I love hand towels. I’m not talking cheap hand towels here, but ones rich with color, made from true, albeit absorbent, fabric and preferably oversized. It all stems from the inheritance of my grandmothers french hand towel collection. I even made this bench cushion, pictured below, from that collection over a decade ago! Still looks pretty good after three babies, huh? And it’s always been in my kitchen, where you’d think it would look worse for the wear by now:
I also have added them to a basket in my powder room:
Elizabeth has been so taken by napkins lately that she was compelled to take this photo where the napkins steal the show (anyone else instantly notice the McCarty Pottery as well?)
This near addiction has spilled over into a love for cloth napkins as well. As I’ve popped in so many local stores this summer, I started taking pictures of my favorite hand towels and napkins. I hope you are inspired as a beautiful hand towel within reach somehow can be that beam of happiness smiling back at you in the midst of the chaos of life. And at $15-$25 each, they also make a great gift as we often won’t spurge on these beauties for ourselves. But one rolled and bound with a special ribbon is always perfect.
