  1. I can hardly wait to purchase my first set of tea towels. I plan on purchasing a separate set for my oldest daughter who also likes vintage. Do I have to have a theme, or will just any mixture of vintage fabric do?

  2. You didn't mention just framing them and hanging them as works of art! Vintage tea towels RULE, Martha Stewart's magazine did a special on them a couple of years back. And they can be had to match vintage print tablecloths and other accessories as well!

  3. I'm so glad I found your blog.
    I am a tea towel lover too!It reminds me
    of my mom….she used to love them too.
    I do not own a dishwasher and do not plan
    to ever own one.I love doing dishes and
    use my beautiful tea towels.

  4. I spend hours of my life hunting for beautiful vintage kitchen towels. I don't mind people making something else from vintage tea towels, but be sure and leave some for drying your martini glasses to a sparkling shine!!

  5. I may even have seen this idea here…if I have, apologies! But too fab not to share, even if it is old news here! I read about someone having a whole wonderful pile of tea towels, and she had embroidered her initial onto a corner of each one.

  6. I love my teatowels, most have memories as I try to buy one when I visit anywhere special,also those which family and friends have given as gifts.I do not have a dishwasher and do not want one as have found when using other people's that by the time you have loaded,waited then unloaded you could have washed them by hand,dried and put away and forgotten about it.

  7. i personally think tea towels should be dipped in ice cold water wrapped and twisted up real tight and then swatted incredibly hard against the backsides of missbehaving partners (you know when youve done it right when you see the tears ! his from pain and yours from laughter!

  8. I love tea towels. When I got my embroidery machine I couldn't wait to make some to start a new tradition of collecting them. I agree either people say they are to pretty or they can't see a use. I love them though and will continue to make them.

  9. I've used tea towels for years!! I dry my hands and the kitchen counter. Not everything I have is dishwasher safe so I hand wash and dry them. I actually wear my tea towels out!! When they are no longer good for dishes they become dust rags (doesn't anyone do that either anymore!?!?!)
