As I get older I have come to appreciate the loveliness of...aprons! Yes, really, aprons! They can make a dreary day fun with their bright colors as well as be very practical while cooking, cleaning and/or dealing with the kids. I found this adorable little book which would make the perfect gift for the apron lover in your life.
EllynAnne Geisel, an essayist and apron aficionado, celebrates the spirit of the men and women who wore aprons through her traveling exhibit, Apron Chronicles: A Patchwork of American Recollections, now managed by The Women's Museum (Dallas, TX), a Smithsonian affiliate. Her passion for aprons can also be seen through her inventive vintage designs for her company, Apron Memories. Her aprons have been featured in the Wall Street Journal and worn by Bree Van De Kamp of the Desperate Housewives television show. Retail price $5.99
