My Favourite Tea Towel

One of the things I got for Christmas was this tea towel1:

My mom gave me – and a whole bunch of other people – this tea towel, which was designed by my sister’s friend Saskia. As you may recall, my dad was a pigeon fancier2, so every time I watch into my kitchen and see that pigeon, it makes me smile.

If you are so inclined, you can check out more of Saskia’s designs at Baited Hook.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go make a cup of tea!


  1. OK, not that exact tea towel, as that is actually a photo I stole off the Baited Hook website, because I’m lazy and it’s easier than taking a photo of my own tea towel and uploading it []
  2. That’s a fancy word for someone who raises pigeons. Get it – ‘fancy’! []

  • LOL! He didn’t “fancy” pigeons. He was a pigeon fancier. Totally different.

    Incidentally, the British are big into pigeon racing, so they would probably know what a pigeon fancier is.

  • Well you can tell yourself what you want, but if I’m a comic book reader, that means I’m someone who reads comics. Ergo, your father fancied pigeons! Because English is a totally consistent language like that, especially among the British.
