I have always loved pretty tea towels .
I have a small collection and I have been trying
to come up with a way to display them.
When I saw this wire wall organizer at Home Goods,
I said to myself, "Hey, that might work!"
So I brought it home and played
around with it and guess what?
I had also been looking for something for this wall
by the refrigerator so it seemed like the perfect
place for my new tea towel display.
~ love this towel with the little ruffle at the bottom ~
I found the star at Joann's a while back ~
isn't the floral pattern just so pretty?
I'm very happy with my little display.
This is the first thing I see when I walk in the house from the
garage so I love having something there that I really like.
I can change out the towels for different seasons too!
Here's a little tidbit for you:
I've always wondered if there is a difference between tea towels and dish towels ~
because, you know, I have lots of time to think about things like that!
A tea towel is about the size of a hand towel and its intended use is for drying dishes.
Tea towels are different today from when they were first named, as some are
decorative wall hangings while others are just mundane utility cloths with a new name.
The name "tea towel," originating in mid-19th century England, referred to the linen towel
used by the lady of the house to clean her china teapot and serving ware.
She trusted only herself with the task of cleaning and taking care of these delicate and important pieces.While sometimes still called a tea towel, they're more commonly known as dish towels
and do not see a teapot as often as they used to.
So now we know ~ thrilling, right?
Do you love pretty tea/dish towels as much as I do?
