My husband and I went shopping at Half Price Books this weekend (love that place!) and I found something so great that I just had to share!
It's called "The Apron Book" by EllynAnne Geisel and it is so fun! I've seen it in regular bookstores before, but I rarely buy books at full price so I was so excited to see it turn up at Half Price Books... and in like-new condition!
The book is full of memories, stories, old photos, recipes, tips and most importantly, pictures of tons of lovely vintage aprons. Now, a year ago I might not have looked twice at this book, but my new-found love of fabric and sewing has prevailed and this along with my love of vintage and history made this book impossible to resist.
There are even patterns for sewing three different styles of aprons - and the patterns in the envelope in the back of the book have not even been opened! I can't believe someone could buy this and then sell it at Half Price Books. Must have been an unwanted gift... well, it's wanted now!
I've only read a couple pages, but this book is so lovely... can't wait to read more! Be sure to check it out!
Hope everyone is having a nice Monday :)
