Please, please tell me where to get vintage aprons like the ones you have! I've been in serious lust for one for a couple of months now, but I can never find them!

And I love your vintage cookbooks too, how fun!

Oh, how I'd like to crack open some of those cookbooks. I've been caching them away, too, and we have some of the same ones. My favorite is that yellow plaid one--I just posted a recipe from it this week. My copy was given to my grandmother by her home ec teacher.

I don't have any vintage aprons, but I do have a few vintage cookbooks that I just love! Vintage is awesome.

That is a nice collection of both cookbooks and aprons

You are such a tease. How different are those two BH&G cookbooks, they must go a pretty far back?! I have a picture of me mum in a (not a that time) vintage apron (1930 something).

Those aprons reminded me of my grandmother. She wore some like that! And love the old cookbooks. I wonder how old those BHG books are :0)

What a wonderful post. I love old cookbooks, the aprons look so nice, just like whoever was wearing them took them off and hung them up. Very nice.

oh I wish I had endless space to be able to collect it all! But then my poor family would have to deal with it & I have all boys!
