The Apron Book by EllynAnne Geisel
I bought this book last winter on the recommendation of my friend and former Pastor’s wife, Sharon. She knows I am a rescuer of all vintage linens but especially aprons. I also love to make aprons. This book lived up to Sharon’s recommendation. I loved it. This next week we will be vacationing in Minnesota and we’ll stay a couple nights at Sharon & Pastor’s home. I have made a special apron to take to Sharon to show my appreciation for her. She is redoing her kitchen in a *French Country* theme and I hope I’ve captured that in the apron.
EllynAnne also has a great webpage http://www.apronmemories.com/ and blog http://apronmemories.blogspot.com/. Her newest book, The Kitchen Linens Book, Using, Sharing, an Cherishing The Fabrics of our Daily Lives is one I hope to add to my collection soon. I know I’ll love it also. Anyone read that one?

I wanted to add a postscript to this post. EllynAnne also has another book called Apronisms: Pocket Wisdom for Every Day. I love this little *pocket book*. I bought several a few months back and have used them as hostess gifts this summer...tucked into the pocket of a simple homemade apron. Look for a giveaway here at Faithfulness Farms soon of Apronisms and a cute fall apron (when I return from vacation). Details to come!
