Alphabet Thursday "A" is for Apple

A few years ago my mother moved back to Texas.   It was a difficult and bittersweet move.  After 52 years
she was setting up house all alone.  There was a part of her that was a little giddy.  I talked to her several
times prior to her move and she talked about decorating her kitchen with apples.

I wish I had found this phone.  I can just see her sitting and chatting on an apple phone. Is this just not an adorable example of Apple decorating.  I found this when I googled Vintage Apples

Eventually her kitchen was filled with apples.  From canisters, to towels.  Of course there's a clock and a rug.  But I noticed there is no apron.  Now this is interesting because she makes and sells apron!  She just doesn't use on.

I got to wondering how many apple aprons I could find on Ebay.  Here are the results.

This one looks like one my mother would make.  If she made Apple aprons. (Snicker) Click here to buy it on Ebay.  The description says it's from the 60's.

How about one a little older . . .

All this talk about aprons makes me want pie . . .

I love that phone! Funny she has never made an apple apron. lol

A great idea for a kitchen theme, actually. Bright and colorful. Love the aprons, and of course the apple pie.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Neat post. That's funny how your mom makes and sells aprons, but doesn't wear one. I make them for friends now and then, but rarely wear one myself. Sometimes, though, I come across aprons that would just be fun to wear outside of the kitchen.

My mom always wore aprons in the kitchen. They're really quite practical.

I love that apple apron from the 50's! Funny that she doesn't use them herself!

I have arks - pictures and photo frames and mugs etc. in my kitchen and other rooms. I'm sure that just as my family think of me when they see a Noah's Ark that you think of your mum when you see anything with an apple. It makes for a nice association of thought.

Just finished eating my afternoon snack ~ an apple! The aprons are all fun, but the apple with pie crust is too cute.

Our family loves aprons.

I love the vision of her giddy with excitement over decorating as she wished.

What an adorable post for the letter A.
