This woman has the heart of a lion and a soul of a saint. EllynAnne Geisel (find her on Instagram as Tie One On Day and EllynAnne, or find her on Facebook as Apron Memories and Tie One On Day) shares her homespun wisdom with wit and grace. We went into some fascinating places and time after time she took us back to love. She was always kind enough to officially take on the herculean task of finding me a soul mate. This show was shear joy for me.
Special thanks to Miss Priscilla for putting the two of us together.
In her own words… “My apron journey began in 1999 as a curiosity: Was I the only one who felt a connection to the old fashion symbol for domesticity and the women who had tied on that symbol as part of their daily domestic armor? That curiosity turned into a grassroots movement of apron love, revival, recollection and reinvention, all of which continue to enrich my life.

Who knew there was so much to love about aprons?”
