How Much Is Too Much? Or, A Glimpse Into The Life Of A Hoarder....

Last November, I helped coordinate and serve a Pre Thanksgiving meal at my sons' school. While the other volunteer's all sported gorgeous vintage aprons, I was immediately green with envy. I was almost taken aback that I, the self proclaimed vintage diva, didn't even "think" about looking for and showing off a fabulous vintage find.

Almost immediately, my quest for a vintage apron began. I was going to be prepared for next years Harvest Feast! Aprons seemed to appear at every turn, each "new" find more fabulous than the next. It is now 6 months and approximately twelve aprons later and my question is, "how many vintage aprons does a person really need"? I keep on telling myself that I need to part with some, but it is obvious that I am just not ready. Stay tuned, this blog may be just what I need to start listing my aprons in my Etsy Shop, Caroline's Curio. When I stop calling them "my" aprons, I'm assuming they will be listed.

Today, I went to one of my favorite haunts, St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Store and of course one of the first things that caught my eye was a beautiful pink apron with dainty with red flowers...... and today, this one is my absolute favorite!
