Friday + textiles


I spent the morning with my mom, sorting through old storage boxes.
For those who don't already know, my mom's family is from Guatemala and while I've only visited once, my grandparents have
gone back many times and brought with them lots of ethnic fabrics. I had almost forgotten these woven pieces, I love their
colors. I'm not sure just what I will do with them yet, any ideas?

Some new towels for our bath. They were sent to me from Kn Karen Neuburger and I'm quite happy with them. Both have
washed well and are very soft. I was afraid they'd leave a lot of black lint all over but I haven't had that problem at all. The
only negative-the husband and I don't have our own!

  1. I have some exactly like those, my mom is from Honduras,my father from Spain and we lived in El Salvador
    (right next to Guatemala) for a few years... I love Guatemala, my husband and I traveled around the country quiet a bit, that's where we bought some colorful and beautiful textiles.

    I love your post and your new fabric and everything!

    Big hugs
