Vintage Tea Towel Tuesday

Here's today's tea towel, it's one of my new favourites

Lamont tea towel, made in Ireland, all pure linen (durr! it's Irish) and fast colours.

I reckon Frank Sinatra was on the money when he said:

"orange is the happiest colour."

Don't you?

p.s. btw, Frankie also said:

" alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy"

hmmmm...not so sure about this one, but his comment on orange was definetely on the money. It is an exciting and beautiful colour.

Longue vie a`l'orangeie!
