Will and Kate Forever

Ok, I will admit to not following all the knitty gritty details of the upcoming nuptials of the Royal Couple but how often do you really get to have a royal wedding?  If I had the day off I would totally be glued to my tv to watch the whole procession and revel in my inner 7 year old’s wish to be a princess (yeah I was that girl.) Here are a few towels for all of us “grown up” princesses.

I think this towel says it all- From Taylors Type

If you go for something more subtle and reserved this crown print is jolly good- from enormouschampion

Strap on your gloves and make sure you have your mouth guard ready for the throw down!- From the Screen Prince- Luke James

Just in case it wasn’t clear why she is marrying him- From Who Did This

Time to break out the celebratory packet of Digestives and toast the happy couple with a Cuppa!

Will and Kate, truly, all the best.

Spring is Here!

There are so many little green things sprouting up in my yard (only to be eaten by the chickens) and when it is not raining the sun is out and the weather is lovely, Spring is definitely here. The birds that live in the lemon tree outside my kitchen window never seem to stop making a rukus this time of year. Here are a few towels to help with the spring cleaning.

Add a bit of retro spring fun with this pretty blue flower towel from Sweet Harvey.

This little guy is probably not likely to show up in your tea cup but he is very cute. From Design Kitty.

These two are as twitterpated as the birds in my tree! Not sure which I like more the towel of that cup. Design by New Leaves Studio.

Now, what I want to know is what is your favorite spring time tea? Leaves us a comment and let us know!

This Place Needs Dusting!

We are still here though things have been rather quiet. The holidays were very busy and we have barely seen each other (Libby and I) let alone done much blogging. We hope to fix that soon though and bring you reviews of a few other tea spots soon. Mean while there are always towels right?  Here are a few we scoped out in the last couple months.

Hand Woven Towels from milka-Loom– Bright geometric borders make me want to break out the Fiestaware (if only I had some!) and host a brightly colored tea party.

Fantail Bird Tea Towel from Melina Martin– I am sure you have noticed that I like bird prints, this fun detailed print of the New Zealand Fantail is no exception. Now if only her Hey Diddle Diddle pillow came as a towel!

Kitchen Conversion Towel from Sweet Fine Day – I love the graphic on this towel, not to mention how handy this would be when baking as the measuring cup I want always seems to be in the sink.

Today I also have a recipe recommendation for you. Over the holidays I made these Smocky Bacon Ginger Cookies after reading this post over on Pork, Knife and Spoon.  I love Shauna’s blogs, there is always something yummy to try out (even if you aren’t gluten free). My mother-in-law didn’t even give me the option of taking the leftovers home they are so yummy.

Well, time for another cuppa, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween!

The Great Pumpkin is stirring, preparing for his rounds on Sunday. So in the spirit of ghouls, witches, vampires and pumpkins of course here are some fun towels to help celebrate.

The Pumpkin Harvest- From Sara Parker Prints– I would like to go pick out a pumpkin here.

Cameo Skull – From Brilliant Trees Collective– I love cameos, what better for Halloween then a creepy skull cameo!

May you have a wonderfully spooky holiday!

Puttering Around the Kitchen

Well, we survived the wedding and the crazy week of family. It was great but we are very glad to have come out the other end and have a bit of calm. We have been puttering around the house and kitchen eating lots of leftover potato salad. So here are some great towels for when you are just puttering around the kitchen.

I love my mixer, maybe it deserves a tribute towel. – The House of Bouton

Two Weeks

We are down to the wire here with the wedding and party only two weeks away, hopefully after it is all over I will have more mental energy for other things, like you know blogging.  For the moment check out my two cake posts over on on my blog Tesseract Cloth. These are both yummy and go great with a cuppa.

Gluten Free White Cake– for the recipe go here.

Guinness Cake – for the recipe go here.

Where did the time go?

Yikes, where did the time go!? Sorry I haven’t posted in a bit, I have been a bit busy rushing around getting stuff together, my BF and I have decided to make it official and legal this July and now there is a lot to get done between now and then. Of course I haven’t stopped searching the web for great towels, I just haven’t had time to make a real post.Now the invites are finally ready to go to the printers so I can breath for a minute and write this post. In honor of the reason I have been so busy I give you these great towels:

One ring you won’t lose to the garbage disposal. From Artgoodies

I did the dishes last night AND I made dinner- It’s Your Turn! From McCheek’s Mayhem

Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer do!
I’m half crazy,
All for the love of you!
It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage
But you’ll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.

We will go ‘tandem’
As man and wife,
Daisy, Daisy!
‘Peddling’ away
Down the road of life,
I and my Daisy Bell!

From Girls Can Tell

Happy Tuesday!
