One of my favorite finds while up in New England last week was a vintage black gingham apron. I have tried to stop myself from starting to join in on the new trend of apron collecting but this one was too cute.
There was a little shop that had several aprons but I limited myself to this one since I know I would never make one like it. Smocking is not my thing! I wonder if this one was put aside for best and that is why it is in such great shape? My aprons are all working aprons and bear the battle scars or chocolate, tomato, and maybe grape stains!
I also brought back some vintage pieces I had left at my Mom's. The crochet edges on these pillowcases are really well done. I like how they look on the bed with my depression era quilts.
Thanks to all of you for you kind comments and your prayers. Surgery went really well...better than any of us expected. I'll be moving a bit slow (and definitely staying away from the rotary cutter) for a few days but hope to be back to "normal" within a week.
