~ Vintage Linen's... days of the week towels...

These days of the week linen towels, are more linens from my collection of things my Granny made me. These were the last set of towels she made me. I tend to have one of these hanging off my oven door. As my quick towel when I need to dry off my hands...
Granny had made me numerous things in the last decade of her life. I was the one who loved this stuff. And she had a stash of vintage patterns dating back to the 30's in her sewing room. 
She made me all kinds of cute things. I have a set of pot holders with cat's on them. That I keep intending to photograph. But they are part of my kitchen items that I use. So every time I think about photographing them... they are in need of a wash.
So as I write this post... it dawns on me that I am missing two of the towels. I could have swore I manage to photograph all seven towels.
But somehow I manage to miss two of them. And manage to photograph a couple of them twice!

Be sure to check out all the fun things this week at...

These are really cute! There are a couple sets of days of the week towels that I've seen that I wanted to buy online, but... they've been out of my range for towels since they'd probably just sit in my closet. Hoping thrifting will payoff for that one day!

Love the DOW towels, and how special it must be to have a set made by your grandmother! They're just precious. The complete sets aren't easy to find and usually they sell for more than my budget allows. :)

I have not attempted to buy "sets" of them in a couple years. I also notice that their prices are a little steep. And if I buy them. I intend on using them.

I do occasionally buy a random day towel here and there. Simply cause I like the design on it. And want something new to put into rotation in the kitchen towel drawer.

But I lucked into my Granny in her later years, deciding to take up embroidery, out of boredom. :)
