Aprons galore

They hang in a corner of the kitchen, ready for service whenever I need one. They may be stained from their many hours in the kitchen, but that's what they're for. They're my kitchen aprons, and they're getting a lot of use now that the jam-making season is going full speed.

I pulled them out for a little better view. This coffeehouse apron is quite faded. It goes through the wash a lot. I bought this one - treated myself to a good apron to protect my clothes in the kitchen.

The pink apron (it's pink, even though it looks quite pale in the sunlight) was a Mother's Day gift. It's in the best shape of the aprons because it's the newest.

It's not just pink; it's a special pink. Part of the proceeds from the purchase went to breast cancer research. The straps sport little ribbon designs in white.

And last - but never the least - is the apron Chuck bought me in Seattle. I enjoyed the city and fell head over heels in love with Pike Place Market. While I was browsing, Chuck bought the Pike Place Market apron without my noticing a thing.

And now, enough of the apron trunk show. It's time to put one of these in the wash, one of these on, and get to making blueberry jam. Yum.

What a sweet collection. I especially like the pink one with its specially decorated string ties.

I too have a collection of aprons! I love them and I WEAR them for actual work just like you do. Frequent washes and lots of wear just make them feel like an extra skin to me! My fav is the Pike Place one.:)

When we were in Paris in April, I saw aprons at every souvenir stand. I meant to buy one, because how cool would it be to whip out my apron from Paris and wear it while I'm cooking? Unfortunately, I forgot to get one ... probably because I was on a quest to eat as much French bread and pastry as I could. :-)
