Friday Show & Tell . . .



Today I'm telling you about great
gingham creations from the 1960s.


During the 60s aprons like this one that
belonged to my Mother were very popular.


Another gingham craft was making pretty
pillows. My Grandma Ruby made many of
these beauties for herself & family members.

Here's a stylish apron I found on line.


Love it!

The pillows remind me so much of my childhood.

The red and white gingham is so happy.

Hi there.
I linked to your sweet blog from Darlene's, and I love it!
Love the aprons. I wear an apron every day. I've been needing to make some new ones... I'd better get cracking!
Hope the sun is beaming through your windows today. Have a great day!

Great post Carol! My grandmother wore an apron ( a full one much like the last red one). My sister and I each bought one that we spotted at an antique shop a few years ago. I think of Grandma each time I wear it.:)

Thanks for the memories!
Have a great weekend:)

I have a green gingham check apron almost like yours that I found at an antique/collectible shop a few years ago. It has some cross stitch trim. I love old aprons. They are quite the rage nowadays!

I love gingham. I remember those pillows when I was a girl, and I still have my grandmother's old gingham apron.
