1920s Mother's Apron Strings ~vintage Hall Brothers


This sweet greeting card for Mother's Day was copyrighted in 1927 by Hall Brothers, Inc. Made in USA
Die~cut in the shape of an apron with real cotton gingham apron strings

blue, pink, and yellow, as well as golden details~like on the hankie ruffle.....

the front reads,

"TO MOTHER'S APRON STRINGS"





inside you can see the die~cuts that allow the "apron strings" to be threaded through........


and the most adorable sentiment........

"Tho' Life has taught us all to prize~

Both Lover's knots and friendship ties~

Today my heart it's homage brings~

To honor Mother's Apron Strings

Not more than half a yard in length~

Yet Oh ~the uncomputed strength

Of those dear ties that bound us to~

The good~the beautiful ~the true

The sheerest lawn or calico~within thier warp and woof~ I know

Fate wove the fabric of our dreams

With ideals stitched in all the seams

And so the faith that sanctifies

In later life~All human ties~

Is threaded on the love that clings

To Mother's binding Apron Strings"

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
