Apron Goddess Mommy and Jr Apron God!

Good morning Apron Goddesses in the Land of Blog! It's been a busy summer around the mini farm we call home.

However, I have an apronography for you to see!

Susan and Jayson Halteman (age 5) sent in their photo wearing their vintage aprons. Susan wrote, "Now I'm sure you get plenty of females in aprons, but how about a boy?"

I think, "Yes, boys can wear aprons too!!" My son has been seen several times wearing them here on this blog so aprons cross gender boundaries regularly here and elsewhere.

Susan explained, "We were getting ready for our Father's Day barbecue and since I had on a sweet pink cotton apron to match my pink Swirl dress, he wanted to wear one as well. My apron is printed cotton with pink lilac blossoms, while his is a cute blue & white pieced bunny rabbit with embroidery. I love how the ears snap together in the back to make up the chest part of the design. Both of these aprons were inherited from family members and date to the 1940s or 50s. The child's apron in particular was worn by my mother when she was a girl, in the mid-1940s."

You can visit Susan at Practice in Time. It's about her adventures raising a vintage family in a modern world. She writes regular features on cooking and decorating with found treasures; all with an eye toward blending vintage values with modern needs.

I loved this post...I made my hubby a denim apron to use when he eats in front of the TV. It has saved many a shirt from disaster.

Not only do boys wear aprons, but men too! If you read Sara at Red Pine Mountain, she has many pictures of her Mountain Man wearing the aprons she bought from me. He's masculine enough to pull it off very well.

That bunny apron has got to be one of the cutest things I've ever seen! Now I want to make one... of course my Noah would refuse to wear it;-)
