A new tea towel from Etsy

For a while there I was finding tea-themed linens at every turn, and then the well ran dry. Nothing on eBay. Nothing at antique malls. And so a few weeks ago, I turned to Etsy and happened across a thoroughly delightful and whimsical tea towel. The creator and seller, Laura, kindly answered my questions and soon had this adorable design on its way from England to the U.S. When I wrote to tell her how much I love this tea towel, she wrote back to say she's getting some of her designs printed onto "homeware items" such as mugs, cups and shopping bags. I plan to check back often because I'd sure love to have more such items with this design, and they'd make great gifts as well.

At the time I came across her Etsy shop, Glue + Glitter, she was offering this tea towel in gray and blue, a bubblegum pink one having (sadly for me) already been scooped up (and they're all gone at the moment, I see). But this cheerful shade of bright aqua blue was one I really liked, and besides, I think Glue and Glitter's designs are going to become famous in the tea world and I can say I knew her "back when." Doesn't this tea tray design just make you smile? It did me.

And this teacup is adorable as well. Some of her tea-themed designs are currently featured on magnets for sale in her shop, and I can't wait to see what else comes from her lovely imagination!


  1. I do like your new tea towel - it is so bright and cheerful.
