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!

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.

This handy towel is great for those days when you can’t even remember how to boil an egg- From You Say That You Love Me.

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

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:

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!

Spring Back Giveaway!!!

This week is my favorite week in the whole year, the return of Daylight Savings time on Sunday, no more darkness at 5:30 pm! Hurray! I don’t know why they make us change it in the first place. And then of course the 20th is the first day of spring. Kate of the Nutfield Weaver, the maker of wonderful handwoven towels and wedding accessories has agreed to give away one of her towels.  Very appropriately the towel is called “Herb Garden” and the colors where inspired by her love of garden.

I recently got another of Kate’s towels and I must say I am very pleased with it, it is well made, a nice size and looks great in my kitchen.

To win the towel leave us a comment about your favorite things about spring or what your favorite spring time tea is.

The winner will be picked and posted on the 19th, just in time for the first day of Spring and Kate will mail the towel directly to the winner.

Happy Spring!

Heavenly Handwoven Towels

Libby and I both enjoy weaving but until recently neither of us had our own looms set up and working. I thought it was time for something other then just screen printed towels so here is some handwoven goodness for you:
