Old Rosalie Tea Towel

A Vintage/Beach/Chic style is what I have running constantly through my head at the moment, after purchasing my lovely new tressle dining table last week, Im looking to match some furnishings and some worn out looking fabrics,  So whilst I had a spare minute over the weekend I cleared out the kitchen draws, delving in and pulling out all the old spoons and serving cutlery that I was probably looking for all last summer at various bbqs and entertaining events,  And there neatly folded away in the corner was my old favourite teatowel, just the thing to get me into my vintagey style mood. 

This Beautiful Rosalie fabric from the UK, the first teatowel I had ever made, and thinking about it, probably the only one I ever made, now almost 8 years old. 

I popped it into the washer and gave it a nice dry on the line, and hey look, a gorgeous vintage teatowel, shabby chic by all accounts, faded but still looking remarkably chic!!

My old favourite
I dont usually have pink around the house these days, I left the shabby chic movement in the UK, but as some of you will know, it is one of my fav colours, and im going to incorporate into my beachy style dining room.  I  will now just leave this lying somewhere looking good with its faded roses and worn out print.  Maybe on the shelf with some old vintage teacups and saucers I collected years ago.  Ummm now off for some more rummaging in the cubboards, Im on a roll.

Susie ~ just loving that fabric.
