Apron Appreciation

We love vintage aprons!   So when I ran across a news article displaying a string of charming vintage aprons strung on a laundry line, I delved in and discovered a fellow vintage apron aficionado, EllynAnne Geisel of Pueblo, Colorado. 

She's on a campaign to showcase the nostalgia of vintage aprons, gathering stories of women who once donned aprons as "domestic armor" and whose families now treasure their kitchen memories.

Her site, aptly named Apron Memories, is a delightful cache of apron memorabilia, including Geisel's books, videos, an apron shop and more.  There's a special Victory apron pattern available, and Geisel even has a traveling museum exhibit called Apron Chronicles.
