All these images are crowding my world today....

I have an apron to sew from the retro print fabric using the pattern Simplicity 4692. It will be trimmed with the aqua bias tape. On Christmas Day, along with opening the aprons as gifts, we will browse through The Apron Book, by EllynAnne Geisel...full of memories and nostalgia about the days when every housewife had an apron drawer!

The house is coming into shape for the holidays....tidied, de-cluttered, cleaned and decorated....making room for all the loved ones soon to be arriving.

The candy cane and ornaments is a Christmas card from 1950...the year I was born....I found it by following Janet's suggestion ( )and using Google to look up Christmas 19-- whatever year you were born!

Pretty material for the apron. I like the aqua bias tape, too.

That is a beautiful card from 1950. I always like the cards from years past better than the new ones.
