Our wonderful pioneer museum hosts a different collection for a month each year. One year it was old Wedding Dresses. One year it was the doll collection that Rosemary Kauffman left to the museum. Last year it was quilts and this year when I went in for Docent duties last week they were setting up a great Vintage Apron Display.

I actually had this pattern as a young bride.

Vintage Tablecloths

If you "served" at a wedding in the 40's, 50's and part of the 60's you wore one of these.

What a great exhibit. It's so fun to see a bunch displayed at the same time. Poor aprons! They usually wait folded up in a drawer for their moment of glory.

Love, your aprons. Of course, I love anything vintage, being a former antique seller. Happy fourth of July

This is a great post. Didn't we all wear aprons, when we were younger. I only wear one now, a full coverage one, when I cut Bob's hair.
