THOUGHTS: Aprons can be deceiving...
There are many reasons why I wear an apron and it's not just cooking...
  • while doing housework to avoid getting clothes dirty
  • eating, I am good at spilling on myself
  • painting, it gets everywhere else but the apron though
  • used to wipe grandkids faces and noses
  • covers up stain on my shirt
  • gives my hubby hope that there is a meal being prepared
  • and cooking too
Wearing an apron makes me feel good, confident and domestic. I want to be like June, June Cleaver. She always looked beautiful, her house was perfect, her husband was happy, two good boys, (except when Wally was around), 3 delicious meals every day ( with every food group included) and she was never in a bad mood! She did everything in her apron! How did she do it? I think it gave her super powers like superman or batman in their capes.
Say YES to Aprons!
P.S. I hung my aprons with antique pickle forks. I just bent them and nailed right through the top of the fork. You can use small spoons or small butter knifes too.
