and each has the end of a rope tied onto them .......
to make a clothesline.
Now I have a dryer and I use it......even in the summer.......
but I always love to use my clothesline
for drying bed linens and
for drying aprons.
There is nothing better than to put on an apron that has that fresh "off of the line" smell.
Don't you think so??
Aprons have been an important attire to women..........
all women at any given point of time.
They have been worn to wipe away tears,
or to carry baby chicks or fresh vegetable from the garden.
They have been worn in times of the hardest work we women know.
They have been worn to make us look our best....
.even when we already look our best.
and they have been worn to inspire all of us.
Some are beautifully crocheted
some are made out of lovely print fabric, with rick rack pockets
or embroidered ones
and some have embroidered embellishments .
I don't think I have found one vintage apron that looks like another.
They all have their own character.....just like the woman who once wore them.
And just like the woman who once wore them,
each has performed it's task at hand while showing it's distinct beauty.
