I'm going through an Austen stage and it seems to be coming through in my designs - the above pattern came to mind as I read Emma.
From a sketch it soon became a block print. I'm really happy with the results. I'll have the one-of-a-kind tea towel on our Etsy shop tomorrow.
On the weekend, Diana and I stopped by the Yorkville Anthropologie. I really dug the pattern on these candle tins and bowls...
... and fell in love with the spooled candles.
