 Vintage Pat Prichard Merry Christmas Tea Towel

None of these are mine, all from eBay, just admiring them from afar. Which ones do you own (if any)? Which ones are your favourite? Do you own any vintage tea towels?
The Pat Prichard is my favourite of the lot, but I also love the lettering on the 4th tea towel. 

We're in for some nasty weather this weekend, anyone traveling to see family for the holidays - stay safe!

  1. Virtual collecting, good idea. Easy to store. Better to stay home safe than venture out in bad weather. Its supposed to snow in my area all night and tomorrow so I am not going out either.

  4. One of each please other than the last one, I'll take two of that one! I don't have any vintage tea towels. I should probably do something about that!

  5. Love that last one.Best time to pick up one of your own is after the holidays. People tend to donate their "old" stuff to make room for the new stuff. Thrift stores told me that they are getting prepared for the after holiday rush. I cant wait!

  6. So love all vintage linens, but especially Christmas! I'm lucky enough to own a Gruen angel and 2 Tammis Keefe angel towels. Finding that Pat Pritchard is on my bucket list, lol.

  8. Can you believe that I don't have any authentic vintage tea towels? What is wrong with me?! I did pick up a really cute repro set of ornament printed dish towels at Ikea this year. They will have to work, I guess.

    Happy Holidays, Jordan!!

  9. I have two vintage christmas tea towels but they are different then the ones above. I have had to put a freeze on buying tea towels unless they are super cute!

  11. I have NO tea towels. Now I will be obsessed with finding some! Shara at Monkeybox had mentioned a facebook group she had found that's all about vintage Christmas - it's called Merry Kitschmas, Go check it out. Someone was showing a tree skirt with pixies embedded in it and I thought of you! Lots of fun vintage Christmas lovers on there.

  12. The tea towels are so pretty! I agree with you- the Pat Pritchard towel and the "banner" towel (the 4th one) are the most special!
