New dish towels...



I just LOVE starting off the new year with a drawer full of fresh new dish towels!!! I buy new sets every two years and get so excited when it's time to purchase them!

We don't have a lot of storage space in our small home, so after I wash and dry the dish towels, I fold them and roll them up so that they fit neatly into a kitchen drawer.

Is there something that you do every year or every other year in your kitchen to make your house a home?

Nope, not until now. What a great idea and I so need new dish towels. Thanks for the idea! Love the blue and white!

Oh I never thought of doing that before. I just love new dish towels. I think you may have inspired me to purchase a few new ones myself. Mine are really getting rather ratty.

At the beginning of every year I go through all of my kitchen cabinets. I take everything out one cabinet at a time. Wipe out the cabinet, sort, purge & sometimes re-arrange. It just feels so fresh once that task is done.

I received some new dish towels for Christmas. They are the new Clorox approved towels so they can be bleached and any color won't fade. I thought that was a great idea!

I like to change up the centerpiece on my island every so often to reflect the season and my mood. I also like putting candles there that remind me of kitchen scents.

I LUV new dish towels also. I did a posting several months ago about my kitchen organization. I roll my towels too, i think they take up less room. The blue is a beautiful shade. Most of mine are red/white and I usually buy them as I run across a good deal on really nice ones.

What a great idea to roll the cloths - they look so tidy that way!! My "New Year" kitchen amounts to changing the decorations on my island to reflect a Valentine's theme, and hanging heart wreaths on our pantry doors, (wreaths on all inside and outside doors are like candles in our home - you just can't have too many!!) :)

I remember seeing someone else post about doing this quite a while ago. I thought it looked like fun to do. But I got so many kitchen towels for my wedding that 9 1/2 years later I still have a drawer full of perfectly good towels. I have never bought towels for my kitchen!

They are beautiful!

I need some new ones as well. :)

This is why I love blogging so much! I have been married for 27 years, and never, ever thought to "roll" my dish towels! Thank you, Mrs. U! BTW, I think we have the same ones, are they from Williams Sonoma?

Mrs. U said...

Yes, Susan, they are Williams Sonoma. LOVE all their products!!!!

And I agree with you- you can find LOTS of great ideas on others' blogs, can't you? What a blessing to be able to learn from ladies all over the world!!!

His,
Mrs. U

I love this color combo... my kitchen is blue, yellow, and white.

Oh,I love those new dish towels! I think it is about time for me to renew my stock as well, and now I'm extra excited :-) I needed a good storage idea, and this seems like it will work perfectly. Thanks for posting!

Your dish towels are so pretty, I *love* the blue and white!

I used to roll mine in a drawer too but ended up with too many to do that so now they're in an upper cabinet next to the sink. Sounds like a strange place to put them but it works well for me. (o:

Love your new dish towels and love that you roll them up to fit them all in the drawer.
I also love your idea of replenishing with new every two years. It's a good practice to get into. Thanks for sharing.

I could use some new dish cloths. I used to buy new pillows every January.
