Pretty Pretty Oven Mitt-y!

Not only will these beauties keep your hands burn-free whilst baking, but they tell a love story to boot!

" This cotton oven mitt/glove records a love poem written by a boy to a girl in the "language of flowers", the Victorian-era means of communication in which various flowers and floral arrangements were used to send coded messages, allowing individuals to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken. Starting with the left side of the wreath to the right side, each flower reveals one more part of the missing puzzle. Included in the poem are amaranth globes, black eyed susans, daisies, poppies, dandelions, tulips, morning glories, roses, magnolias, laurel leaves, laurestine, forget-me-nots, honeysuckle. Try to decipher the poem with your guide here: " 

Designed by the lovely and talented Brittany Jepsen from The House That Lars Built blog (one of our favorites around here), one glove (or two!) can be pre-ordered on Etsy to arrive in time for Christmas at the bargain price of $23.75 each. It would surely make a sweet sentiment for any sweets (or savory!) maker you know.
