Ooooh, Aprons!

Following on from my last post about my car boot finds, I could not believe my eyes when i saw a basket sat on the floor with a gorgeous array of 1950s aprons. I could not get in there quick enough to have a rummage. Oh my, i was not disappointed at all. I bought six and was so so chuffed with my purchase. So chuffed in fact that i went back and bought the remaining six. The fabrics are stunning and i love the way the aprons fit (they cross over your back). I decided to do a special photo shoot of the aprons all hanging on the washing line so that you can see them in all their glory...

Which one is your fave? I’d love to hear what you think of them! Can't wait to bake now...

  1. Oh my goodness! I love them! My fave is the 6th one along, the darkest red one.
    Funnily enough I was looking through some homemade ones in the charity shop the other week that looked very similar. I wish I'd got one now! :) x

  2. What an absolutely fantastic find! Lucky girl. The ones I like the most are On picyure five: 1, 4 & 7 and on picture six: 1 and 3
    Enjoy the baking!
    Take care

  3. I like your style - buy one - buy them all! Hard too choose a fave they all look fab - although there is a red one which is catching my eye.

  4. That is so funny hunny...I went there today and picked up a turquoise one with white polka dots!!! It was pretty busy too!! Will have to meet up there one day then I can go and show you round Fantasy crafts too!

  5. Hello, I have just come across your blog and cant believe I havent found it til now it is full of beautiful things! Amazing find with the aprons, my fave is the one on the left with the blue roses but they are all wonderful! Off to have a read of your older posts and am now a follower! XX

  6. Oh my, how divine are they, you lucky lucky girl, well done you and I can well see why you bought the lot, it would be rude not to! Hard to choose a fave but in the last photo I like no 2 and no 4 (counting from the left). I have a couple like this, bought one from the vintage clothing shop in Totnes and one from the stall at the Severn Valley Railway '40's weekend, sadly not for a pound!
