Tea Towels as Art

I have always loved April Cornell tea towels. They have great color combinations, are a thick waffle weave and wash like a dream. 

But do I use dishtowels for dishes? No, not always.  Sometimes I use them as art. I fold them in stacks and display them in the china cupboard, or arrange them in a wire basket near the kitchen sink, or stretch them on a frame. 

The lovely peach & salmon tea towel shown in this photo usually hangs from a hook on the rack in the distance and adds a lovely touch of fabric and color to a quiet corner.

My Italian grapefruit soda bottle and "Abraham Darby" english roses match perfectly!
