My Grandmother Always Wore One

- an apron, that is! This is the title of a beautiful new daily planner by Diane Shink. Diane has shared pictures and a bit of background of some of her favourite aprons from her extensive collection. Taking her cue, I photographed her journal on two favourites in my own apron drawer: one tie-dyed and autographed with fabric paints, the other featuring Sponge Bob Square Pants. Both were Grade 7 Home Ec. creations by my sons. Even though they aren't exactly the caliber shown in Diane's book, they occupy a place of honour in my kitchen. :)
Diane's planner is gorgeous and I know how hard she worked to get this in print. Congratulations, Diane! You can find more information on Diane's site. This makes a great gift...especially if you have a home-made apron to tuck in with it.

  1. What a wonderful idea for a book! My grandmother always wore an apron too, I have one of hers - a lovely broderie Anglaise one, which I suspect could have originally been part of a dress or petticoat.

  2. Aprons are so interesting, I have quite a few myself. What a novel idea for a book.

  3. I love aprons, but I also need them! They have to be bib-style. I am so messy in the kitchen! lol Even just to wash dishes, I wear an apron. : )

  4. My grandmother would definitely love that shoe. She likes it comfortable and stylish. I bought her sneakers and she caused a fit. But she still uses it for the gym. HAHA! I love my granny.
