weekly wrap up + flag conversions tea towel

It’s always great to see companies collaborating with some of our favorite independent artists. West Elm just paired with Shanna Murray on this new Flag Conversions tea towel that is not only cute, but also super handy to have around the kitchen. Shanna’s towels have a sweet ribbon pattern that helps you convert common measurements for cooking or baking. I’m always getting food on my phone when I Google this kind of info, so these towels would definitely help me keep things cleaner. You can pick them up for $9 right here. You can also check out a delicious fruit butter recipe from Saving the Season that goes with the tea towel. That sounds like the perfect thing to make for weekend breakfast at home. Amy and I are heading to Connecticut today to check out some thrift stores (I need a new armchair, fingers crossed), so I’m signing off. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you on Monday! xo, grace

    These towels are super cute. Great graphic quality and lovely photography too. As a transplant to Europe from SF, it sure would be great to have them with conversions to Metric as well!
