I am not much for buying obvious souvenirs when we travel. I like to buy something that reminds me of our trip but doesn't scream...."I bought this on my trip!"
Thistle is a cute shop redolent with "foo foo juice" and lots of very fun stuff.
I fell in love with this tea towel.
I knew it would be the perfect thing to mat and frame for the kitchen.
I have a frame that I use to switch out seasonally.
This is so fresh and summery.
I had a piece of orange mat that was a nice border for the bright vegetables. I used spray mount to give the towel a smooth application to the cardboard backing. The only thing that took time was the fact that this frame is one of those pains to take apart and put back together. But it went pretty quick to change it out. Now I have a reminder of our trip every time I walk by.
It has a lot of impact for less than $20! And hey....when I get tired of this....I can always take it out of the frame and dry some dishes!
This project would be so easy to replicate....
Here are some more tea towel inspirations for you.
Then head to the thrift store for a frame....and you too can have some pretty and inexpensive wall art.
Have A Wonderful Day!
