It's early morning. I can't sleep due to a mixture of a terrible mattress and horrible pillow so I gave up and decided to start my day. With coffee in hand, emails checked and news read, I found myself at Amazon browsing around at kitchen themed decor again. If you are a regular reader of It's Just the Coffee Talking then you know I have a penchant for coffee themed kitchens! Although I was all over the place on my browsing, I decided for this mornings post I had to focus on ONE item... and I chose kitchen towels and kitchen towel sets.
One of the things about towels made today is unless you are buying from a top retailer, and paying top dollar, the quality isn't always that great. The seams sometimes come lose after repeated washings or they are thinner than the towels we all probably remember from our childhoods (when everything was made better and we didn't buy everything from China). Another issue with towels I've found is when you buy a full printed decor pattern stamped on them, they don't absorb quite as well because the heat and materials used in the stamping of the prints tend to 'seal' the cotton towel and it's not as porous.
I think coffee themed towels are mostly for looks anyway; buy the pretty towels to hang on the oven or bring out when you have guests, and use a regular, solid color (in a coordinating color) for every day. This also keeps them looking 'new' and pretty for years of use instead of months.
*I've done a number of coffee themed decor posts over the years; for more ideas just use the search engine in the right sidebar to search for 'coffee decor' or your own choice of search words.
