The humble tea-towel
|My new tea-towels, one is already in use|
At what point in one's life does one get excited about a pile of new tea-towels?
At my age!!
I went to Costco on the weekend with my son and I bought (among other things) 8 new tea-towls and gave my husband a pile of old scruffy ones (to use in the shed). It was so nice to open my drawer this morning and remove a brand new tea-towel that looked smart, stain-free and scruff-free!!
Even the smallest, most trivia things in life that can bring joy and a smile!!
And if you thought tea-towels were for only drying dishes, how wrong you are:
Wrap ice and break
Line your tea tray
Protect your tender hands
Dry fresh greens
Create a cushion
Give as gifts
Wrap as gift wrap
Line your bread basket to keep bread hot
As a napkin or table cloth
As a placemat or table runner
Wrap a wine bottle
To stabilise a mixing bowl
Drying glasses - stand on a tea-towel to soak up the water
Line shelves inside cabinets
And if you are a boy (my brothers) then you use them to "flick" your siblings!!
Any other ideas?
