It all started with that orange gingham apron. Remember that post here? Then a few weeks later I came home with another one. It seems every time I would visit my little thrift store I would find a different color gingham apron. You had to wonder if the same lady had made all of them at one time many years ago. And I wondered, what was I going to do with them all? (only paid a dollar for each)
The detailed handiwork on these aprons are simply awe inspiring. Works of art. I knew I couldn't just fold and tuck them away. They had to be out for all to see and enjoy every single day! So I had already bought that IKEA wire/clippy thingy in "as is" several months ago, so we finally put it up where the closet folding doors use to be and hung my gingham apron collection. I am thrilled with the results and so is Mrs. McGillicutty! Do you see that garden hat she is sporting? Found that cute "collapsible" garden hat at Goodwill for a dollar. Yes, it folds up. Yes, way cute. And yes, I can borrow it anytime.
