Being a sentimenal person I have among my dishtowel drawer "Grandma's Apron"
It is a sturdy pinafore apron made up of white muslim trimmed in green wih a little pocket that my Grandma Fidazzo made .
I can still visulize Grandma wearing her hairnet over her snow white beautiful hair and her apron on making one of her home made recipe's. Home made Gnocchi's, Ravioli's and her homemade Pizza which everyone just loved, , they were just some of the delicious meals that she made with loving hands.
She wore her white apron every day but Sunday, Sunday she put on a fancier one but sill made by her hands.
Grandma would stay at her sons and daughters home's for visits every once in a while and she always brought her apron. Once when she was at our home she left her beloved apron behind, I have that loved apron to this day and treasure it - I don't wear it, I did have it hanging in the kitchen for a while but was afraid it would get ruined so back in the disth towel draawer it went and is still there.
Today's aprons are considered to be novelties, There are bar-b-que aprons, printed ones with funny sayings, ones that look like tuxedos, all kind to choose from. But, the aprons of yester year are scarce - except for those of us who are fortunate to have one of "Grandma's Aprons"
