After a long year and a long winter our souls are crying out for color and beauty. Yet we are weeks away from reaping blooms from our gardens or the farmers market. Is there an immediate remedy for what ails us? Yes–floral tea towels can bring the garden into our kitchens right now, until we can fill our homes with fresh summer flowers.
We found some beauties that made our hearts glad and certainly will bring cheer to a daily chore. In addition to bright floral patterns we looked for good quality cotton that will wick away moisture and retain the color through many washes.
Five brands met our requirements: DII Design Imports, Mary Lake Thompson, Maison d’Hermine, Michel Design Works, and Montgomery Street Designs. Some of the towels are sturdy, others–like the flour sack towels–soft and forgiving.
Bring the garden into your kitchen
Fortunately all of these companies have stores on Amazon, which means you only have to wait two days for your choice to arrive and bring some much needed cheer. And as an Amazon affiliate we get a few cents from your purchase, which makes us happy, too. Sometimes it’s the simple things.
Gorgeous tea towels not only brighten our kitchens, they make welcome hostess and Mother’s Day gifts, and are a creative wrap for gifts.
We would fill our kitchens with any and all of these.
