Picked up this cute apron template at the Stampers Sampler.
Inspiration from a decade is our theme today at 365 Cards. I know the 1920's was the choice, but I opted for 1950's since I lived it. Plus, that is what inspired me !
I recall Sputnik's trip into space, and a Russian boy in my classroom who knew everything about it. Didn't have a tv until about 1958 or so. My dream was to go to Disneyland, and I watched old Walt shamelessly promoting it on the aptly named show "Disneyland" week after week. I saw Queen Elizabeth when she was a young woman, in our very own city, Vancouver B.C., at a tattoo (a drum/bagpipe military event) in her honor.
Mostly from the 50's though I remember the smell of poverty. It will stay with me forever.
I made this card in honor of my grandma, who wore an apron every day of her life I think. This pattern is exactly what she would have chosen. The ribbon and buttons may be a bit fancy for her taste - but I am sure she would have kept it for a "good" apron.
