We are beyond delighted to be joined for A Simple Path this month by writer and outdoor artist (more on that in a mo) Tanya Shadrick.
Tanya is someone whose life and work embody the values of simplicity and slow living. She is both a writer and an artist, finding ways to connect with people in new and meaningful ways through words and her physical presence. We think you’re going to love this interview: read on to hear about how a vandalised tree changed Tanya’s life and career, the lessons she learnt from her frugal, resourceful grandmother, and for her incredibly inspiring outlook on how we can live more connectedly and happily.
Put the kettle on, pull up a blanket – or better still, in the spirit of Tanya, take this outdoors to read under a big sky – and dive into Tanya’s thoughts on slow living, art and family.

Let‘s start from defining what an apron is 🙂 An apron is a piece of garment that is used for protection of our clothes from wear and tear while fussing in the kitchen or barbecuing. It usually covers the front of the body. Linen aprons are very comfortable and easy care option, but let’s start from the beginning.
An apron as a separate piece of garment comes from middle ages. As doing laundry was very difficult these times, an apron was designed to protect a dress from any stains.
