This recent batch delights me on so many levels. Aside from wonderful, rich color there's an array of glorious texture here too.
This is a piece of a woven tablecloth that I picked up for a smile at a yardsale. There was a burned hole on the corner. You can't see it in this photo but the raised cords were colored thread that bled during the dye process. It shows better in the paler pieces but this cloth loves the dye.
Do you think they ever imagined what could become of such prosy things?
Even the 79 cent towels I picked up at IKEA the other day didn't disappoint. I wasn't even sure they were cotton.
it's Dutch for "towel" ..it too has the trixie little hanging loop like the one above.
No small wonder that the majority of these treasures came from grace.
