I put on my apron a while ago to wash dishes and deal with other sloppy stuff. It took me back.

To a time I vividly remember, when both of my grandmothers, and the one great-grandmother who was living, just automatically tied their aprons on when they entered the kitchen.

When did we quit doing that - when wash and wear came out and women were no longer slaves to a day (or more) of ironing for a large family?

I liked their aprons better than mine.

They were softer.

And they had rick-rack.

I want rick-rack.

Well, I broke down and ordered a vintage apron online last night...

But there's no pocket on the front to hold matches to light the burners with. (Or the lantern depending on how far out in the country your granny lived)

I love that apron. Just promise me you won't wear it over a cardigan with a tissue tucked up your sleeve. 'K?
