My Entry for the FABULOUS not-a-contest GIVEAWAY

Apron Memories: Tie One On - An Apron Of Course !

Apron Memories is hosting a contest with the most FABULOUS prizes! The entry requirements were so easy, I couldn't NOT participate. Click here to see why I am so excited.

When we moved into our fixer upper's (That would me my husband!) dream, the kitchen was going to be the first thing we remodeled. Gut it, redesign it and Viola! The kitchen of my dreams. After almost a year of using a crock pot, electric roaster, microwave, electric griddle and our gas grill to fix our meals, I told my husband I didn't want to go through another holiday season with out a stove or oven. The fridge is still in the dining room, but at least we now have a good used stove.

Here are a couple of pictures of my depressing kitchen.

Because it doesn't look like I'm going to be getting that dream kitchen soon, during my spring cleaning frenzy I decided to "spruce up" the kitchen and at least make it look a little homier. Not wanting to spend any money, I dug out some of my vintage kitchen things, including a table cloth. Then I dug around on my apron rack. Here are some pictures of the results.
It is not my dream kitchen yet, but with many of my much loved vintage things displayed, it is a much nicer place to work.

Your kitchen is cozy. I love the aprons for window treatments and the blue stemware I see peeking on the shelf is lovely.

Good idea with the aprons. Just keep dreaming-- you'll have your dream kitchen one day and will love every inch of it. I think it's great to have an 1890's house (is that the date you said?). I love old houses. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You blog is so interesting, i just couldn't stop reading. I'll be back!!

I love the way you displayed your aprons and the vintage cloth draped over the window is wonderful!

Definitely cozier! Vintage textiles add so much charm. That was a good idea.

You'll love that dream kitchen when you have it!

I enjoyed seeing how you've accesorized your kitchen with vintage aprons. I have a small 4-peg rack that i'l try putting up in my kitchen to display some aprons. Thanks for the inspiration!
