Alanna Cavanagh tea towel

It used to be that Pinterest was the main catalyst for most of my impulse purchases. It still is, but now Twitter is giving it a run for my money. Earlier this week, someone tweeted a picture of this adorable tea towel, illustrated by Alanna Cavanagh.

I love Alanna's screenprints, so this little number is a great (and affordable) way to bring her work into my home. This design is a limited edition being sold at The Bay for $14.95 and it's made of 100% linen. I'm not sure if the Saskatoon store has them in stock, but I'll have a peek this weekend while I'm out finishing my Christmas shopping.

As she's a Canadian illustrator and print maker (based in Toronto) it's easy to justify it. I'm supporting Canadian small business! I'm good at finding ways to justify buying things I don't need.
