Retro Aprons Will Put You in the Mood to Cook

We're not very big on oversized and overequipped kitchens, having sadly observed over the years that there is too often an inverse relationship between d├ęcor and deliciousness. Give us some sharp knives, some good pans, some reliable heat, and a little bit of counter space, and we're generally pretty happy. But every so often we see something we covet, because we know it will make cooking more fun.

Case in point: Becky McFarlan Schreiner's wonderful retro aprons, which are available online and can be viewed on Facebook. For their anniversary this year, Tim gave Ruth an old-fashioned number with big red buttons, polka dots, and blenders (yes, blenders) on it, and she feels like Lucy Ricardo every time she puts it on. The apron is a daily reminder that cooking should be fun, and that even the occasional kitchen disaster can still be good for a laugh.


  1. Oh these are too cute. I love my aprons. They do make you want to cook more!

  2. Thanks so much for the shout you two! And so glad you love your retro apron! I have 1 more of that kind if anyone wants one! Hugs Becky.

  3. I like wearing apron while cooking. It will be good for us and seems to be very great look. We can enjoy while cooking.
