brownies, ribs and decorating...

Thought I might start a weekly 'behind the scenes' post. So here goes..

Just got the proofs back on these towels! Two dish towels in a series of how many? Not sure yet. I did these as a birthday present for my friend Erica. It helps me to think of someone when I create something new. I do like these a lot. Both of the recipes are tried and true and are family favorites.

These would make adorable themed shower, house warming or birthday gifts. And it is never too early to start on your Christmas list. You could include the grill dish towel with grill tools for the hard to buy for grillmaster. The brownie towel could be part of a basket of nice sugars, baking chocolate, vanilla, measuring cups and spoons. You can find these towels on Spoonflower. Remember, Spoonflower is a print on demand fabric site. So you are buying the printed towels and will still need to hem them.

After a recent fondue party and seeing this photo I was horrified at all that orange. I use color when designing but I think living with it exhausts me. And I don't even like orange.

A start and already a big improvement. NO. MORE. ORANGE. Plus that black wall use to be green.

It is time for the blue to go too. I have loved these Eames chairs. I bought them 9 years ago at Atomic and they are like new. I plan to use 4 black, mismatched mid-century chairs. I already have 2. It anyone is interested I will probably tackle selling them next week. Craigslist or Facebook Market. First come, first serve if you are in the Madison area and want first dibs.
