The Cat’s Meow

Last week while  I was perusing all the items at Fish Eddy with Caitlin we both stopped to admire some vintage looking dish towels. We both thought they were rather darling and I thought it best to share since I’ve been hooked on them since then.

Enter Cat Studio they were inspired by vintage souvenir pillows from the 30s and 40s. The put the prints on dish towels, pillows, aprons, tray, totes and drinking glasses.

Here are some of my favorites:


I was born and raised in NYC right by the South St. Seaport and Financial District so this dish towel would definitely be coming home with me.

Now I live in the suburbs of NYC so I would also need this one as well:


Plus how chic would this one look in a beach house (preferably one I will one day own):


If you twist my arm I would also enjoy a summer home here:


At only $20 a pop for a dish towel I would happily purchase as many as I like and use them in the kitchen, frame them and even make some toss pillows!

They make toss pillows as well, but for the $149 price tag I’ll take a dish towel and either some spare fabric or a cloth napkin for a backing and make one myself!

I see a Christmas wish list with an Alabama and Texas dishtowel in my future! Thanks for the link those are so awesome. You should tell some stories about growing up in NYC it seems so cool coming from someone that grew up in a rural Alabama town of 3,000!

Great minds think alike! My mom bought these pillows for me and my sister a few years ago for Christmas - Boston and New York, respectively

I have the Atlanta pillow and a collection of their juice glasses. If you can, get into the gift shows. I bought mine wholesale and it was a fraction of the retail price.

I love these! Did you see the ones in Julie and Julia? So cute. I am interested in seeing what the pillow would look like if you would make one with a dish towel. How fun that you got to meet Caitlin!

Had to tell you --- just, finally, got the shoes here in KL and OMG I LOVE THEM!!! They are the most comfortable sandals I own, hands down. Immediately threw them on and haven't taken them off yet. You're the best! xx

I just saw this pillow at a store here (with WA on it) and totally loved it too. Being an ex-New Yorker and at heart, I think I want the New York one though.

I have three of the dish towels- one for each of the three states that I have lived in. Idaho, Mississippi, and Alabama. I love them.
