Obsession with Tea Towels | Tuscan Blue Design
OK, yes, I love tea towels. The obsession started when we lived in England…where there is a tea towel in every gift shop and for every occasion…what’s not to love?!
Pinterest has fueled my obsession…I get giddy when I pin to my Terrific Tea Towel board…
Contemporary designs and patterns go beyond your Grandmother’s vintage tea towels with cherries and flowers (and yes I love those too!). Tea towels are the perfect canvas for artists and designers to express themselves…and in return we can express ourselves.
Take a look…(images are from Pinterest)

So sweet, a tea towel calendar…reminds me of home
Back to where it all started…England!
If you’re not sure what to do with your perfect tea towels…
Hang one or two in a window…
OR make a pillow…

OR…put them on the wall…
(wrap them around a canvas frame…staple…and hang…or prop on a shelf)
But most of all USE THEM…to wash-up or display!
My well-worn, well-loved, washing-up tea towels…
