A Window, a Towel, and some Napkins

I received a really pretty dish towel from my daughters last year for Mother's Day.  Too pretty to use for drying dishes...but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. 
Last month I decided it was just what the kitchen window needed.  I sewed a quick row of stitching for a rod pocket, and hung it up along with three vintage napkins. I think it looks pretty good!  The window is a western exposure so the dish towel/window treatment also cuts down on the glare coming though that window. I love it when things work out!





I'm joining in the party for
Vintage Inspiration Friday.
I love all the inspiration I find there!

The tea towel is perfect in that window with the napkins...so clever of you! I love your cabinets, too. Someday I would love to have some glass-front ones.
You will smile everytime you walk in there I bet!!
