Tea Towels - Monday Linens

Excuse me for being slow today. I have been dealing with ripe cherries, drying them and making cherry clafautis. The cherry clafautis was a new recipe for me, but I think it turned out very yummy. Of course I had a little sample. I can't give company tonight bad clafautis. Now I must find some other things to do with more cherries.

Today is Monday Linens day and I am sharing tea towels.

This is most of my small collection hanging on our outdoors trellis. You can click on the picture to enlarge and see more detail. The tea towel with the pink trim has two kitties and a dog in the middle. It was made as a baby gift for me by my mother's favorite Aunt Eva. The two towels with yellow flowers were found and given to me by my friend, Caryl. She always finds wonderful treasures with yellow on them for me.

This is a sweet Time for Tea towel given to me by another friend.

When I first met Elizabeth Knight, a tea book writer, she was selling some tea accessories and this tea towel came home with me. I love the crocheted edge on this towel. I think of Elizabeth each time I see the towel.
The other towels I am not sure where they came from, but I love them just the same. Tea towels are fun to hang in the kitchen or for that matter other rooms for decoration. I do have a difficult time thinking of using them.

What a gorgeous collection, and I love that you got one as a baby gift! My favorite is the embroidered "Time for Tea" yellow towel, but I also like the one you got from Elizabeth Knight, as I have never seen such a fancy edge treatment on a printed towel like that. Very unique!

The tea towels are beautiful and that was a great way to display them for the photo.

I have never tried cherry clafautis, but I'd like to try it. I do enjoy cherry cheesecake and cherry pie.

Such a pretty picture of the growing cherries - looks like you can pick your own, lucky!!!

I love that dessert too - make it often when cherries are available and don't cost and arm and a leg!!!

Such pretty tea towels.
