We’re taking you on a little flash back to circa two weeks ago when we received a fun package in the mail from Kelly at Eclectically Vintage. She surprised us with these lovely antique spoons she etched by hand. Actually I think she used a stamping kit…but you get the idea.
We love that they add a little decor to our garden and we’ve been showing them off at every opportunity.
Her thoughtful gift was part of the Pass It On Project which goes something like this: One blogger chooses two other bloggers to gift a handmade something. And those two bloggers choose two other bloggers to continue the tradition and so on and so on…until the world is cured of hunger, smog is only a distant memory, and we finally understand the true meaning of world peace. Okay, maybe not, but it sure made us happy and we’re excited to “Pass It On” too.
We decided for our handmade item, we’d send our blogging buddies a little something for the kitchen. Last Christmas we had an Etsy store and had a fun time making these dish towels from vintage fabrics and laces. We had so much fun making them that we figured it’d be the perfect gift for us to send on.
Our first towel was sent to a very funny Janel at Hating Martha. We chose a black towel with white lace to go with the black accents she’s got going on in her kitchen. We actually named this towel the French Maid, it seemed appropriate. How many of you name your towels?
Stephanie from Crafting in the Rain received (unless the postman stole it, which is a total possibility) a neutral brown towel with some of the prettiest vintage lace we could find.
We hope you enjoy these as much as we loved making them, and we’re excited to see what fun items you decide to pass on!
If your interest has been piqued by this fun project, there’s nothing stopping you from creating a chain all you own – grab a button and join in!
Heads up, we’ve got a giveaway planned for Friday that will make your Mother’s day shopping a breeze if you win!
Please join us the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month for the
