you can afford it friday

youcanaffordit

I have a love affair with table linens. When I walk into an antique store, they’re the first thing I gravitate toward, and when Brendan and I got married we registered for about ten times more cloth napkins than necessary. The latest addition to my collection includes antique linens passed down to me from my grandparents, and I’m already looking forward to hosting some fancy dinner party for the sole purpose of putting those pretty things to use. Here are some more modern linens (well, one Vera I just had to throw in) that I’d love to have, all under $40.

[1] colander napkin set, $28 [2] linen tea towels, $28 each [3] banjo love placemats $28 [4] leaves tea towel, $19 [5] Defyra tea towel, $25 [6] acorn towel, $18 [7] tea towel and pot holder, $32 [8] you’ve come along way baby tea towel, $38 [9] vera napkins and placemats, $38

Dovetail Studio

I like ceramics (when they’re done well.  Not my mom’s ceramics).  I like screen printing.  I like bikes and sea creatures.  I like obsessively stocking my kitchen with every cool plate, cup or pot I can find.  Apparently, Margaret and Josh Smith are down with what goes on inside my brain.

Maybe next they’ll be design an Apple Cinnamon Cheerios box that’s also a skateboard, that plays a Son House song when you open it and has a picture of me dunking on Barack Obama on the front, since they’re in the business of combining things I like.

Or maybe they’ll just keep firing white ceramic and printing cool illustrations on plates, vases and mugs so that I can purchase their work and daydream about balling with our Prez while I hover over a Dovetail bowl full of sugary cereal.  That’d be fine.
