This vintage apron is made from what I think to be the best Christmas novelty print ever. Not only are the 1950s colors fantastic, just look at those reindeer.
Several years ago I decided to forego the traditional red and green decorations, and instead began searching out vintage blue and aqua things. While finding vintage ball ornaments in blue is pretty easy, I was stymied when it came to finding textiles such as tablecloths. I do know there was an aqua Christmas tablecloth made in the 1950s, because I’ve seen it and its hefty pricetag on etsy and ebay.
But I was lucky to find this apron. I’ve seen a lot of Christmas textiles, but I’ve never seen any other this whimsical with these colors. I know some of you readers are mid century collectors, and I’d be interested to know if you have ever encountered any textile items that are similar.
The apron goes nicely with my snowflake glasses, even though my photos make the apron look too blue.
I don’t collect, nor do I wear, aprons. I bought this purely for the textile design, just like I bought the other five aprons in my possession for their textiles.
