For Christmas this year my mom gave my cousins, sister-in-law and me some very special gifts. These aprons were worn by my great grandmother about 70 or 80 years ago and now they are getting a second life with us!I am amazed at the detail she put into making these very functional pieces of every-day life beautiful!
It inspires me to start looking at the things I use every day in a different light. Why not break out of my quick-and-easy, use-it-and-throw-it-away lifestyle and create beauty around me?
It may take some extra time, but beauty created is never in vain. My efforts may encourage those around me to use their God-given talents to inspire others and fan that little spark of creativity in them.
I'll bet my great grandmother never guessed that her aprons would cause such a ruckus, so I'll just leave you with one more and step off my soap box now!
