When I got home from the dentist this morning there was a package waiting for me on the porch. I was not at all prepared for what it contained. My mom sent me a copy of a book I've had my eye on, and my Great Grandma's apron. My Great Grandma was born before the turn of the century, and passed away when I was a little girl. I have very fond memories of her. My brother and I used to sit up to her kitchen counter on stools and sip root beer from straws. This is one of the reasons I wanted to add this counter to my kitchen.
My Grandpa (her son) passed away this summer, and my mom has been busy sorting through things left behind. She came across this apron in a hope chest. I feel so honored to receive this and to add it to my collection of aprons.
And, speaking of aprons, here's a picture of an apron I made the other night after the kids went to bed. I found two linen nap napkins on clearance last week and thought they would make an adorable apron. The plaid reminds me of candy corn.
