A Modern Day Ironrite to Keep Your Vintage Christmas Aprons Crisp and Pretty

Guess what I found??? A modern day Ironrite! Remember my post with the instructional video showing how to use it? Well, now you can use all that knowledge after Santa brings you your very own Miele Rotary Iron. Santa will only have to shell out around 2,000 bucks but you’re worth it! AND he’ll get his boxers nice and crisply ironed along with all your table linens. You KNOW Martha Stewart’s housekeeper has one of these things.

One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season is to visit the Williams-Sonoma store and drool over all the wonderful kitchen and household goodies. Yes, it’s a bit embarrassing to be followed around with a mop because I want it ALL, but I don’t care! This year, I’m not sure I’m going to get to actually visit the store due to having dual knee surgery so I perused the online catalog with a sponge at my chin. Not quite the same, but … I digress.

Vintage is all the rage – I always wanted to say “all the rage” – and you can see newly made (quite often in China) “vintage” aprons in malls and mega-stores like the ones at W-S.  While I obviously love W-S, I want to take a moment to remind you to shop for true, REAL vintage!  Many times, you’ll find the real deal is less expensive, even with shipping, more well-made, and real vintage is almost one-of-a-kind!

Wouldn’t you rather give (or receive!) one of these darling, real, TRUE vintage Christmas themed aprons?
