Ha ha, just found this and had to share, it’s a tea towel from Materialistic and it just about sums up how I’m feeling after spending several hours cleaning my apartment yesterday… Well here’s my thought of the day….


Wouldn’t this make the cutest housewarming present? Here are some more pretty things from Materialistic that you may also like…

    Oh know, I can’t believe it – I was just putting together a post about this range of tea towels! I thought it was ideally summed up my feelings towards spring cleaning.

    Yeah! That “Housework Sucks” towel is hilarious! And what a pretty font it’s written in! Maybe they should make an apron too :)

    I love the teapot and spoons one! Teatowels get quite a battering in my home (small baby etc.) so I think I’m better off sticking with cheap multipacks for now…

    I can’t think of a more appropriate towel for housework! And for it to be so well designed is icing on the cake.

    I used to have this naive idea that I would put amazing music on and that housework would be therapeutic…but then I moved into a house without a dishwasher in the same timeframe as suddenly hosting many more bbq’s/afternoon teas and playdates….and now I feel like my life revolves around the kitchen sink.
    I need this tea towel to flick at my husband should he ever make comments about how I’m not all that great at being a ”housewife” (I’m on a work sabbatical to focus on art/parenting).
