Pink Pig Apron

Manufacturer: Mary Alice Higgerson - Local Crafter
Item number: 774

 

Product description

Handmade. Orange and pink floral pattern.  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 1949.  She taught at the school from 1953 - 1968.  Today, you can often find her giving tours at the school.  She lives in New Madrid.
