Tea Towels and Wine

I have been driven to drink and am drunk with new idea’s for gift giving.


This gorgeous box holds the secret to my new project.


Stashed away, high on a closet shelf; forgotten for years.

Newly found I discovered the contents were perfect for my new project. A match made in heaven one might say. But first, I did a quick search of the Inglenook Winery for information on the box which led me to their story. It is so interesting, please take a moment to take a look


But back to my story and the reveal of my project.

Inspired by fellow blogger Kathy @


Tea Towels –


Kathy is in the middle of embroidering a set of Dutch tea towels. When I first saw her project I instantly thought of my step mom, who loves anything Dutch – ‘the perfect gift project for her from me’ I was thrilled to find this box filled with embroidery threads. Now to decide on a color palette for my set.




Tea towels, embroidery thread and wine!
