..."Mum ..MUM...MUMMM...What on earth is this??!!
Tut, bang the door is thrown open.."MUM...!"
One of my children appears at the bathroom door, a look of disdain on their face, an arm outstretched with one of my new 'face cloth' held between their thumb and index finger.
"Ah yes, I see you've found one of our new face cloths." I reply, bracing myself for the reaction.
It came. So this vintage find hasn't been welcomed with open arms. That was to be expected.
"Well," reminded Anth, "how many other people have lace around their face flannels?"
"Yes but if you look at it you will see it is actually ric-rac sort of made into an edging, it's not officially lace. It's so clever, just look!" I say.
He briefly looks. Now you have a look - I bet you appreciate it.
I found about 6 of assorted sizes. Oh yeah, guess where? Yep, Totnes in another box! So, it's not just our tea towels that are trimmed with lace it's our face cloths too.
Now, I bet even Cath hasn't done that!
