Apronisms: Pocket Wisdom for Every Day

With features on CBS's "Sunday Morning" and NPR's "All Things Considered," EllynAnne Geisel raises the apron to cult status. This little book asserts, "You can never have too many aprons or too many memories." Apron anecdotes and aphorisms merge with quotes, photographs, and memories to offer down-home-spun, no-nonsense wisdom that is tinged with humor. For ultimate giftability, the book's case wrap mimics fabric.

I know all my friends I'm making aprons for will love it, when they discover this darling book in the pocket Doraine Robertson

Wonderful Gift

This is the perfect gift for those who need a reminder of "the good old days" or just a message of taking time to enjoy the small things. I put one of these in the pocket of a homemade apron that I gifted to very special friends at Christmas time. It really made the gifts extra special.

A renewed interest in aprons!

I've worn aprons for more than half my life. As a child, I had a cute little half apron to wear when helping my mother in the kitchen. More than 20 years later, barbecue bib aprons became part of our outdoor cooking paraphenalia. After ruining a few pieces of good clothing while cooking, I began wearing aprons to prepare and cook all food at our house. When I got my first copies of Geisel's vintage linens and apron books, I was fascinated by the thought that ordinary kitchen linens had become the subject of books and people were buying these books and commenting on them. For me as so many others, it is the nostalgia that these books evoke, an opportunity to revisit and remember simpler times when I didn't have to worry about when went on in the world. I've given these books as gifts to my friends who also like to remember the carefree days of our youth. I now have an embroidery business and my favorite designs are recreations of hand embroidered designs from the past - many found in these books - that women painstakingly embroidered in their spare time on towels, sheets and clothing.

A Darling Little Book Full of Wisdom

This is a darling little book. I bought The Apron Book, also by EllynAnne Geisel and it's a real jewel. This book is a jewel as well. Very cute indeed. I love all things retro and kitch and this little book is a great reflection of retro wisdoms and cuteness. I am planning to buy several for my special girlfriends who love retro stuff too!

Love My Sweet Copy of Apronisms

I bought "Apronisms" and just love it. I think it makes a wonderful gift tucked into an apron pocket. $5.99 is comparable with other similar books of it's size. This book has a wonderful texture and I love the graphics and the sweet "thoughts" that are incorperated in this darling little book. I have both Apronisms and The Apron Book by author Ellyanne Geisel and I look forward to seeing other books by this author.
