some days when Mr Sun won't shine
and Mr Blah seems all around,
i am thinking it quite nice
to have a reminder of how to 'perky up' the day.
now some may say
"how Tif, could a tea towel possibly perky up my day?"
and usually i would be inclined to agree,
although saying that,
there are so many tea towels
out in 'tea towel world' doing a grand job at cheering up a nest or two.
however this perfectly peachy pair
of over sized tea towels are tres clever,
not only do they have the ability to 'perky up'
a corner of your kitchen with their pretty looks.
but they are also handy dandy
at reminding us of how to live the 'dottie angel' way
yes indeedy, several months ago
whilst rummaging around some boxes in our garage
i came across my granny's old exercise book.
this chance encounter resulted in a 'ta da' moment of the utmost kind.
the results of my 'ta da' moment being the
dottie angel do's
1. do have high hopes
2. do follow the righteous and goodly
path of thriftiness
3. do think you are most peachy perfect
4. do feel a little crafty at least twice a day
5. do wear your slip peeking out from
below your skirt
6. do embrace all that is granny chic
and give it a forever home
this pair of sweeties would be perfectly at home doing the dishes,
hanging around on a wall looking pretty
or being used to make a cushion or bag.
they do not mind which you do,
they are just happy if you are.
all this grand tea towel fabbiness
was made possible by two spiffy folks.
folk #1. my soul sister Debbie and partner in businessy things such as this
(yes 'tis true, we are now 'ltd')
she wore her little 'business cap', the result being,
these lovely quality tea towels are printed in Old Blighty
and wrapped nicely in yarn,
ready for their new homes.
folk #2. my long time cyber buddy Francesca Iannaccone
from Mrs Eliot Books,
who so kindly saw what was inside of my head
and made the design appear!
i am a mega fan of Fran's lovely work
and was totally delighted when she agreed
to collaborate with Debbie and myself.
lots of other nitty gritty stuff about the tea towels
can be found in the description of them in my little shop.
i must tell you, i am pretty delighted
with the results of our first 'dottie angel ltd' product
and in thrilling 'part two' if i maybe so bold,
even bolder than today
i will be sharing a little 'how two'
for making this peachy pair into cushions and a laundry bag.
i know this to be bold,
because as i tippity type,
i have yet to actually make them into cushions and bags...
she has high hopes, she has not counted her chickens before they hatched ~ Tif
