Little Miss "Homegrown Housewife"

Enter the current apron giveaway from Gift an Apron HERE.

This little sweetie is wearing her Nana's apron! Kendra at The Homegrown Housewife (THH) is showing off her daughter wearing a handmade apron that has been passed down for three generations.

Kendra's blog banner includes a rooster crowing and a simple flower, two of my favorite things besides aprons. Her recipes make me drool every time I visit her site and I always leave hungry. NOT so good at 9:30 at night... THANKS K!!!

Then her "reason" for not sending in her photo was as follows, "Okay, so I'm a bashful person....so how about a pic of my daughter Hannah, wearing my favorite apron? Its not the prettiest but it was my Nana's....the stains and the fraid edges are worth more than anything."

But I can see it's a very pretty apron with a floral print and a lacy hem! And it's paired nicely with the pink blouse. And since it is from Nana that makes it ever better. History and love live in that apron.

Kendra says, "Hannah's in the kitchen with me for just about everything I cook or bake. Her favorite thing to bake are pecan pies for her daddy and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies...as for cooking...everything, especially chicken and dumplings! She will do anything to get her hands on the stand mixer or maybe she loves to eat as much as I do...thank gosh she doesn't have my metabolism. LOL."

Hurray for Hannah, one of the Jr. Apron Goddesses!

I love the idea of passing down an apron through history - what stories it can tell and what memories it invokes....The picture is lovely!

What a little cutie! Love the apron--those memories cooking with mom or grandma are the best... I hope I can instill the same fond memories in my daughter :)
