Fabulous Finds

Fabulous Find: Anali

Do you have a place in your home where you keep little gifts on hand just in case you need one?  We have a closet at home and every spring, we stock it with pretty hostess gifts that will certainly come in handy over the summer season.

Anali Exquisite Needlework

One of our favorite “must haves” when we entertain is hand towels – and not the ones the kids use when drying the puppies’ muddy feet, mind you!  The towels we use are exquisitely embroidered with beautiful blossoms and come in all the colors of the rainbow.

Made in Redmond Washington by Anali (a mother/daughter business like ours!) these linens guest towels are truly works of art.  A design begins as a hand-drawn rendering created with a kaleidoscope of colored pencils and watercolors to accentuate detail and shadings.  The drawing is then scanned into a computer and a special embroidery software program is used to plan each stitch and color change to bring the design to life.

Like in nature, perfection can’t be rushed so each order can take three to four weeks to produce but the result is well worth the wait!  And for those of you who would love to add a little botanical beauty to your home, Anali guest towels will be available on Diane James Home next week…
