Flea Market Friday: I am an Apron Goddess!

I do believe it is the first time I have ever been called a goddess of anything! I'm usually up to my elbows in dishwater, or bathwater, or sandbox sand... But I clean up pretty good!

As befitting an Apron Goddess, this morning at a yard sale I picked up a bunch of vintage aprons. (Don't hate me- I think they were 20 cents apiece!)

I happened to be wearing a vintage waitress-style dress which I am thrilled to be finally able to fit into. It was one of those "if I lose 10 pounds, I'll be able to get into this" purchases that sat in my closet for a loooong time! So we snapped a few photos of some of the new acquisitions. (The photographer was my son, the Apron God Jr., so forgive me if the photos are a bit crooked & awkward!)

The first is a vintage rayon apron. I don't think I've ever seen a rayon apron- I can't think this will be much practical use, since the fabric is so light- but it's cute.

This is my favorite, a printed & pieced cotton apron.

Don't I look like all I need is an order pad and a name tag that says "Betty"? ;)

I have a very large collection of vintage aprons, including several feedsack cloth full aprons from the 1930s. I wear them when I am doing housework or cooking, which pretty much seems to be all the time...

I know many of you probably already visit my friends over at The Apron Goddesses, but if you haven't been there, check them out, and see yours truly!


  1. Look at you! So adorable in those aprons! I'd like a malted, please. =D

    I always figured, if nothing else, I could make throw pillows out of my extra aprons and table cloths. I think I saw one person using her apron collection as drapes on small windows. Clever idea!

  2. Love the dress and aprons! Congrats on getting into it! I have so many little day dresses that are just "this close" to fitting...someday!

  3. Aw, you look lovely! I want a cute apron.

  4. Love the look! I'll have a slice of apple pie with ice cream. BettyLou
