i heart tea towels

September 2, 2008

So….I think I might have a small problem.  I think I am addicted to tea towels.  I mean, it could be a worse addiction.  At least this one ends up with clean and dry dishes at the end of the day.  The picture to the left is my drawer of everyday ones.  I have the nice ones (ie. anthropologie and others) in with my tablecloths.  I just use the nice ones for hanging on my oven.  A few of my everyday towels started off as nice ones but the washing directions lied to me.  I think it is kinda better this way.  Now I get to appreciate them more often instead of when they are just hanging on my oven.  Another way I use them is by laying one out over my kitchenaid mixer.  Serves two purposes, 1)I use one that is cute so I get to see it 2) I am too cheap to buy a mixer cover, plus I can’t find any that go with my decor. 

Does anyone else share my love?

    What are tea towels…. are they the same thing as dish towels? If so.. I do love them, I collect vintage dish towels.. I’ll have to take a pic of them some time and show. Would love to see your nice towels that are stored away… let me know if you take any pics of those.

    Alas yes I share this ailment! I think I know the source of my problem though. It’s just that such pretty tea towels are in my price range. When the budget doesn’t stretch to a lamp or print then such beutiful tea towels are a nice way to bring something pretty back home. That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it 🙂

    Haha! Somebody said you’re a freak. For some reason I’m thinking it’s Gwin, does he read your blog?

    I personally love your collection – they are all so cute and/or fun!
