Cooking every day and spending so much time in the kitchen, I've found I need dish towels that serve their purpose, are inexpensive, and can stand up to plenty of stain remover. One of two favorites are these cotton towels (particularly the blue stripe, although you can also find them in red) from Aunt Martha's found in the embroidery section at Wal-Mart or a crafts store like Joanne's (or on Amazon here). These towels are always hanging in a convenient spot in our kitchen to use to dry wet hands.
Their vintage designs, like this multi stripe, are simple and sweet. They remind me of a dish towel that possibly would have been used during the time-frame our house was built. These towels wash wonderfully and hold up to a lot of use!
My other favorite dish towel is from Ikea (or found on Amazon here). These remind me a lot of your good old fashioned flour sack towel in the fact that they are great for absorbency but come out of the dryer looking pretty wrinkled. I always have one on the drainboard of our sink, for those inevitable dishes that need to be hand washed and for clean eggs that need drying.

To all my wonderful readers: For the past several months I've had to give priority to some other things and my blog, as you may have noticed, has had to be put on the back burner a bit. I miss posting more frequently, but realized that it was the only way I could keep blogging along with everything else that has to be done. It dawned on me this week that it probably wouldn't hurt just to share a picture or two more often, so maybe I'll try that. But I just wanted to say... thank you so much for reading!
(House projects have also been put on the back burner too as this Jeep has been Justus's favorite project of late! *wink - wink*)
