Apron of the Week

Apron attire

Do you still wear an apron to keep house? I do believe it is a ritual I will never abandon, for the very act of looping my pinny over my head, seems to switch on my housework button and get me in just the right mode to get my feather duster out and sweep away the clouds...

While it is clearly so very, totally, completely and probably preposterously unnecessary, I thoroughly enjoy soaking and hand-washing my aprons, so that on a Monday (laundry day in BrocanteHome Land) I end up with a small stack of lavender and lemon scented pinnies ready to hang from the laundry door and pop over my head when I am ready to get domestic...

And so my Darlings in honour of this ritual, each week I will be featuring one truly lovely apron from around the interwebs: sometimes new, sometimes vintage: but always perfect for inspiring just the right mood to fly through all the "jobs" you have got on your to-do list...

This weeks apron comes from Modcloth. Although I am usually a strictly floral kinda woman, I am rather in love with the horses stampeding around this apron, and the huge, generous bow delights the little girl in me who would happily adorn herself head to foot in bows if only the general public wouldn't stare so much...

All that and the neckline is perfectly scooped, and I do believe it wouldn't flap about so much, leaving a gaping hole, just right for dropping boiling carrots down ones cleavage like so many aprons seem to have.

Dear me, I really am a fussy madam aren't I? Anyways it's $44.99, available for shipping to the UK, and made by Modcloth.
