Verse written by Jenny Joseph printed on a cotton tea towel.

"WARNING When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me, And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter..."

It's a tea towel...it drys stuff!! it was bought as a desperate last minute Christmas present for my mother. just to bulk her Christmas stocking up. Made me look like I'd made an effort. Then as she opened it...She cried!! not from disappointment but happiness....she's always been weird!!

Bought these as gifts for my sisters. The cream coloured tea towels are a lovely large size, and they are printed (in purple naturally) very sharply and clearly. Cannot say how they wash, as not known. Delivery was very quick and arrived on the day expected. A lovely gift as they can be posted, and look like you've made the effort to choose something unusual.
