Dear Towel. I love you.

September 7th, 2012

Dear Towel,
I love you.  Yes, love.  Little hearts circled around atop my head when I first spotted you at IKEA.  On the drive home, I glanced a few times to the back seat to see how you were doing.  With every glance I sighed and professed my love.  I love you, Towelie.

Oh Towelie, I know you’re supposed to be a bathmat - but it breaks my heart to just toss you on the cold, cold floor.
Towel love

There you go, Towelie - now I can see you every time I enter the bathroom.  I smile every time I see you.  All the more eager I am now to finish painting the not-my-taste green to the beautiful Clay Bisque on the other wall.
Towel love

I love you so much Towelie that I could pee. Good thing I’m sitting in just the right spot.
Towel love

And now, Towelie… it’s time for you to make some babies!
Towel love

  27. The fabulous dana allegedly said:

    oh my gawd, you’re hysterical! Those damn swedes really know how to perk up a gal, don’t they?

  28. The fabulous Sandra R allegedly said:

    I love this blog. It is so much fun to realize I am not alone in my insane (as it seems to the visually bland) response to fabric/color/patterns. Love Towellette, hope her pregnancy is quick. (Something tells me she will have multiples, a litter most likely)
    I scarfed a dozen or so washcloths from B,B,&B because they were woven in this cool pattern and colors. They are in a box labelled “for inspiration”.

  29. The fabulous Kate Brown allegedly said:

    LOL hope the babies are cute!

  30. The fabulous Jenelle allegedly said:

    Oh IKEA! Your towelie will produce some very good looking babies I’m sure. :) I can’t wait for the big reveal!

  31. The fabulous Sarah allegedly said:

    Haha. Love you so much I could pee. I have a kitchen towel (supposed to be a bathroom towel) from Ikea that I have similar feelings for.

  32. The fabulous liveacolorfullife allegedly said:

    So funny. Love the towel. But I had a hard time tearing my eyes away from the granny squares…

  33. The fabulous Brandy allegedly said:

    Now that’s frickin funny stuff right there. You made my day.

  34. The fabulous KatiKatie allegedly said:

    Oh gosh! Gasp! Soooo funny. Makes me want to run out to Ikea right now! :-)

  35. The fabulous DianeP allegedly said:

    Thanks again, Monica, for your inspiration! Went to Home Goods and bought a towel! No colorful stripes like yours. This one is pale gray and has soft, chiffon flowers at the bottom border. So pretty. Now who would have thought you would inspire someone to buy a towel??

  36. The fabulous Ivy allegedly said:

    You are so freakin’ funny, Monica! And I just love your granny square wall hanging with its lovely hand quilting :)

  37. The fabulous Jen S allegedly said:

    Haaa.What a hoot. I nearly picked up this exact bath mat at IKEA yet instead went for the pastel version of light turquoise and greens. Curious to see what “towel babies” turn into.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
