Evident in oil paintings, aprons were worn by peasants in the middle ages. The simple design, a rectangle of muslin folded over and tied in the back, hardly compares to the ruffled, colorful prints worn today, but they are just as useful. Besides protecting my clothing, the apron's skirt helps to carry potatoes from the basement, green beans from the garden, or rolls from the deep freeze. If aprons had a fan page, I’d “like” it.

So this holiday season when you’ve baking cookies, try wearing an apron, and ask your children to wear aprons, too. These two children's aprons are from Williams-Sonoma. Adorable! What aprons do you like?
