Dear Helen Hartman
Spring is around the corner (or so the calendar tells me, the view out my window says differently) and the urge is upon me to do a little Spring cleaning as soon as the season arrives and I can throw open the windows and freshen up my house.
Would love some helpful hints for getting ready for the big clean up.
Dear Loved One,
When Helen gets such an urge she takes something for it… usually a nice long tropical vacation. Of course, Helen’s idea of spring cleaning is to haul a winter’s worth of empty wine bottles to the recycle center and kick last season’s man friend to the curb. (If wisdom is born of learning from one’s mistakes, then I like to think of my life as one big learning annex). But like most things in life, if you must clean, you should make every effort to look good for it. Nothing can help you do that like a vintage apron.
|Love This 50s Girly Girl - note she always dressed for the chore at hand - and so perfect for the housewife who might forget what she needs to do each day!|
|Speaking of Handy - Grandma's Apron comes with pockets for glasses, Cigarettes, Tranquillizers, tissues and Grandpa's money. Ah, that grandma, what an operator - makes you want to kick up your heels and dance, n'est ce pas?|
|Gorgeous fruit print and Fruit men!|
|Perfect for the housewife hot tomato! Or the dancing pots and pans!|
|These two are just lovely and new w tags and minty.|
Below are the bib styles I adore - In the Dog House Again? A form fitting veggie print, an
adorable tropical print and an apron top I could totally see on Millie Helper, the Petrie's neighbor in the Dick Van Dyke Show, over a black and white striped shirt and black stretch pants with ballet flats.
Hope where ever you are there's a spring in your step and remember (seen attributed to many people): If you can't be a good example, then serve as a terrible warning. But, please, loved one, try to look good doing it!
