I love this take on a Retro Look but with a newer twist
This come from Life Buoy Soap Ads, check this one out
Images of the Past had some pretty kewl images with some lovely Retro Ladies in Aprons
Here is one of a Military Navy Man in the Galley cooking away white a t shirt and half tied long apron. After doing some research (and one of my navy boy pals might correct me) I found this was general attired down there in the galley because it was hotter than heck and below deck.
Trying to find some Retro Themed Aprons was a difficult task actually. Not a lot of pictures taken back then. I did however find you can find some kewl sewing vintage patterns online that have a retro feel
This one was from Pinterest Vintage Patterns
Here is another one
From Clothing I Want
Here are a few other Nineteen Hundred images of some Retro Ladies in Aprons
This one is funny
I leave you with this last image of a lady wearing one of those SMOCK aprons mostly used for laundry and cleaning at those times.
I hope to make my housecleaning and utility aprons a BIT more fun than these!!

Wednesday What Not: Tips and Tricks for the skin
I see you questioning now. Tomatoes are great for the skin. Have dark spots or blemishes? Cut up a tomato, rub it on your skin, let it dry and then rub it off. You will be amazed at the results!
Watermelon is good for your blemishes, so eat up plenty of this health fruit. However, if a blemish has surfaced rub a piece on your face and let it dry. You rinse of the watermelon and the blemish will begin to go down in size.
It is all the rage and does some amazing stuff for your skin and hair. Drink it up for the best results. It will make your skin glow and your hair soft and smooth. One interesting thing about coconut water is that when you drink it, it cools you from the inside out. This will help you stay cooler on those hot July days!
In the summer, my skin gets dry from the summer heat. Nothing is better than mixing a cup of buttermilk into your bath. You will feel the difference immediately and what girl doesn’t enjoy a relaxing bath?
Keeping skin Healthy
Don’t forget that you should try to protect your face. The skin here is sensitive and the most noticeable area for wrinkles to appear. Try a fun beach hat.
This hat is $14.99 at Target and well worth the cash, if you ask me!
Also, coverups are nice to keep your skin sun free and help transition into lunch on the beach!
This too is available at Target, but many options are available to you.
Please! Please! Do not forget your sunscreen. There is no need to damage the skin.
Of course, do not forget your fun flare at the beach. Trisha Trixie designs has nautical earrings, shoes, scarves and other flare to build up your ensemble. Thinking of having a picnic on the beach Trisha Trixie would love to custom design an apron to match your suit!
This week we are going to focus on everything and anything Nautical!!
