All the popular girls have tomato escorts

world's finest tomato escort service

Yeah, I know my titles are getting weirder and weirder. Maybe it's the heat? Out of nowhere, it is 89 degrees in Manhattan. To give you a clue of how this feels, I haven't moved in about 20 minutes, I am drinking an iced drink and I am still sweating. In places that don't seem like they should sweat.


In any case, back to the transfers!


This gem was donated to me by the lovely Robin - it's a set that is cut but looks complete - 4 motifs for tea towels say "Breakfast", "Lunchtime", "Teatime", and "Dinnertime." Also a "Glasses" towel and a chubby-cheeked tot with an immense dinner knife that says "Silver."


And finally, my favorite, which I've included above - a horrified girl being escorted by a carrot with a cane and a jaunty tomato who tips his hat at her. (I removed the carrot to conserve space and somewhat lessen her psychological damage.) Two smaller potholder designs - a cross-stitch teacup and a big, sweetly smiling tomato. Thanks Robin!

So happy to find your site! You have so many lovely transfer patterns!! My grandmother used to embroider sets of tea-towels for church bazaars! I do not know what happened to all her patterns. One of my cousins must have them. But I do have a few of the tea towels she made.

lol I live in Queens. The building managers choose when the AC gets to be turned on. Apparently not yet! I was dieing from heat right along with you girl. So glad the heat broke! And I can breath again!

not sure if I'm posting this twice, apologies if so. What's with my love for animated foods? And why are all the foods always so happy? I picture them with pitch forks and mean faces when I get a belly ache or when I get on the scale. Could you design any "angry" foods? Ha ha...j/k. sorta. Thanks for sharing happy foods!
