Splash Splash!

here is a really old piece of embroidery that i used last year to make a sewing machine cover.  i had been holding on to it for a long time and then figured if i would just finally use it, i would have it out to look at all the time.

and then look what came in the mail last week:

brand new pillows and hand towels in red embroidery from:

Pottery Barn!

who woulda thunk it?!

i still like mine since it is vintage and embroidered with different colors but it does remind me of the new series Portlandia, on IFC, which is gut-busting Hilarious, with a capitol H, and in which there is a "put a bird on it" skit that will make you pee your pants! 
just sayin, "put a bird on it!"
