Anthro Inspired Dish Towel

Ok honsetly who doesn't love Anthropologie?
 It's pure adorable! But oh man those prices are hard to stomach.
I will be honest I do own clothes from there...
 clothing and a few decor items also.
 Wait Wait Wait before you jump to any unfair judgements,
 everything I own was either a gift or bought with a gift card (so bascially a gift)
I love they way they make such unexpected things beautiful in ways you would never think to.


I also have a love for vintage linens!
I'm not sure what it is about them but I just find them so beautiful.
All hand done, so sweet and chamring.
Maybe it was a book my older sister got me while she worked at a book store in college.
or maybe it was my mother in law
 who loves all things vintage and has an antique collection that is huge,
or maybe it was my love of crafting and creating.
Probablly all three!
 I can't help but wonder what the women who hand sew'd it was like,
what her life was like, if we would have gotten along,
all she could have taught me!

But back to Anthro, behold this yummy dish towel...


But honsetly who pays $22 for a dish towel??

Behold my version



I whipped this baby up in twenty minutes while waiting for Teen Mom 2 to start!
(don't judge you know you watch it too)
I've never been afraid of color, so black was def not going to be happening!
I love mine! 
It's bright and cheery and perfect for spring.
 I plan on making more in different colors!

Like? Dishlike?
