Park Designs has expanded their braided rug line with four new sizes and patterns. Made of 100% cotton tape, these rugs offer rich, vibrant color with thicker padding. As durable as jute, they are easier to clean and dry quickly. They are reversible for added use and durability.
In addition to the standard 32 x 43 inch oval size, Park is introducing three additional sizes of rectangular-shaped rugs. The 20 x 30 inch accent rug is perfect for the back door or in front of the kitchen sink. The 27 x 45 inch can be used for accent needs or by larger doors. In the case of larger spaces like entryways, under the kitchen or dining room table or in front of the fireplace, the 4 x 6 foot area rug provides a great solution. The 30 x 72 inch rug runner three circle design was inspired by an antique rug found in rural North Carolina. This new braided rug line coordinates with placemats, chair pads and other linens in the Park Designs braided tabletop collection.
The braided tabletop collection coordinates with the new floor coverings. Made of 100% cotton, these original Americana designs offer an authentic flair reminiscent of yesteryear, but in today’s popular color palettes. Braided tabletop linens include an 8 inch trivet, 15 inch placemat and circle table runners in 34 and 54 inch lengths. All linens are reversible for added use.
Line Dried Linens is a proud distributor of Park Designs products, another North Carolina home furnishings business. New Park Designs rug and tabletop patterns available July 2013. Also look for new hand-hooked rugs in July!
When you were a kid, what was your favorite item? The one thing that never left your side? A blanket? A stuffed animal? That one thing that gave you comfort, no matter how filthy it got? My brother had this thread-baren teddy bear that would fall apart and I would sew it back together. Maison Chic designs fun and unique security items for babies and children that comfort them in their formative years.
Blankies combine the plush of a stuffed animal with the security of a blanket. They are colorful characters made of soft, snuggly material. Pint-sized for your little one.
Travel pillows fit gently around your little one’s neck to provide a comfortable resting place for tired little heads. This product makes traveling in the stroller or car seat comfy and fun!
Multifunctional blankies are made of soft fleece. They have tabs of varying textures and two teething rings to occupy babies and toddlers.
Tooth fairy pillows protect dental treasures until the Tooth Fairy can exchange them for money.
All Maison Chic products meet or exceed US safety standards for children’s products. Their security plush are designed in collection for layered gift giving. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for a nap. Where’s my blankie?
When my son was small, I was certain I would never eat at a restaurant that didn’t have coloring placemats again! But he was happy, occupied and it passed the time while we waited for the noodles and cheese to arrive. Now AMPM kids has expanded on this great idea with the chalkboard placemat. On one side a coated, wipeable surface and on the other, a wipeable chalkboard. The placemat even comes with a package of 12 assorted chalk sticks! Pack one in the car for travel, take one in your kid’s backpack for overnight stays at Grandma’s house or keep one in your tote when going to a grown-up resturant. It’s a clever, inexpensive way to promote your child’s creativity. AMPM also has matching coated art smocks to continue creative fun at home and school! Who knows, you could be nurturing another Van Gogh (just keep them away from the cutlery)!
As a victim of identity theft, I wanted to make sure I protected my customers while they shopped at www.linedriedlinens.com. I use PayPal and Google Wallet (formally Google Checkout) as the “bank” for my credit card transactions. By using these two reputable programs, my customers can know their personnal information is safe while they shop online. I never see my customer’s credit card information! I only ask shipping (address) and contact (phone and email) information, so I can reach them in case there is an issue with their order.
So how can an online consumer know if they website they are shopping on is secure? Look in the address bar when you go from the shopping page to the purchase page. The “http” in the address bar will change from “http” to “https” if the site is secure. The “s” actually stands for secure. So if the address does not change when you are on the money page, don’t put in your credit card information, because the site is probably a scam.
We all work hard for our money so be smart when you shop. Look for the “https” secure address in the URL and protect your credit card information! She works hard for the money….so hard for it Honey….she works hard for the money so you better treat her right! Thanks, Donna!
Tea towel is the English name for dish towel. They are kitchen towels and usually a more generous cut than what we Yanks call dish towels. Tea towels are made of cotton or linen or a combination of the two renewable fibers, instead of a cotton terrycloth or cotton polysester blend, as used in dish towels. Tea towels are used for drying dishes, covering hot food or teapots and drying hands in the kitchen. Some also consider them a collectable item.
There are several advantages for using tea towels over dish towels. Tea towels are usually lint free and leave dishes cleaner after drying (no fuzz). They are also thinner and made of all natural fibers so they dry out faster. And, as with many household items made in the UK, they are smaller when folded, so they fit into the drawers better. With space at a premium, you conserve it where you can.
As a child, I remember visiting my great Aunt Biddie at her lake house in northern Wisconsin. She collected everything; puzzles, wrapping paper, you name it, she had it! Her collectioning probably orginated from going through the depression, as we tend to see with many of our older relatives. I remember she had a collection of calender tea towels. This was a popular collectable item at the time. Each towel had the whole calender year printed on the front, often with animals and flowers of each season surrounding the individual months. Now everything from recipes, to our favorite animals and flowers, to humourous sayings can be found on tea towels. And with that in mind, I think a nice cup of tea is in order. I wonder if I have any scones or biscuits… Thanks to myrecipes.com for their scone recipe!
