Tea Time

As we begin planning for our Portobello Road Pop Up, Meg has created some designs for linen and cotton tea towels featuring English themes. Using illustrations, old line drawings, vintage and antique maps, she creates collages with whimsey and history.

Taking lines from the British anthem, this design is an homage to the Queen. EIIR

This antique scheme for a country garden is the centerpiece on this design.garden path

Taking lines from the British anthem, this design is a nod to Britian’s storied history. the sun never sets

Locally, we have this amazing bird’s eye drawing of Baltimore from 1912, complete with many buildings you will recognize. The original drawing has been colorized for better clarity.smalltimore
