A new tea towel to love!

Frances in California e-mailed that she would like to send me a gift, and I thanked her and promptly forgot about it until a surprise envelope appeared in my mailbox one day. When I opened it, I found inside what is absolutely one of the most delightful tea towels I've ever been privileged to own!

The drawings on the towel look hip and contemporary, and they're quite different from the tea towels I usually see. I was especially impressed that whoever designed this included a tea infuser. This artist must be a tea drinker!

The detail on this piece is simply amazing. Look at the fringe and turquoise thread stitchery here. Cool, eh?

And finally, even the little hang tang with a teacup was just a charming touch. This piece is proudly displayed in my kitchen right now--though I do think I'll whisk it away the next time I make spaghetti or something else messy. This is too pretty to sully!
