Is It Possible to Love a Towel?

What do you think, is it possible?

I found this towel last week at Anthropologie.

anthro towelAnthropologie is not a store that I frequent as there is not one close by.  So, when an opportunity presented itself I took it

In the above picture you can tell it is pretty, but let me show you a close up.anthrotowel2The details are embroidered.

Love.

Now, it was a splurge.  But I figure I am better splurging on a $24 towel than a lot of other things that could get me in trouble!  Plus, it is hanging on my stove and just makes me smile!

I am sucker for embroidery, always have been.

But lately I have been seeing more of this technique of embroidering the details on a patterned fabric.

It has me inspired to maybe try something myself.

Oh, and since I am gushing on towels, check out this lobster

anthrotowel3and Shrimp one.  Seriously?  The lobster and shrimp are crocheted!

Love. Love. Love.anthrotowel4I imagine you might start to see some embroidery showing up on my Pinterest page.

Have a great night!

  1. Oh my goodness, that first towel is SO cute! I think it’s definitely worth the money, you’ll be looking at it and enjoying it everyday. Buy things for your home that make you happy!

  2. I just bought that first towel three days ago! Almost yelled at my husband when he grabbed it to dry the dishes. It’s so sweet and adorable!

  3. I love it.
    I have many hand embroidered bed, bath, kitchen and table linens. Many of the pieces I have are so beautiful and finely crafted. In my mother’s time and before, young girls were taught needlework. My dad learned crocheting and tatting from his Gramma. He showed me too. I think some of that would still be enjoyable for girls( and boys) if interested even now in this too fast world.
    Machine stitching and embroidery just is not the same. There is a human touch like nothing else with hand crafted items. Thanks for your lovely example, something to enjoy.
