History of 'APRONS' !!

I don't
think our kids know ,
what an apron is.
principal use of Grandma's 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.

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 out
the hulls.

In the
fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that

porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was

that will replace that 'old-time apron' that
served so many purposes


used to set her hot baked apple pies
on the window sill to cool

granddaughters set theirs
on the window sill to

They would
go crazy now trying to figure

were on that apron.

* I don't think I ever caught anything from an apron !!!! *
