Aprons & Potholders

Aprons & Potholders

Aprons for the whole family for all occasions.

A cute history of aprons that someone shared with us:

"I don't think our kids know what an apron is.  The principal use of grandmas apron was to protect the dress underneath, because she only had a few, it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and they used less material, but along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.  It was wonderful for drying childrens tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.  From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chick and sometimes half- hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.  When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. And when the weather was cold grandma wrapped it around her arms.  Those big old aprons wiped away 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 the hulls.  In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples thaat had fallen from the trees.  When unexpected company drove up the road, it was suprising how much furniture the old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.  When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved the apron, and the menfolk knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.  It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace the 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes."-Author Unknown
