When I’m in the kitchen, I tend to cook more like the Swedish Chef (cut to 0:25 for an accurate depiction of my baking) than a cool, calm and collected Martha Stewart. I like to blame our small kitchen for my messes, but I always leave a trail of flour, breadcrumbs or chopped veggies in my wake. Needless to say, aprons and towels are a must. I normally go with something classic or striped, but these hilariously funny French tea towels from WorkShop are right up my alley. It’s hard to get too upset about a fallen cake if you look down and see that cartoon Frenchman saying “Allo Allo!”

In addition to these fun tea towels, WorkShop has some great homewares, like a London tray by Swedish designer Maria Holmer Dahlgren and the handmade wooden bowls below.
