Everybody remembers Mom's or Grandma's aprons. Some were utilitarian cotton half aprons or smocks in pretty colors or prints. Some were used only for special occasions in holiday motifs or fabics of organza or satin. Any vintage film of the 30-40-50's show any respectable woman wearing a dainty apron in the kitchen or as the hostess. We cannot forget June Cleaver with her fashionable kitchen ensemble. There was even one with matching oven mitt and dishtowel. With the advent of women's lib in the 70's the lowly apron represented women's servitude, those apron strings, those ties that bind, and they were cut. Fast forward 30 years, and many stained frocks later, the apron has found new popularity and uses. There is a new Apronation(C) on the horizon. Whether new or vintage the apron is not seen as being only utilitarian, but expresses our personality, our unique apronature(C). Apron's are not only worn in the kitchen, but in the garden and craft room, on the sales floor, and even as fashion accessories. Look below and choose your apron.

Campbell's Inspiration

As on my Brown Gingham Creation Blog today's post is inspired by the chilly Autumn weather finally coming  Wait til you see what I found in the bottom og a box of apron's I purchased..................................

vintage 1930-40's Campbell's Kids apron ready material!
And, a new Campbell's  Recipe Book.....not in the same box.

I attached a vintage red and white plastic button to the waistband so you could keep a
potholder or wooden spoon close.

put em together and it's MMMMMM good as a set.
Perfect for the Campbell's Collector or as a gift for a birthday, shower, or housewarming.
