Look at this BEAUTIFUL apron I won in a recent giveaway from Deb and Kathy at Second Hand Roses! It’s vintage! And embroidered! And PINK! I just LOVE it!
If you’ve never read the Friday morning posts at Second Hand Roses, you MUST subscribe to their blog! Deb and Kathy give a tongue-in-cheek play-by-play of their visits to local second-hand shops and sales, like Be Kind to Animals, Please and Another Friday, Another Estate Sale. They make me laugh every time! They’ve even invited me to go shopping with them next time I visit Colorado . . . it’s on my bucket list!
Thank you, Deb and Kathy! ♥

Love aprons. I’ll look those site up. They look interesting.
You’ll really enjoy it! 🙂
I love this apron! It reminds me of the very first thing I made in home ec – a red checkered apron. Of course, my apron didn’t look quite like this one. So there were a few crooked stiches here and there. 🙂
Me, too, Nancy! Mine was navy and white gingham . . . and I still have it! 🙂
Thanks so much for the tip about the Second Hand Roses blog! Hilarious!!
Aren’t they great??? And we all need a laugh on a Friday morning! 🙂
Oh my goodness, this is beautiful! I’m so jealous!
Isn’t it??? The style! The color! The embroidery! 🙂
The apron is adorable. Thanks for the heads up about Second Hand Roses. I actually laughed out loud reading about the not-so-good experience at an estate sale. Hilarious commentary.
I’ve done that too! I just HAVE to go shopping with them in person someday! 🙂
I love aprons + this one is super cute!
I agree! I just love everything about it! 🙂
Katherine, you’re always sharing the best. Both the site and apron are beautiful. Continue to Be A Blessing because you’re Blessed. Mtetar
Thank you, Mtetar! 🙂
You’re welcome, Katherine! Be A Blessing because you’re Blessed. Mtetar
I don’t wear aprons…but, I’m drawn to their uniqueness sometimes…or cuteness…The checks make great followings for cross stitch…
They do! I have the first apron I ever made . . . it’s navy and white gingham and I’m tempted to embroider it now! 🙂
love it and their blog
yay me … thanks for the suggestion
Very cute, love the cross stitch…lucky you!
I know . . . so lucky! 🙂
cute cute! I’m headed over to check out their site.
Yay! Have fun! 🙂
That is the sweetest. Boy that takes me back, too.
I know! I can picture my grandmother wearing it in her kitchen! 🙂
It’s absolutely scary how many of these I have in my possession and am wearing!! Along with the cross stitch, we used to do what was called “chicken scratch” embroidery. Fun!!!! Takes me back…….
You’ll have to read Deb’s post about her apron collection . . . you two must be kindred spirits! 🙂
Will do. I’ll have time today to visit! Thanks for the heads up….hugs……
Oooooh, I love Pink too and LOVE this apron! I could really use on of these badly!
It’s so much fun to wear . . . although I’d look even better if I added a shirtwaist dress and high heels! 🙂
Oh, now you’re talking!
Thanks for showing off this lovely apron. Its gorgeous. I loved the post. Thanks for referring Deb’s post on aprons it was great also. Have a wonderful day.
I’m really glad you enjoyed it, Marie! Thank you! 🙂
I love ti, it’s adorable! I’ve been wanting an apron for a long time….now I just have to learn to cook…. I’m in Colorado too, so you should do the Colorado blog circuit! 🙂
Most definitely! And I LOVE Colorado!!! It’s our favorite place to vacation. 🙂
very pretty apron Katherine! you are one lucky girl! I love aprons because my grandma and my mom have always worn them! I only have one; a pink one 🙂
I remember my grandmother wearing one pretty much all day long . . . I think the pockets were handy! 🙂 And YAY for pink aprons!!!!!! 🙂
🙂 YAY! yes! 🙂
my grandma too she wore an apron every day, she still does, except that now she doesn’t cook every day because she is much, much older 😉
Reblogged this on My Devon and commented:
Great use of chicken scratch. I love doing this.
I’m so lucky to have this in my small collection now! 🙂
With the hearts and pink color . . . that’s the perfect word for it, Victoria! 🙂
I remember making one of these in my 7th grade home economic class. It was in yellow gingham. 🙂 Talk about a blast from the past. 🙂
Mine was navy gingham! With a drawstring waist (one size fits all!)! And I still have it . . . thanks to my mom who wisely knew that I’d cherish it someday! 🙂
Congrats to you! I love it!!!
Thank you! I’ve already tried it out and I think it makes me a better baker! 🙂
Oh, I *know* it would make me one ;)!
I have a collection of these beautiful aprons, your pink one is particularly pretty!
I love it, too! I hope you’ll get a chance to read about Deb’s collection . . . you two must have a lot in common! 🙂
