Birthday Tea Towels

I celebrated another birthday during the week (it happens!) and had a lovely day. I was showered with home made cards and kisses from my children, along with a new camera from Tim (and kisses from him too of course!). I also enjoyed a birthday lunch with one of my dearest friends. We have been friends since year 8 and continue to enjoy one anothers company. She surprised me with these absolutely adorable tea towels. Her gift was soft, flat and squarish, so as I was unwrapping her gift I was sure it was fabric. Well it was fabric - just not the quilting cotton that I thought! I was absolutely delighted!! They are all linen - most of them Irish linen to boot!
Look at the eyelashes on the donkey (they remind me of Eli's!)!

How cute are these Christmas angels?

I always have some cooked, mashed pumpkin in the freezer (for pumpkin pie - canned pumpkin is not readily available in Australia. Besides, the fresh stuff is sensational!), so I think some of Flo's pumpkin scones will be making an appearance this week!

Flo Bjelke Petersen was a member of the Australian Senate and the wife of Queensland's (a state of Australia) longest serving Premier Joh Bjelke Petersen. As the tea towel suggests, she was well known for her pumpkin scones!


  1. Ooooh..... they are all just so adorable!! Love them all, though I particularly love the Holly Hobbie little girl. Aaah yes..... Flo and her pumpkin there's is a blast from the past!! What a lucky gal you are!!

  2. Happy Birthday!! What an awesome gift!! All those tea towels are very cute and fun. I'm tempted to make pumpkin scones now. :)

  3. Hadn't noticed the eyelashes until you mentioned them!! How cute!! (but didn't all your children have long eyelashes??)


I love to read your comments and will always endeavour to reply. Thanks for visiting - I am truly delighted!
