Children's Apron

Manufacturer: Mary Lois Henry - Local Crafter
Item number: 762

 

Product description

Handmade.  Light Blue floral and butterfles.  Label - Grandma's Apron, The principle use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress but along with that, it served as a holder for removing hot pans from the oven.  It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaing out dirty ears.  From the chicken coop the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven  When company came those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.  And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.  Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.  Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.  From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables.  After the peas had been shelled it carried out the hulls.  In the fall the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.  When unexpected company drove up the road, it was suprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.  When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.  Crafter attended Higgerson School for all 8 grades and graduated in 1953.  Her mother, Mildred Henry, was an accomplished seamstress and taught all of her daughters to sew.  She lives in New Madrid.

Product description

Handmade. Bright Pink Floral with ruffled bottom.  Label - Grandma's Apron, The principle use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress but along with that, it served as a holder for removing hot pans from the oven.  It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaing out dirty ears.  From the chicken coop the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven  When company came those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.  And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.  Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.  Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.  From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables.  After the peas had been shelled it carried out the hulls.  In the fall the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.  When unexpected company drove up the road, it was suprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.  When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.  Crafter attended Higgerson School for all 8 grades and graduated in 1953.  Her mother, Mildred Henry, was an accomplished seamstress and taught all of her daughters to sew.  She lives in New Madrid.
