Apron curtains

I never wear aprons, but linger over vintage hand made ones in op shops, I love imagining the woman who made each one selecting the fabrics, maybe using her own remnants, adding her own special touches, tulip shaped pockets or a fancy row of stitching-all the time taken with embellishing these most everyday and domestic of garments.
Two vintage aprons I bought on a whim, then folded away in a box for years are finally seeing

the light of day, as curtains.

I strung them up by their side ties...and gosh, I love them so.
