends and we both have more fabric than is normal for any one person.., and so we've decided that whichever of us goes first..the other gets all the stuff.)
* I digress and lost my whole thought train, which after a pain pill, I'm not at my best anyway. Soooooooo, mine husnand has patiently,God love him, helped me with it all, has patted me on the head and hugged my favor,I haven't bitten him..:), and am now being told,I've been on the computer enough for awhile. Hence, there is the reason for the repeat of the above apron post.. I promise to do better next week... Happy Pinks to everyone..
A p.s. I have been making selections for the give away..I just have to get pictures, choose more things and get them posted. I'm trying my best..hugs to everyone..


  1. Lol, I just commented on the other post about your fall, pain killers work wonders don't they!? But I have to ask you....because this happened to my hubby, Does your husband look exhausted? Funny how they somehow....when it's over...think this happened to "them" Ha!

  2. Lovely pinks! Happy Pink Saturday!!

  3. This is so funny! Has he forgotten how you 'babied' him when he was ill? Hope you are feeling better. Happy Pink Saturday.

  8. Oh bless you! I loved this post. It is wonderful and I think we all get 'it'. Those boys! Mine at least has his one collection - he still has pieces of atari computer games from the 1980s - so he has to back off unless I get to 'clean out' his stuff!
    Hope the pain killer does its magic and you are feeling better soon-
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  9. Hi there! Loved looking at a part of your apron collection. Still taking pain meds I see. Bless your heart.....hope you get to feeling better very soon....from one "wacky" to another!!!!

  10. Love the aprons! Hope you feel better soon.

  11. Hope you feel better soon.

    The aprons are just so cute.

  12. Hi CC...Oh! now you can repost those aprons, hankys, crochet books and all anytime. And of course Sue is always welcome, too! Be careful of 'Biting the Hand That FeedsYa'. LOL! Funny post...I might need a pain pill after hoisting that chainsaw...thanks for visiting and Happy Pink Saturday!

  13. Hi CC, Oh hang in there sweetie, pain is awful and I give you credit for even being able to do what you are able to do..Love the aprons, they are my latest passion..
    Do what makes you HAPPY!

  14. Pretty aprons.
    Happy Pink Saturday CC.

  15. Happy Pink Saturday,

    Just love all your pinks. Have a great weekend.


  16. Men just do not always understand us ladies and our other loves. I had not seen your aprons before, or if I did my senior moment kicked in. You really have a great collection. Glad you liked your little surprise.

  17. LOL, I so understand. Have a great day.

  18. I loved your humor. I had not thought about Sunbonnet Sue in ions . what wonderful memories she brings back about my grandmother.

  19. Hey cutie, you post had me laughing out loud. Hey, all we can do it try, right? I think you're doing great.
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  20. You started my day with a smile. I do hope you are feeling better. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday
    and give no ground :-) Blessings...Mary

  21. CC! You are so funny! I am sorting too and I have no pain pills to help me with the project. I just can't bear to give any of my aprons and hankies away.
    Happy Pink Saturday. Don't forget to send me your address!

  22. I get that 'you've been on the computer long enough' all the time! Our husbands are really just attention-seekers, 5 going on 58 in Peter's case, lol. You did so well not to bite, or pull hair, or throw coffee...

    I'm not doing PS this week... I over-reached (literally) and have wrenched my back, so am just not up to blog hopping right this minute (only had 5 doors left to 2nd coat with paint, as well). I must say I am pretty cross with myself - I should have been more careful.

    I'm wishing you a very Happy & Sparkly Pink Saturday!

  23. Hi CC,
    Thanks so much for visiting and the warm welcome to PS!! It's been fun meeting so many lovely people.
    I love your vintage pretty!!
    Happy Pink Saturday, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  24. so did you break your pelvis?????? someone sent us here telling of your broken pelvis. That must be so painful!! Sweet aprons and glad you have a patient hubby.

  25. Love the aprons. Sometimes I feel that my collections have consumed my garage and studio. I must start sorting but then I get sidetracked just looking at the treasures.

    Happy Pink Saturday

  26. Hi CC and Happy Pink Saturday. I just read at She's Sew Pretty that you broke your pelvis! Ack and yikes!! You poor thing. Please take it easy and heal up.
    Your mini aprons are darling. But, I really like the fabric they're resting on....sweet pink and white stripes.

  27. Love your collection of aprons! Sometimes men just don't get it!
    I am here for the first time and hate to hear your not feeling well.
    I sure hope you do very soon!
    Thanks for the sweet welcome to Pink Saturday!

  30. Hi CC! I'm reading here you've broken your pelvis! Oh, poor one! I'm so sorry! Well, you do have some pretty aprons. Maybe your little hubby could wear one while he waits on you hand and foot! :) You're so funny and I just love that.
