Flea Market Aprons

Sorry, but I'm having a little bit of 'computer rage' at the moment. So many pictures of things I would like to share but it seems I just cannot get them uploaded to blogger. For the last 2 days I have been trying with not much success. I suspect either my computer or the fact that we have very slow dial-up to be the culprit. It's time for my morning tea time and I will try to relaaaaax :) But before I go, here are the two aprons I picked up at the flea market (this was the most I could upload). They are very vintage looking~I think~ and well-worn but not worn-out, if that makes sense.
The fabric on the right was my favorite, with the blues & greens.

Here's a view from the back...

There is a wonderful little booklet from 1928 that I found at a yard sale with some sewing ideas for aprons, and I want to show you one I made, so I will try again to post when I am in a more patient mood. (Has anyone else experienced any problems uploading pictures to Blogger?)


  1. These are wonderful. I like green and blue together, also. They don't look worn at all, I agree and yes, that did make perfect sense. :)

    I can't wait to see the one you made. We've all been having problems with Blogger. It seems they're having some technical difficulties. In fact, I backed up my entire blog on xanga, just in case.

    I was so happy to see your post! I really like your blog alot.

  2. I really like your aprons too! So oldfashioned, very lovely.

    I also have had big problems with Blogger. But it seems ok now. :)

    My great grama wore aprons just like those! Memories....

  4. Oh I love them!! Give away..ME! ME! Love your skirt..I dont know why you second guessed yourself! Looks great!

  5. I am just thrilled having found your blog!
    I have had fun reading all your past posts! And I feel such a connection to you!
    I'm a farm girl from WI, having moved to Phx 30 years ago, married my wonderful hubby and raised three kids.
    Life is so good, but I long for the simple, homespun living of my childhood. So all you awesome bloggers are helping me reconnect to my past... those things I loved doing, but have put on the shelf while raising my family. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I LOVE these aprons. They protect more than today's aprons do.

    Love your blog. I found it yesterday and have been pouring over your archive. Your style is very similar to mine.

    Thanks for sharing,
