The principal use of Grandma’s apron was to protect the dress

Underneath, but along with that it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven

It was wonderful for drying children’s tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning 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 surprising 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.

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that old-time apron that served so many worth-while purposes.


Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the windowsill to cool

Her Granddaughters set theirs on the windowsill to thaw

They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron

I don’t think I ever caught anything from an apron except love.
