2014 Tea Towel Calendar

A new contest at Spoonflower called the 2014 Tea Towel Calendars Contest has begun.  This year for my entry I created a Dala horse design. After I entered the contest it was brought to my attention by a very talented designer at Spoonflower named Rhonda Designs that 2014 is the year of the Wood Horse in Chinese Astrology.  I thought that was so cool and such a great coincidence.  

I have always loved Scandinavian artwork and my design was also inspired by a post from a blog that I love to follow called Silver Shoes & Rabbit Holes. In this post Danzel writes about her trip to Lindsborg, Kansas also known as Little Sweden U.S.A. If you would like to read her post and see her fabulous and enchanting pictures of the festival she attended that inspired my design please click on Midsummer's Festival! Let's Pretend to Be Swedish!  She also has two other fun posts to check out titled St. Lucia Day in Kansas and Happy Midsummer!  If you have never heard of Silver Shoes & Rabbit Holes before you must check it out! Your inner child will be glad that you did! :)

Here is my tea towel design titled 2014 Horses & Birds.

  1. It's a lovely design! I voted. And thank you for the link-up! xoxo

  2. Just love this Tara! For some reason it reminds me of my Grandmother's house. Bright and cheerful, welcoming. I really love the bag. It reminds me of a quilt I had when I was small. WOW, I just remembered that. I know I still have it in storage. It is blue on one side, and red and white on the other side. You got my vote, and I wish you well in the contest!

  3. You bet Danzel! I truly love following your blog! Thanks for the vote! ;) Sheila, I love that it reminds you of your Grandmother. That makes designing this all worth it to me! Thank you for your vote and your wonderful support too! :)
