a la mama
when my mom was here, she bought me this hook rack. i hung it up today just off my kitchen and i love it - thanks, mom! now i am looking for the perfect children's aprons to hang from the hooks. you know, i feel like i have seen just what i am looking for so many times, but now that i am ready to buy...i have no idea where to look?? and i was thinking, my children are 4 and 5, they of course no longer wear a bib, but an apron, hmmm, if i could get them into wearing aprons regularly, i might just be saving myself some laundry loads here. aprons are cool, right?

Aprons are very cool. Try etsy. I bet you can find some really cool handmade aprons there.

I love the rack your mom bought for you...and small aprons would look adorable hanging on the hooks.

I have found some cute vintage ones on EBay...there is a site that has vintage styled aprons that are adorable but my mind is drawing a blank...I'll get back to you with it.
Have a fun weekend!

What a beautiful hook rack and in your gorgeous 'signature' blue colour! When my children were little (they are 17 & 21 now) I had adorable oil cloth aprons for them. These are perfect not only for eating but for doing crafts in as well as they wipe clean.

CUTE! I am heading to the antique mall today. If I see any cute kids aprons, I"ll pick them up.

I have the worst cold, can't sleep, so I am starting my holiday shopping online. Anyway, I saw this & thought you might like it? Not sure if the blue is slightly off?? Anyway, I hope it helps.
