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 . . .
I like the '50's version better. Found here.
Wow. This one is supposed to be old too and it's only at .99! Click here to bid.
Another old one. Click here and here
Very cute I think for a newer apron. Click here
All this talk about aprons makes me want pie . . .
Linking this fabulous collection with Jenny for Alphabet Thursday. Join us next week for letter B!
Thanks for sharing all of those pretty apple aprons! Have a wonderful Friday and weekend.
Pretty designs for apple aprons.
Visiting from AlphabeThursday
Have a splendid weekend
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.
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.
My niece Karla has an apple kitchen too! Oh sweetness! I love aprons and I really love these you are sharing! That phone is so cute! A for ADORABLE! A sweet post and I wish your mom the very best on her new journey!
That apple phone is absolutely adorable!
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.
