Vintage Apron Collection

Since I envision myself as a 1950's housewife (think non-smoking, of sane mind, Betty Draper) a diverse apron collection is a necessity. I love cranking my Frank Sinatra and taking a moment to peruse my display hooks to carefully choose my pick of the evening. 

As with most collectable items, it started with one. One singular item in which I fell in love and knew I needed more. As I grew up and into my Thriving Wife-hood I realized that aprons were a must for my life. They made me feel flirty, fashionable and added a bit of personality to every occasion.

My Thriving Mommy made some excellent contributions to my cause and I snagged some from my Grandma and Great Grandma as well. In piles at flea markets, heaped on tarps at garage sales, I would always spot a keeper and quickly snap it up.  When word started to spread that I was a devout apron lover, you can imagine how many beautiful aprons I received as gifts...and LOVE to showcase.

One for each season, holiday and occasion; to me there is nothing better than a beautiful apron to put the Thrive in Thriving Wife.

Flirty, floral, scalloped, laced or embroidered...I'll take 'em all!

Do you collect aprons? Which designs are you draw to?

Strive to thrive,
