Our Lists: Tea Towels

by Cat on May 18, 2010

by Designing Mom Guissell of Earthy Beginnings

I’ve been longing for a dinner table since the day my son graduated from a high chair. I envision all the pretty things I would place on it, besides food of course! In the meantime, I have noticed this surge of linen and cotton tea towels as of late which I find pretty cool. Below are just a small collection of tea towels I’ve been admiring from afar… until I get that dinner table that is!

1. Falling Leaves Tea Towel by Madder Root

2. Ray of Light by Inklore

3. Queen Anne’s lace towel by Inleaf

4. Suppertime tea towel by MrPS

5. Red-backed Wren and Wattle by Formosa Design

6. Assorted Tea Towels by Hammocks & High Tea

7. Squid Linens by Squid Ink Kollective

8. Creat A Set (Owl) by The Heated
I’d like to add that I have seen the Hammocks & High Tea and Inleaf ones in person and these are high quality towels worth every penny!!

by Designing Mom Jackie

1. Keep on schedule in 2010 with this limited edition letterpress calendar created by Erika Firm of Delphine. It comes hole punched at the top with a piece of grosgrain ribbon for hanging display. Each month has a different original illustration, including a sweet baby elephant, baby giraffe, california poppy, little lamb, and florals. The month section is easily trimmed off, leaving you with twelve gorgeous letterpress prints when the year is through! To buy, head on over to Delphine’s online boutique.

2. This 2010 calendar combines Cat Seto’s love for stylin’ office products with an eco friendly mission. The 12 different illustrated months are printed on 100% recycled PCW, chlorine free papers. It comes with a reusable wood block holder made of reclaimed lumber which has a place for your stray pencil. And you can mail back your used pages to our studio where we will recycle them and give you a coupon for next year’s refill packet! Check out Cat’s etsy shop for more details.

Our Lists: Doe-C-Doe

by Cat on November 19, 2009

by Designing Mom Tori

I simply love Gina’s photography of Doe-C-Doe . I think her work would be fabulous in a child’s room or playroom (she actually has a lot of work that grown ups would like for any room of the house as well) Who can resist her still life portraits of barbie shoes, matchbox cars, and other small toys that have been so loved by children over the years?

Have fun browsing through her Etsy shop and Flickr account . The good news is that she is willing to take custom orders, so If you see anything on Flickr that you want to purchase, just convo her through Etsy and she will make you a print. (Talk about great customer service…)

Be sure to check out her blog as well – she has lots of vintage embroidery patterns and free pdf downloads – I especially love the downloadable vintage children’s book illustration tags.
