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.
