Antique Plate Hanger for the Homemaker's Uniform


   
Today I want to show off this cute apron hanger I made for my two pretty pink aprons.  Armed with my hot glue gun, it only took me a couple minutes to put this together.  I just grabbed a pretty antique saucer, glued an antique glass drawer pull to the middle, and glued a pretty vintage-looking button to the middle of the drawer pull.  I glued some ribbon to the back for a hanger and even fixed a pearly embellishment to the nail in the wall!
On it, I've hung this patchwork apron that I won in Connie's giveaway at Living Beautifully, along with a pink apron that I purchased from Mrs. White at The Legacy of Home---she hand-stitched the whole thing! 
I love wearing aprons around the house---not only are they practical for shielding against grease splatters, soap suds, and baby spit-ups, but they also serve as sort of a homemaker's uniform!  When I wear my apron, I know it's time for business and it motivates me to focus on the things that need to be done around my home for my family's sake.  You will not find me sitting here in my bed, snuggled up with my blanket and writing---with my apron on!  Ha!

  1. Sarah, I adore your idea to hang your aprons. I have several and I do wear them. I love to cook and bake.

    You have a lovely family.

  2. Sarah, do not know how you find the time to be so creative. You are one amazing lady. I love that dish you used. I have some vintage aprons, but since I do not cook anymore, never are used. Take care and many blessings for yourlovely family.

  8. Hi Sarah,

    I love the apron hanger idea! I'm an antique dealer, and I have many extra saucers rattling around. I just might have to put them to good use!
