Welcome to Zetta's Aprons

My grandmother Zetta Devey was a hardworking woman who raised her children during the Great Depression.  She had a practical and no-nonsense attitude toward life.  Life during the Depression and World War II taught her to "make do, or do without."  She taught me many important skills like ironing pillowcases, making a bed with hospital corners, putting a quilt on the frame and how to can peaches.   She wasn't fancy in the least, but I never saw her without one of her feedsack aprons trimmed with rick-rack.  When I saw that photo of her sitting high on her horse wearing an apron and a big smile, I just knew I would dedicate this blog to her.

I love that picture of Grandma. I don't think I have ever seen it before. She wore the bib style aprons and Grandma Gray wore the 1/2 aprons. They are the reason I love aprons so much. This is going to be a great blog!xxxxoooopp
