I’d never used an apron until my mom gave me an adorable vintage one a couple years ago. What was I thinking cooking bacon all this time without protection?? Plus, with the miniature floral fabric and tulip pockets, I feel pretty dern cute at the stove these days.
Recently, my great Aunt Dottie (best cook in the family) gave my mom a bunch of her old aprons for a fundraiser — an apron auction. Adorable, vintage, and a family heirloom? Gimme those. I still don’t quite understand how an apron that doesn’t protect your top is worth much, but the skirt aprons are so cute, I’m strategizing how to get away with wearing them as part of an outfit.
