Vintage nana apron

Check out what I found for 50 cents at the op-shop:

I feel like it was my grandma's. It must have been someone's grandma's. It is just right for even the most reluctant of housekeepers (me), keeping that environmentally-friendly but quite-white-and-smeary baking soda off my front when I'm giving the bath a scrub. The pockets are such a simple way to cart about a dust cloth or clothespins or little bits one so often finds scattered throughout the house. Yes, it's a bit worn out; I prefer to call that "pre-loved." The enjoyment and functionality I get from it far outweigh the investment.
For 50 cents, it's hard to go wrong.
