My mom's best friend had recently gone to Greece for a pilgrimage. I believe their stay was in Santorini. As with any trip, there are souvenirs to be brought back. I wasn't expecting anything really. I'm just glad they had enjoyable time. So I was a bit surprised when I received this lovely apron. My face lit up with delight when I saw it. It's not too big as I am small person and it's not too small either. I love it!!!
The size is from the torso to about the thigh. It's of a mesh cloth material with an olive-green stitched lining with neck and waist ties, so it's easily adjustable to a person of any size. The design is embroidered and has two large pockets at the bottom. The word Rodos is also embroidered at the center of the pockets. Here's a little itty-bitty geography lesson: Rodos is a Greek island that is southeastern to Turkey in Eastern Aegean Sea.
I'm little scared to use it as it's from Greece, it's brand spankin' new and I don't want to ruin it. I'll eventually come around. Gotta break it in sometime. =)
