Item/Description: Unused, vintage ca 1950s-1960s “Days of the Week & Chores To Be Done” Gay Nineties-era illustrations, decorative linen kitchen textile tea towel.
***The wording for each “Day of the Week” (except for “Sunday”) appears inside a picture postcard-style box, accompanied by charming imagery representative of each “Chore To Be Done” on that particular day. Graphic “pins” symbols tack each of these picture boxes to a symbolic “wall” which is actually this delightful tea towel.
The imagery and wording for “Sunday”, rather than also being displayed inside one of these picture boxes, is instead designed to stand out because of what a special day it is (“The Lord’s Day”). Thus, it appears at both ends of this lovely textile, serving as its exquisite borders.
***The graphic imagery representing all of the “Days of the Week” as well as their various and sundry assorted “Daily Chores”/”To Do’s” are:.
*Sunday - A family of six (6) (father, mother, 2 daughters/girls and 2 sons/boys) dressed in their “Sunday Best” reading their bibles/prayer books while seated in church.
*Monday - Clothing and a laundry basket, ready for washing.
*Tuesday - Clothing and an iron, ready to be pressed.
*Wednesday - A bucket of water, soap and a scrub brush for cleaning the house.
*Thursday - Spools of thread, a scissors and a tape measure for sewing.
*Friday - A broom, dustpan and feather duster for cleaning the house.
*Saturday - A kneading/rolling pin, spoon ladle and a completed/finished baked cake.
***Complementary and visually stunning colors utilized are a vivid and eye-catching array of aqua/turquoise blue, teal green, lemon yellow, golden yellow, snowy white and jet black.
