I have a collection of vintage terry bath towels from the fifties and sixties. Besides their quaint patterns and stripes, they often were decorated with a crochet trim at the hem that I find a little irresistable.
This non-terry towel with the applique detail is possibly even earlier, and I would love to have a dozen of them.
Vintage terry towels are found at thrift stores for practically nothing. They are our outside towels for water play, or for setting down on a wet chair, or one that hasn't been sprayed off after days in the weather.
They bring a cheery no fuss cottage house mood to the place in summer. We always have stacks of them in the main bath. Their built in nostalgia is just an added bonus.
Have a soft and lovely Summer Weekend inside or out!
Ciao! for now!
