Picking and choosing from the drawers and baskets, I selected a collection of favorite vintage linens. I was leaning towards a cheerful combination of colors to greet me each time I opened the pantry door.
Through the years I have collected vintage aprons and potholders, although they are rarely used for their intended purposes.
Once in a while I will don an apron, but for the most part they have been behind closed doors. From time to time I bring them out to appreciate their simple beauty.
It was high time to bring some of them out of hiding.
At one time somebody spent a lot of time stitching them together.
This one is child-size.
I could just imagine a little girl wearing this one in my blue and yellow kitchen :). Maybe someday there will be a granddaughter.
Although, the apron does feature a Dutch boy and girl. Wonder if Jaxson's parents would allow him to help me bake?... nah, probably not.
Oh well, at any rate I'm happy to have a new home for a few of these treasures.
The rolling pin seemed like an appropriate hanger for a collection of kitchen linens. A blue and yellow rolling pin seemed destined for my blue and yellow kitchen.
