What a Perfect Week!


Vintage linens are so irresistible! When I find something good, I can't pass it up--even if I don't need it.

Just how many sets of daily tea towels does one gal need? I'm pretty sure the answer is, "At least one more."

That's what I told myself when I found this wonderful set at an estate sale.


I love the heavy-duty linen fabric with its bands of bright color. Many of these sets are created on plain white flour sacks. This set is extra charming with its bold stripes, don't you think?



The embroidery is impeccable and matches the stripes nearly perfectly.



And so, the week is done.



Make it a great day!

  6. Love your tea towels! Oddly enough, that's how I spend my weeks. It is very satisfying to see my life in/on fabric.... Truth is I have cabin fever ... I'm thinking about dusting. Still those are cute towels. Happy December.
