During the 4th of July Holiday we traveled to southern Wisconsin and found ourselves in several antique stores.
There I spotted it - something I had been searching for - the perfect gingham apron - with Rick Rack! Do you remember Rick Rack?
It was 'recently' made popular during the "Little House on the Prairie" television series in the 1970's. When I was in grade school I had rick rack on several skirts and loved the simple detail.
I will be wearing my awesome apron in my farmhouse kitchen when baking. I can't wait!
There is something very special about items that when we see them, they elicit warm memories from our past. In this category for me are my breadbox, cowgirl boots I wore as a child and my father's Army dog-tags. Such different items, same warm feeling inside.
What items bring forth warm memories for you? Is there a way you can incorporate them into your daily life?
My sister-in-law does an amazing job of synthesizing old, memory filled items into her decor. When I am in her home there is something innately comforting in every room.
What a wonderful gift to give to yourself and others. This week-end find one special item, dust it off, bring it into the light and place it in a position of honor where you will see it daily - and smile!
Happy Friday. xoxo Katherine
