tugging on vintage-styled apron strings
This coming weekend there will be many a big feast prepared in many a kitchen in celebration of Easter or Passover. But I wonder, how many contemporary domestics still wear aprons while preparing such a meal or everyday? I do – it’s a must for protection from hot spatters and stains and to help keep loose clothing from heat sources. But an apron need not be totally utilitarian – one can be a beautiful domestic goddess while preparing beautiful meals. I wear this modern with a nod to vintage apron from Domistyle, thoughtfully given to me by my then roommate so many years ago.
If you’re looking for a snazzy, vintage-styled apron to don this coming weekend or for any time you’re making a meal, Kitchen Stuff Plus has their range of brightly patterned Betty aprons on sale with a 20% off coupon (in-store and online), but only until Sunday.
And recently I was thrilled to discover that the venerable Quebec department store Simons offers free shipping in Canada. I have long admired their beautiful lines of kitchen textile accessories, including creative, happy patterns on a range of tea towels, napkins, table cloths, oven mitts, and of course, aprons.
