Country Whites Weekend #4--From the Apron Collection

Welcome to Country Whites Weekend!


"It’s plain and simple and oh, so sweet.
Embrace your country whites and share them here!  
Inspire us. Take us home. Fill us with country charm."

Good Morning Everyone!
Spring is in the air, isn't it?


Nothing says "country" or "farmhouse"
better than a pretty bibbed apron
in Spring colors.
And, I have the perfect model to wear them. . .


Meet Millie. . . .She's the new kid on the block. . . .
or I should say, on the farm.
I found Millie orphaned in the corner of a really, really junky flea market.
She was begging me to take her home.
Didn't have to twist my arm much, once I saw the price tag. . . .
$8.00


I named her Millie because she's thoroughly modern. . . .
(as in the movie "Thoroughly Modern Millie" set in the 1920s).


Dressing her in farmhouse style was easy.
I simply visited my stash of vintage embroidered aprons
and chose a couple for her to wear.

She thought they were both charming. . . .


Millie seems to like it in the farmhouse kitchen. . .

It would be nice if she'd actually help a little
with the cooking--or dish washing,
but all she wants to do is stand there and look pretty. . . .
She doesn't want to dirty her lovely Spring aprons, I suppose.
Hmmm. . . . .
Maybe if I stand her in front of the sink,
she'll get the idea. . . .


Millie has shared her country white aprons with you--
now, it's your turn.
What charming country whites do you have to show us this month?
We can't wait to see them!

Good Morning Dru,
Millie is gorgeous in her farmhouse style. Love the aprons. What a find for 8 dollars. I would not have passed her up either. Just too wonderful. Wishing you a happy spring and thank you for hosting once again.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Morning!
This little dress form was just screaming to go home with you for only $8...what a still.
I hope she appreciates you rescuing her and then dressing her in the finest aprons.
'Course it probably went to her head if she doesn't want to do any work!

If I find I have some 'country whites' around here... I may write it and submit it. I don't think I've partied here before!
LOL!

Hi Dru...And, Hello, Millie!
Is there anything sweeter in the kitchen than a pretty little maid with her apron on? How I love both of your vintage aprons. The embroidery and applique is lovely.
Thank you for sharing, my dear friend and for hosting your beautiful party.
Have a nice weekend and happy St. Patty's Day!
Smiles,
