Fast Colours * Made in Czechoslovakia * All Pure Linen *
I was so excited about showing you this tea towel, it is really lovely in the flesh, much nicer than you'd think from this pic. I know the camera never lies, but in this case it's telling fibs (big fat ones!) and that's no lie.
Let's see if a close-up is a little more flattering...
Hmmmm? not really (we're of a similar vintage so I know how it feels...)
One of the special thing's about this t.t. apart from the beautiful linen it's made of (in unused condition, still with its original sheen) is that it's signed and dated. HK 1967. I don't know who you are HK, but I love your work.
For something completely different, check out the gorgeous t.towels Donna sent me as an extra bonus with her Jubilee Swap parcel (more on those goodies another day...)
Donna likened them to 70's swap cards and I reckon she was spot-on, don't you?
Donna lives and breathes the 70's - you really should check out her blog. Her Freaky Friday posts are hilarious. So bad they're good.
In fact this hair style
reminds me of the mushrooms on those t.towels!
(I know there's a photo of me with a "do" like this somewhere, I have to hunt it down, just might submit it for Freaky Friday Donna. Now that would be F-r-e-a-k-y!)
p.s. I was only twelve, so I can blame it on my Mum!
