Featuring: The Dish Towel Collection

These pieces totally remind me of dish towels...nice ones...that I like...

I snagged this plain little recipe card holder and shelf at Goodwill and was completely inspired by the dishtowels!

Do they remind you of the dishtowels too?

A little chalk paint and a little of the rough stuff.

The recipe card holder, just HAD to go with it.

Now, is this a match made in heaven or what?

Thanks for entertaining my strange dishtowel fetish!

  1. these little creations are so sweet. I love the transformed look! I am a goodwill girl myself. such joy there is in making something from the cast aways! and the pennsylvania dutch cookbook really has my curiosity! I have some pennsylvania dutch heritage but not much about it has been passed down to me. have you tried any of the recipes in this cute little book. I would love it if you could share one or two. Have a wonderful day keep up the crafty spirit 🙂 I am going to follow along. I look forward to getting to know you. Janita

    • Yes, I have! I am from Allentown, Pa and live in Colorado now. There are some goodies I miss. I made Shoo-Fly Pie, hot bacon dressing, and potato filling and they were ALL good. There are also these funny little sketches and PA Dutch sayings in that book-so funny. I scored it on E-Bat and am just in love with it. I will definitely share some of the ideas:)

  2. I love love love this look. *whispers* I think I like it better than the dish towels themselves! 😉

  6. This totally looks like a tea towel, I actually have those tea towels, and a rug on the kitchen floor that looks like this, how crazy! You did a great job

  7. I love these, and I have… oh, about 150 grill towels like yours that I used as napkins at my wedding. If you have any ideas about what I can do with them, don’t hesitate to let me know!

    • HaHa…I should do a main ingredient Monday for dish towels! I found some super cute ones at Tuesday morning and they are too cute to really use as dish towels!

    • I’ve seen them pieced together to make a really cute picnic quilt, kitchen valances, table runners, and shopping/gift bags just to name a few ideas. can you tell i am kinda into repurposing?? ha ha 🙂 Good luck on your endeavor!
