Vintage Pinnies – A New Obsession

September 29, 2013

At what point does something become a collection? I used to have one vintage pinny, then two, and now I have four. That counts as a collection right? I din’t mean to start collecting them, but they are so pretty and appealing and go perfectly with a 50s housewife look.

I like that they are usually handmade and have such pretty details, practical things should always be pretty.

I picked up all four at car boot sales all for under 50p so my investment in the collection so far is not huge.

I will probably enjoy them for a few months and wear them around the house before passing them on to a new home.

The pinnies were photographed over one of my favourite 1950s dresses.

    So cute! I love the wonderful fabrics and prints. And your dresses are great, too.

    Loving the collection, as a fan of them also it’s so easy to get carried away with buying more. Like the top one with lace on the pocket, may take that idea!

    My word, these are marvelous! As I’ve been known to tell my husband a time or two over the years, I really think that all one needs is two of any one category of things to have a budding collection, so four aprons certainly counts as a collection – especially when they’re as vibrant and beautiful as these.
