A wonderful apron

My great grandmother made this apron and embroidered the names on in her own handwriting. My mom discovered it in a cedar chest and gave it to me. I love it! My great grandmother, Lula Belle, was a hard woman who thought no one was doing the best job they could. However, this apron is a testament to the fact that she loved us all.

The cork board is a bulletin board I made with the wine corks of wine we consumed one year. I have also made a wreath and I have enough to do another craft. Last year I made cork reindeer ornaments!

  1. The apron is wonderful!

    We have a container full of corks. I should do something like this. Love it!


  2. This is just a pure treasure!

    I love the corks so well used! I have a jar with many...I need to DO something like this!


  3. That apron is priceless...and such a lovely reminder of your heritage...your great grandmother sounded like my grandmother...she was German...such a hard worker...and never, ever wasted anything...including time...she was a treasure more so than I ever knew...I have great memories of her...so glad your mom gave you this apron...

    The cork board is great...I have a friend who made one of those, too...I have collected corks over the years...I always save them from special occasions...I write the date on the cork along w/who we shared the bottle with or the occasion. I read this somewhere I didn't come up with it on my own...but I did remember to "steal"...I mean borrow that idea...and that is good for me...the remembering part...


  4. What a lovely memory! Love it sweet Terri!

  5. Hanging in my kitchen is an the first apron my grandmother ever gave me. I stayed with her before I went to school while my parents worked. We cooked together everyday and that apron is very special to me. I'm so glad that you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine!

    Terri, what a sweet reminder of your dear great grandmother. I have an apron that was my gram's and it holds so many special memories for me.

  7. Hi Terri,
    Your apron is a true family treasure.
    Love the cork board too - can't beat a nice glass of wine now and then can you?!

    You asked me to email you re: my dolls, but I see you don't provide your email on your profile. (I am contactable through my website.)

    Best wishes,

  8. I love your great grandmother's name and what a wonderful keepsake you have in this lovely apron.
