A little apron art and poetry

I was digging through some of my old photos and found this. I believe this photo was taken for a TAG contest last summer. I just love it! It would be great to frame it and hang it in my kitchen someplace.

I also found this wonderful apron poem today and just had to share!

When I used to visit Grandma.
I was very much impressed,
by her all-purpose apron,
and the power it possessed.
She used it for a basket,
when she gathered up the eggs,
and flapped it as a weapon,
when hens pecked her feet and legs.
She used it for a hot pad,
to remove a steaming pan,
and when her brow was heated,
she used it for a fan.
It dried our childish tears,
when we'd scrape a knee and cry,
and made a hiding place
when the little ones were shy.
Farm produce took in season,
in the summer, spring and fall,
found its way into the kitchen
from Grandma's carry all.

Wishing you a most wonderful weekend!
