The "Designs By Lynn" Collection
Beautiful Ruffled Edged Pretty Towels - The Kind You Use Just to Decorate!
DESIGNS BY LYNN
These beautiful "Pretty Towels" were often referred to in the Vintage Era as "over towels" to be placed on top of the ones you use for everyday - just to bring a touch of romance to your Romantic Cottage Style home or cottage. Can you imagine these in your Kitchen or Powder Room?
Lynn also designs and creates beautiful totes, checkbook covers, sachets, pillows and other treasures found exclusively at Victoria Rose Cottage.
All items in this collection are original and exclusive one of a kind items. Lynn uses the finest of textiles, trims, lace and hand applied details found only in higher end boutiques. Many of her breathtaking original pillow designs include a quality fiber filled insert that does not bunch up. However, for those who prefer a more comfy, heavier cushy pillow, Lynn can also design pillows using a down/feather insert to meet your decorative goals.
Her many years of experience and exceptional seamstress skills are unmatched anywhere. We feel so blessed to be the only online boutique to represent her incredible talent. Not only does she have a perfect designer's eye but the quality of her work compares to that of very high end designers.
All designs are original & exclusive completed by machine and hand applied intricate details in the United States of America. Please allow two weeks for packaging and shipping to your destination. All prices include shipping and insurance calculated to the United States of America. If you are an International shopper, please contact us prior to purchase so that we may check the customs laws of your country and give you an estimate for additional shipping charges.

I'm a counted cross stitch designer by trade and have published 85 books
of original designs and manufactured many different prefinished "cross-stitchable" accessories
under the name "GRAPH~IT ARTS Inc." designs by Lynn
Two of my stitched cross stitch designs can be seen framed on the wall in the kitschy
movie "OFFICE SPACE" starring Jennifer Aniston too!
I stopped self publishing a few years ago, all of my inventory went to a favorite
distributor and I now have the luxury of working freelance from home for the publisher
Leisure Arts and Dimensions.
They've published numerous publications of my designs
including - 101 BEARS WITH PERSONALITY ,Old Fashioned Fingertips, Santa & Company,
Bless This Child, Seasons of Angels, Cute Kitchen Quickies, and many more.
For Leisure Arts, I've also adapted to cross stitch, the original art of
Sandy Gore Evans, Kathie Ruger, Karen Wood, Suzanne Cruise,
Paula Vaughn and other contemporary artists.
It was an honor to be asked to adapt many LOONEY TUNES, DISNEY
Mickey & Friends, and WINNIE THE POOH designs too! Such Fun!!
I inherited the INCURABLE collector gene from my Grandma Lena and some
of my favorite things are antique Teddy bears, Steiff animals, Fire-King,
Jeanette and McKee jadite, buttons, buttons & more BUTTONS, pretty fabric,
Barkcloth, quilts, 40s CUTSIE cottage pottery, bluebirds, vintage sewing items,
antique samplers & almost anything with pink roses!
I'm old enough to lie about my age and Dave and I have not been blessed with children
. . . HUMAN children that is!
We have always had a houseful of pups and currently have had as many as three 4-legged sons
- all cocker spaniels ~ BAILEY is blind and has the sweetest gentle nurturing soul,
DITTOS is a day dreamer and spends his day watching the squirrels, bunnies and critters
in the yard and then there's BABY MAX! He's my 24/7 shadow and the rebel rouser
in the family ~ always looking for something to get into and helped to keep Dittos and Bailey
forever young. Bailey and Dittos have crossed the rainbow bridge now but what wonderful memories we have of these precious babies - now happy little angel dogs.
I adore Country Western Music especially Vince Gill, Rascal Flatts, Pat Green, Phil Vassar,
Keith Urban and the best of the best ~ my boys ~ Brooks & Dunn!
My favorite hobbies/pastimes are gardening, sewing, decorating, lampworking/beadmaking,
quilting and flea-marketing.
Special THANKS & BLESSINGS to all of my special customers
