Monday ~ Vintage

This Memorial Day I send my prayers to the families of those who served in the military and gave their life so we could have freedom. Today we honor their service and sacrifice. At 3pm is in the national moment of remembrance.
Today I will be taking a holiday from work. I will spend the time with my kids at home. I have several project going on. For Blue Monday, I am working on a delicate blue vintage apron I bought this past weekend. It is so beautiful and needs a little be of TLC to get it back to its' splendor and glory. It is just an apron to some but to me it is a moment in history. It is families gathering around the kitchen table as dinner is prepared. It is visions of mom in at the stove, wearing her apron as she bakes. The nostalgia of a time when things were simple and the life traveled at a slower pace. To revamp the apron it will take some re-stitching and creativity to cover up minor stains. The apron is adorable and a piece of history.

  1. What beautiful blues here today!! I just adore that sweet apron!!


  2. You're saving a piece of history by fixing up this pretty, blue apron. Happy Blue Monday.

  3. We need more people as interested in the history and keep records of them. The younger generation needs to do that for the next generation. I am sure that cute little apron could share some good tales if it could talk.

  4. Love the apron! Happy Memorial Day!


  5. Love that blue apron. I love to cook and I realize I haven't own one apron!! ^_^ Happy Monday!
