Horses & Aprons & Fairs (oh my)

This is just a post about 3 random items...

#1: Horses) While driving today my daughter and I passed a farm with this unusual horse. I've never seen anything like it... and I've been to 2 county fairs and a football game!

It was just gorgeous. What kind is it??

#2: Aprons) In my recent garage saleing I've been lucky enough to find lots of aprons. Here are a few pictures of my finds. I'd like to tell you just how many aprons I now have in my collection but then someone might report me and I would end up on the show "Hoarders" and I'd have to cry on TV and it would all get very ugly...

This organdy apron and the "Mod" one above were 10 cents each. My kinda garage sale...

This one was a quarter and is very similar to the one my Grandma Anna used to wear!

I paid $2 for this one and I love the "sweetheart" neckline. It is homemade.

Daughter #1 found this one for me for Christmas. She embellished it with eyelet lace.

Daughter #2 purchased this one for me on line for my birthday. I love the little girls with their umbrellas!

But this one is my very most favorite apron that I wear most everytime I cook. It is a Mother's Day gift from my MIL I received a few years back. I love the lime green color and the flouncey skirt at the bottom. It is so feminine.

#3: Fairs)

I'll bet you don't have one of these festivals in YOUR town!
Happy Memorial Day!

Have a great week, Kathy
