I am in the mood to give something away.
I’ve been thinking about it for a while but I wasn’t sure what to give.
Then I was ironing pretty vintage kitchen towels and I thought, “Hey, I know! A pretty vintage kitchen towel!” Because I’m sure you all share my dishtowel jones, right?
But which towel?
That was easy—this one.
It’s vintage. I wouldn’t want you to settle for anything less than vintage.
It’s pretty. Fresh and unusual colors on a bright white background, all in crisp linen. Yum.
It’s unused and clean. Because I wouldn’t want to send you a towel you might consider icky.
It has flowers, for the gardeners, and tulips and daffodils, for those experiencing spring and those already longing for it. And the flowers are turquoise because, even though turquoise flowers are rare or non-existent in nature, they shouldn’t be!
It’s an all-around perfect towel! I hope you think so, too!
To get a chance to win the towel, you can encourage me to do a chore I’ve been avoiding.
I need to find out how many of these yo-yos I’ve made so far.
I’ve been avoiding this chore because I have a notion of how many yo-yos I will need for even a twin-bed-sized coverlet and I am loathe to acknowledge how far I have to go. I just haven’t been able to bring myself to count them.
So, I’m asking you to guess how many yo-yos I have in this pile and jar. In a week, after you’ve had a chance to guess, I will HAVE to count them so I know who to send the towel to!
The fine print:
- I’ll accept guesses, in the comments here, until noon, my time, on December 6.
- Anyone, in any country, can guess. This towel is willing to travel!
- Only one guess per person.
- In the case of correct ties, I will do a random draw of those who made the correct guesses.
- If no one guesses correctly, I’ll send the towel to the person with the closest guess.
Please make your guess and encourage others to guess, too–this towel needs an excellent home! And I need to get busy making more yo-yos . . .
