Apron a Day Keeps the Blues Away!

Peekie & her favorite apron... A great way to re-purpose old skates....

While Gary & I were out & about today running errands and searching out hinges & knobs for the restoration of my little Mid-Century trailer, we managed to sneak in a visit to one of our favorite antique shops in Spokane.
While I could have walked out with a ton of "goodies" I showed great re-strength and only walked out with a cute apron....I do not have anything like this one in my collection, which by the way is growing like crazy. I love the pockets on this apron and so does Peek-a-boo!.
I also found these not so vintage ice skates but thought they would make a great way to display some silk flowers I had stashed away.
I am thinking about spray painting the skates in a Holiday Red color, add a lite touch of glitter & some ribbon in place of the shoe laces.... and then place Poinsettias & Holly in the skates....what do you think?


  1. Hi Gracie...I would definitely paint those skates...I just saw that in some magazine and they were stunning! Adorable apron. You two always have the best fun! Hugs!!!!!!!!

  2. Ditto.... I saw a pair of pink ice skates in one of my magazines & thought "How Cute!", I'll just put my own spin on a cleaver idea "borrowed" from a magzine.

  3. Go for some color, you are so creative they will be stunning. Adorable. Really cute suitcase, I want one. Well, I had one back in the sixties, where did I put that? Long gone, I am afraid. But I had fun decopague(sp)a sewing kit for Tracy for Christmas so I would love to do some more. Keep up the good work. Those runs to Spokane do you good! :)


I love hearing from you....
