I found these wonderful embroidered towels on Amazon Handmade.

Jessiemae does personalized and customized machine embroidery in a lot of different patterns. I love these!

The towels are not hand made. They are 26″ square flour sack towels with hemmed edges and a corner loop. Jessiemae pre-washes them, so they won’t shrink and pucker if you use them. Continue reading

I am in love with this Chinoiserie Metal Boot Tray. It is by Home Furnishings by Larry Traverso. It isn’t part of a collection or anything. I can’t find that he has anything else with a Chinoiserie motif.

Chinese Garden Stools

Fifteen years ago, maybe more, I saw a little Blue Willow table made out of ceramic at TJ Maxx. By the time I thought about it and decided I couldn’t live without it, it was gone. And I have repented ever since.

Every time I see one in a picture on someone’s porch, I wish I had bought that when I saw it.

Well DUH! There is nothing you cannot find now. I went on Amazon. It’s just a matter of choosing the one I want.
