Handed Down

Y’all cannot imagine how absolutely thrilled I was when Honey’s mama (affectionately known as JuJu) handed down this vintage patchwork Lilly Pulitzer apron handmade by her late mother many moons ago.  It is in pristine condition and the love and care that went into making it is evident.

I truly couldn’t love it more and it makes me want to do a little happy dance every time I tie it on.  I had the great fortune of knowing Honey’s grandma for a few years and adore having something so fun and so ME to remember her by.  I imagine she never dreamt that her youngest grandson’s wife would be wearing it one day…



  1. I know some do not care for "hand-me-downs" but why can be so meaningful! Maybe you can wear it for St. Pat's Day?

  2. Judging by your past posts, you are a Lily fan, so how amazing that is. That was sweet that your mother-in-law picked you to receive it. One day you may have a daughter-in-law who will be as thrilled to receive it. ....just saying!

  3. Awww I love the sentimentality behind that apron! And how pretty and cheerful!!

  4. Family treasures are the best!

  5. I love things like this! Such a beautiful design and the colors are gorgeous.


  6. so sweet!!! love Lilly!!! :)

  7. Don't you just love Lilly Pulitzer designs? What a find and how generous the gift was! I treasure both hand made and past loved gifts, they are the best!
