I recently saw a collection of the most beautiful cushions made from vintage tea towels……you know, those beautiful Irish linen ones that were too good to use in the kitchen?
So I’ve been on a mission to find some. The only criteria it has to meet is that it has to be unused and it has to be good quality. This is what I’ve found so far…
And the top image is one you’ve already seen in ‘Cushions for a wine bar’. What I love most is the depth of colour……and the linen is a dream to sew.
And I love the 1950s housewife feel……..yes….you heard right……..embracing the feel of the 1950s housewife……complete with pretty apron, pearls on while cooking the vegies, high heels and perfectly coiffured hair (and 16 inch waist that only comes from all that beautiful home cooking). Oops! Gotta run….family stirring…….need to reapply lippy and find my pearls……where’s that other stiletto??????
