"Ties That Bind" Shower

What better place than a church shower to bring out the collection of vintage aprons I have been storing away for many years? Seeing as I have aprons from my Mom and other relatives, have been given aprons by others, and have browsed the thrift shops I now own plenty of sweet aprons! Aprons with flowers, ruffles, pockets, embroidery and my favorite of all, rick rack. (Oh, how I am a sucker for rick rack with its jaggy mountain peaks and valleys like one could find on all of Charlie Brown shirts.)

Mike G. - a good, good friend of John's since grade school - is marrying Meghan N. this coming May. The church shower was held in their honor.The old hymn, "Blest Be the Tie That Binds" was a part of the shower theme. Great words and melody to sing as a group. Then, things got a little more peppy with Mariah Carey (on CD) providing the vocals for our Fashion Show. Our oldest models were in their 80's and the youngest was a junior in high school. They did a great job - and Project Runway models better watch out!
Here's the group posing together: Just for your viewing pleasure, the models in action: God's Blessings to you, M and M!

Thanks, Katie and Teddie, for your Facebook comments! It's fun to hear there are others who like aprons, too.
