I just added this post to Sew & Tell Fridays, so if that's why you're here, thanks for visiting and I can't wait to go check out all of the other finishes :)Wrapping up the gifting show & tell, here are some pot holder/tea towel sets that I made. This first one I made for my Aunt for Christmas. I love the colors in these. The pot holder actually has a few of the fabrics I used in the quilt I made her this past summer.
And this set, I made for my dear friend Angela for her birthday! Both sets were a hit, I think :)
I simply love tea towels. I have a nice little collection now and was inspired to show some of them here after receiving this cutie from my sister for my birthday, if you remember.
This one is from Anthropologie, my favorite store ever, although I can only buy things there if they are on super-clearance, or I have a gift card. I would move right into an Anthropologie store if that were an option ;)
This little owl one, from the same place, my friend Jenn bought me. Isn't it cute?? And the chair it's on is the beginning of our mismatched chair collection! We have lived in my parents' house for the last several years while they live overseas and Casey finished school. Now that we're getting ready to buy our own place, (yay!) we have begun to collect some furniture here and there. About a year ago we bought a huge, awesome table when our Pier 1 store closed for an incredible deal and planned on finding a hodge podge of chairs to go with it. We recently scored this one at a thrift store for $2.99!! It's old and cool and in great shape.
THEN, both Casey's mom and aunt had one of these white chairs and gave them both to us! These were made by Casey's great grandfather, I believe. So, now we have the start of our collection. We would love to find a bench to go on one side, so we'll be on the hunt for that soon.
So, since coming up with my chair idea, what do you suppose I saw in my mom's new Martha Stewart magazine?? Yep, this ad. Check out those mismatched chairs! Are we cutting edge or what?? ;)
