Pinecones and Birch

Pinecones and Birch

It’s Autumn in the great State of Maine and it’s about as beautiful as it gets here. The weather has been amazing.  The vibrant foliage has been holding on,  delaying their inevitable disintegration. The sun shines brightly during the day providing just enough warmth to keep us from complaining.  In the evening, we fire up the wood stoves and put on our wool socks.

In the kitchen, our summer linens are switched to the deep brown, pine cone themed linens. These 100% organic  tea towels are made in Maine and are handprinted by the talented ladies at madder root.  We love the minimal design of these towels blending modern with woodland.

Another home favorite that blends modern with woodland is the Birchware Tumbler. Created in a small studio in central Maine by Elizabeth Radliff, the cups were inspired by the graceful birch trees that surround her home.   These ceramic cups along with the rest of the birchware collection is truly unique dinnerware that embodies the functional elegance of Maine.

You can find  both madder root’s 100% organic linen tea towels along with Minka’s Birchware collection at Minka.
