Aprons and Cook Books

Over the past two days I have been busy adding some new aprons and vintage cook books to my Etsy shop.

Three of the cook books are from the 1940's and the other is from the 1960's. They are really fun to look through; just filled with tasty recipes. : )

As you can see my sister Hannah's cat Claude enjoyed being a part of the photo shoot. It was a lovely morning; and very cool under the shade trees.

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations." Psalm100:4&5


  1. Love your photos! So peaceful.....
    What can be better then vintage aprons and cookbooks! ;)

  2. Lovely pictures! You model the aprons very nicely, I must say. It looks more appealing than on a dress form!

  3. Thank you Cheri! I almost used my dress form, as I generally do, but my mom and sister convinced me not to.

  4. These pictures are so sweet. I agree, the aprons look so pretty on you. You should use yourself as a model more often! ;) I love vintage cookbooks, I have one in my hope chest from my great grandmother, it's a Fanny Farmer Cookbook. So timeless!

  5. Thank you Miss Elizabeth! Fanny Farmer's cook book is a great one. We have a copy and use it all the time.

  6. Love your vintage aprons. Simple and functional yet so pretty. What pattern is it?
    Thank you for sharing here on your blog. Very inspirational.

    1. Hi Anna,

      Thank you for your comment! I love aprons and have collected quite a few patterns over the years. Several are vintage patterns, but I do know that the half apron, sewn in lavender, is Butterick 4087.

      May you have a blessed day!
