Vintage Tea Towel Cushions

Have you been to Brimfield?  It is a HUGE antiques fair in Massachusetts that happens three times per year.   I find the place utterly overwhelming and without a plan of attack, a day there exhausts and puts me into a state of utter mental overload.   I attended the most recent fair with a plan for Leaf Magazine.  We have a story in our upcoming first issue about trends that we saw there.   So with a mission in mind I was ok for most of the day to stay focussed andpurposeful.

But that meant that personal shopping was out of the question.   I think it is an extraordinary mind that can go to a place like Brimfield and actually be creative and imaginative in the face such excess and stimulation.  Personally, I need a list (a tool with which to focus) – which I am starting now for the spring visit.  It will include vintage linen tea towels — because I just plain love them, but also because I think that a cushion collection such as these:

vintage tea towel pillows

are the perfect kind of pillows for my garden chairs, or the chairs of a porch… or really lots of places.

(these were  found via Steph Bond at Bondville and were created by Morgan Wills — there are still a couple left for sale at her site)

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
