I have several aprons that have been given to me. This one was given to my parents when they were married from my Great Great Grandma (who had to be close to 90). She made it and embroidered the pattern at the bottom by hand. I don't think I realized when I was younger where it came from. I do remember that anytime I was in the kitchen, this was my favorite apron to wear. I always felt girly in it. I was excited when my mom gave it to me, especially now that I know where it came from.
