Walking on Wednesday - Grandma's Apron

The principle use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, but along with that, it served as a holder for removing hot pans from the oven; it was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was eve used for cleaning out dirty ears.
Old Time Kitchen Vintage Waist Apron
From the chicken-coop the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.

Vintage Christmas Smock Apron
When company came those old aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids; and when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.

Brown Checked Smock Apron
Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove. Chips and kindling-wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.

From the garden it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled it carried out the hulls.

In the fall it was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees. 
Black Neon Striped Reversible Apron
When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.
Red Tulip and Daisy Vintage Smock Apron
When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out on the porch and waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields for dinner.

It will be a long time before anyone invents something that will replace that old-time apron that served so many purposes.

I remember my Grandma carrying green beans from the porch, where we just spent the afternoon 'snapping' them, in her apron to the kitchen to cook for dinner. 


What great memories do you have of your Grandma's apron?

  2. I absolutely love these aprons and the "message" about them :) Many years ago on one of my old "dinettes" I used some of my grandmas' old aprons to cover the seat cushions...and I wish I still had that dinette today :)

  3. I love that black striped one too, Sissy! Needs a good ironing, but then it will be so awesomely slinky!

    Spanky, what a great idea! I was tempted to use the fabrics of these, but thought someone might still use them for their original purpose. I hope someone does.
