VintageThingies Thursday - Tea Towels

It's Thursday! That means all kinds of great vintage things are being shown at Suzanne's. She has some great dishes to share this week. Go to her blog here to see where she found these dishes.

This week, I have some tea towels we could use to dry those dishes. Over the last couple of weeks, I have acquired these lovely kitchen linens. (Sorry, these pictures are not very good.)


Let's take a closer look. I found some lovely towels with flowers.




Some red and blue ones.



This one is circled with fruit.


The last three are embroidery.



Now hurry over to Suzanne's and see what every one is sharing this week.

I like the vintage flower prints, and the embroidered ones are even better (although not as colorful).
