I love Pilgrim’s blog and was so honoured when she asked me to contribute some of my thoughts, we have very similar tastes, but unlike Pilgrim I’ve become particularly good at hoarding textiles. Mostly vintage fabrics from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s but also tablecloths, tea towels, vintage blankets and assorted vintage trims and other habby.
I wouldn’t call myself a collector in the strict sense of the word, I’m more of an accumulator. Today I thought you may like to see some of my favourite Linen Tea Towels, found mostly at thrift stores and garage sales. They are destined to hang on my kitchen wall, in frames, if I can find some large enough.
In the past I have used several tea towels from my collection to create children’s clothing for my shop - dresses, pants and baby booties, bibs, quilts and little smocks. But these are just too nice to cut into so on my wall they will live, brightening up our mealtimes.
Which of these tea towels do you like the most?
If you’d like to get to know me better, pop over to my blogs:
I also have a fabulous online shop called Poppet in the Post. It’s full of lovely handmade gifts, quirky bits and pieces from around the world and even some of my vintage fabric.
