If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’re most likely aware that one of my favorite things to do is peruse thrift shops or flea markets whenever I get the chance. I’ve become very disciplined with my purchases ever since I laid out some ground rules for thrifting earlier this year. So difficult, but so necessary! Only buying items I have a definite plan for has really kept the clutter in our basement storage rooms to a minimum.
With that being said, I was thrilled to stumble across a couple vintage tea towels at a local thrift shop last week. I have been coveting similar Anthropologie dish towels, but we’re far to hard on ours (think overflowing coffee maker like the one I experienced this morning!) to spend in the ballpark of $20 each. Instead, I picked up both of these for $3!
The “Scottish Wild Flowers” cotton tea towel was created by Glen Appin, a Scottish textile and gift company dating back to 1903. I love the summery colors and simple illustrations of some of my favorite flowers.
