Light in the unexpected…

An unexpected package in my letterbox… a present from a lovely friend, Eileen, who was ordering fabrics for her business, happened to see this tea towel and thought of me.

It’s been a long while since I’ve been able to go back to Abruzzo where Nonno Anni, Granny Maddalena and so many in my family are from, and where I used to buy such tea towels at the local market. So it’s great to add this one to the collection. (I’m guessing some of you may be familiar with these regional Italian linen tea towels!)

I used to carefully put them aside in the linen cupboard but now I use them and it’s lovely to see them in the kitchen each day. Thank you to Eileen for such kindness – it made my day to receive this! xx (Eileen makes cushions in gorgeous vintage fabrics at Touch Wood Design.) Times have been tough for so many lately. I guess I hold hope that such kindnesses, however small, that we might be able to do, can keep giving us some light.

Wishing you a lovely day! Zoe 💛🌻

Sightseeing in Assisi…

Always seems to be a little story happening in scenes from Italian towns.
