Moo Monday

I'm very excited about these awesome Marimekko tea towels that I got last week. Here is what the website says about them, "The large square cloths are rigid when dry but soften slightly when wet to allow you to scrub any surface from tile floors to dirty pots and pans." Eeek! There is no way these beautiful cows are going to be scrubbing disgusting pots and pans. These little guys are getting framed and put up on the wall! Maybe in the kitchen? Or they could liven up my office at work.....

They're designed by Miina Äkkijyrkkä and I got them at FinnStyle in downtown Minneapolis (http://www.finnstyle.com/kevatjuhla-tea-towels.html). The store clerk told me that this designer lives in the city of Helsinki is getting evicted because she lets her cows run loose. I don't know if it's true but it's a funny story.

I'm not sure about the single one, but I definitely like the large mass one.
