Whimsical dish towels, too pretty to use!

Liv, Matt and Asley surprised me with several of these hand screened French kitchen towels from La Provence. This shop is a treasure trove of colorful, fun, and yet very practical, holiday gifts; truly wonderful for the special someone on your holiday wish list that loves to cook and to entertain.

Especially noteworthy are their pure cotton Provence tablecloths, which come as is, or very lightly coated with a virtually undetectable acrylic finish that you can simply sponge clean. The kids spilled red wine on my new yellow poppy tablecloth last night and when I noticed this morning I thought for sure it was ruined. The caked on red wine wiped clean in a second! Anyone who has had linens badly stained by red wine knows this is remarkable.

While supplies last, La Provence is currently offering a free Mariposa gift with a 75.00 purchase of anything Mariposa. La Provence is located at 4 Main Street, Rockport.
