I was going to give it a miss this week, because (in my opinion) this tt is particularly uninspiring (so much so that it keeps getting shifted to the bottom of the pile) Then I decided if I don't get it out there, that's where it will stay...languishing at the bottom of a pile of much smarter tts forever...poor old thing!
And anyway, this year I've decided to post my tea towels as I come across them...so here she is. Taa - Daa! It's finally her turn to shine!
I'm not even sure if it's vintage...I've actually got a suspicion it's a vintage wannabe and not the real Mc Coy. Maybe that's why I don't like it, hmmmm?
I found it at a garage sale with three or four much older "proper" vintage ones. I know its got a bit of age, I'm just not sure how much. What do you think?
I've always loved their little faces
In the language of flowers, pansies mean loving thoughts.
It's funny, because even though I love flowers (and there are lots of pretty flowers on this tt, including a few of my favourites) it just doesn't grab me. Unlike last week's, which I adored (slightly o.t.t. here) Maybe the flowers on this one are just too pretty...
Actually, I think it might be that garden bed in the middle that completely wrecks it for me, it would've been much nicer without it (and those big letters spelling out GARDEN BED! it could've done without those too)
Nasturtiums are one of my favourite flowers. I love the colours and the way their leaves "catch" a single raindrop and hold it there glistening like a little jewel.
O.K. I've given this t.t. her five minutes of fame, and I don't think I'll put her back in the pile after all...I've got other plans in store for her (devious hand rubbing, maniacal grin) she's going straight in the third drawer down where she'll be used to dry the dishes!
N.B. you do know don't you, that in our house, this is not an honour?
your presence soothes me
