Creative Spotlight: Aprons

Aprons and More Aprons

For some reason, I have been thinking a lot about aprons, which I never use. My grandmother, above, wore aprons all day every day. I have a couple of hers and am attempting to put my hands on them so I can take photos and show you. No such luck so far. Imagine: Losing something in my home. (It's about the third thing lately I haven't been able to find, and I hope that's not a trend.)

My grandmother Zelinda, who we called Nonna, was a wonderful woman who loved to cook and clean. She had the cleanest house I have ever been in. It's what she did.

Her love of aprons did not quite pass through the generations, but I am wondering if that will change. I own three other aprons -- a beautiful one crafted by a friend as a Christmas present; one given to me by my in-laws which was brought back with them from Ireland and one from Disney World.

Today there is an entire magazine devoted to aprons called Apron-ology so there must be a lot of interest in these garments. Although I have seen the magazines in stores, I haven't bought one. I just might have to change that.

Stop by to see more photos of aprons and a picture of my other grandmother, for whom I was named and who also wore aprons most of the time.


  1. Hi Teri loved this piece. I wear an apron every single day . It is my trademark. I still have my childhood aprons that my grandmother made for me as a child and have just started to wear a few she made for me as an adult. She crocheted and embroidered them so they are for special occassions. Great story!

  2. Thanks, G. Love that you wear aprons all the time!

  3. I use an apron almost every day, I am so clumsy in the kitchen. I own a couple, Wegmans has a cute display of them in the pots and pan section.
