Utilitarian

kitchen cotton

A couple of weekends ago I went over to a friends' house and noticed she had a knit dish rag made of kitchen cotton. When I asked about it, she said it was made by her great grandmother. She uses it a lot, and it's in great shape. Then last weekend I was over at my sister-in-law's. She has all these cute pot holders and a kitchen aid cover, all made by her grandmother. She uses them regularly.

I absolutely adore handmade utilitarian kitchen linens. I feel bad that my kitchen is lacking in this department. I don't have a grandmother to make them for me. So I guess it's up to me.

p.s. See, that's more bread in the background.
