THE LOVE OF APRONS!

(apron-ology)
*****
Have you heard?
Have you seen it?
It's spectacular!
If you have a love for aprons, or a love for vintage, or just a plain old love for creative and beautiful works of art ...then you have to get this magazine!


Aprons with attitude!

I wanted to share just a few of my favorites! ...This one is just gorgeous ...the best of both worlds linens and kerchiefs!

This one is by Andrea Taling and you can find her here


And this one ...is designed and made by none other than Calamity Kim.
She designs and makes some of the most interesting aprons I have every seen. She is one creative and talented and inspiring artist. You can view her blog here

This apron just blows my mind! It's knit, can you imagine a knitted apron?
This imaginative, delightful creation is by Pamela Powers. Her website is here

Last, but certainly not least is this beautiful vintage apron designed and made by Kathleen Grace at Kathy's Cottage. She makes the most fabulous vintage creations. I admire her talent and her creativity.

Kathleen created this wonderful linen and lace creation from her Grandmother's treasured fabrics. She even made the tiny little charm hanging from the pocket with the simple word 'nest'. You can visit Kathleen here http://www.kathyscottage.blogspot.com/

These are only a few of the many aprons featured in this magazine! You won't be disappointed! I have no vested interest in this magazine ....only a love for vintage linens and lace!

I'm an apron lover too - these are ALL great! What a wonderful idea combining the handkerchiefs with an apron, it's just beautiful.
