What is it about these vintage kitchen towels that attracts me? One word: cheery. I love everything about these cheery retro prints and have been collecting them for a long time. Whenever I see one that is in good condition, I grab it. Come to think of it, I think I began to collect these when I was living in Boston. In those days, I collected Fiesta pottery. The bright, vivid colors seemed to go perfectly with my Fiesta.
I eventually sold that Fiesta collection, but the love of these vintage prints remained. How can you not smile when you look at these?
I have quite a few and I use them in different ways. They can appear as a dresser scarf, like this one in my bedroom:
Or they can be turned into a valance, like this one in my studio:
Of course, they can also be cut up and used as napkins or pillow covers or any number of things.
Just a peek at another one of my collections. Do you have any of these vintage linens?
