My scheduled co-host for today, Miss Kitty, is busy enjoying the sunshine for this first sunny weekend we have had since November! No kidding! Sooo…I will just let her enjoy!
As soon as I saw this You + Me towel on Pottery Barn’s web site, I knew that would be my next project! It must have been popular because it has already disappeared!
And I knew the embroidered look would be easy to imitate since I had already tweaked a French monogram alphabet that I found at The Graphics Fairy! I just cropped out and combined the letters that I needed. I have reversed it here to be used as an iron-on transfer. Just print the graphic and follow the directions on the package to apply it. (I used Avery brand transfers for light fabrics.) I used a super-inexpensive tea towel from IKEA so mine is not exactly like the one on the Pottery Barn web site….but it sure was cheaper! I already had everything I needed so mine was free!
And here it is! It will be a fun addition to my Valentine decor…and I love the vintage look! And…if it looks familiar…
…it is because I used the same monogram and IKEA tea towel for my DIY vintage French linens! I love this idea…creating a vintage look without having to spend all that money!
And just in case you missed it, here’s my rustic farmhouse Valentine wreath…just the right amount of a Valentine feel without being too cutesy for me!
And here are even more fun ideas for Valentine’s Day…including several pillows. And if you know me, I am sure you have guessed that even more pillows are on the way…so stay tuned!
