This vintage tea towel was purchased at a fruit stand where I went to purchase some peaches! In the back of the shop there are several booths where people can bring antiques and second-hand items to sell on consignment.
This tea towel is interesting to me for many reasons. I really like the stamped cross-stitch design and the colors used for the embroidery. I always think it's so interesting, though, how these vintage tea towels frequently have designs that don't quite blend in color with the woven pattern in the towel. This tea towel features rose and peach colors in the design with a light orange stripe in the towel! And a yellow green and dark green leaf pattern with a turquoise woven stripe. It creates a unique and one of a kind product, that's for sure!
