tea towels

rockmelon recycled scored lots of scrummy tea towels to sell at the Suitcase Rummage this Sunday.Standing unmoving and oh so serious as the English guards do so well,  is this guard in all his finery.

Don’t you just love the frilly collar!

and this sneak peek is celebrating our beautiful Barossa Valley.

Have you seen Suzie Stanfords work?  Look closely to see what all the fuss is about.

 Who would have thought tea towels could look so amazing reborn as upholstery!

    Wow, I can’t believe the transformation from tea towel to furniture upholstery! You are one creative lady. I’ll be excited to see your set of books that you recently scored too…..
