From a German farmgirl of WW1

After Pie Day '09, I recieved a note from one of Pino's followers, Kirsten in New York. She had two aprons she wanted to send for the Apron Gallery.

What is so touching about these is they came from her Grandmother, who was rasied on a farm in the WW1 era, before emmigrating to the US in 1928. Grandmother Erna was a wonderful baker, and she actually made the Christmas apron. She lived to be 98 years old. Kirsten thought it only fitting that the apron spend time on our farm before finding a new home.

I love this! I love that these objects have stories of love behind them. Oh, I'd love to talk to Erna and hear about her life on the farm.

Thank you, Kirsten, for sharing these. They are both special. And greetings to Esme and Doug.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
