Last Friday Mom and I went
out to a local neighborhood to check
out many yard sales. It was fun.
Sure, it would have been better had I
felt like myself...but...still.
When I walk up to a yard sale I admit
that I check out the owner of the home.
What kind of person might they be.
You meet some very interesting people
sometimes. I love to strike up conversations
when you get lucky like that.
This was the case at one sale we visited.
The woman was retired.
She was a very refined lady.
An artist with paintings on display.
And some very cute aprons.
For $1 each.
We took three.
Two for our house.
One for Mom!
I chose this floral in browns and oranges.
Admittedly not my favorite colors but there
was just something about it...
it was large.
That is necessary.
But it is also very comforting and sweet.
I love the long graceful apron
strings. They make a bow with
fabric to spare.
My favorite for "cute factor" is this
sweet little purple apron.
I picked it up for Chelsea.
I'll admit that it is a direct
result of my blogging habit that
I would even notice aprons.
That, and a wee bit of an addiction
to Grace Livingston Hill books as a
Thanks to those of you who post
about living simply, enjoying
the process of working in the kitchen
and keeping our homes.
You do make a difference.
I am proof of that.
