Thow in the Towel, Towels

No Lovelies, I haven't thrown the towel in--even though I haven't posted in a long while.  But other folks should throw in their towels. Consider giving them an extended life as rags. New towels are not expensive!

Look at these fluffy new towels. Even draped on hooks they look lovely.  New towels rule.
The Yellow Cape Cod
If there is one thing that is a common denominator in most of the houses I consult on, regardless of price, it is crappy towels. 

Here's a little peek into a few of the Towel Offenses that I've witnessed.  And, yes, the owner's know I am coming and that the house is to be 'show ready'.

Dirty towel.
Don't matched towels.

Old, use ta be black towels.

 Sad towels.

Faded towel.
 Slung towels.
Used-too-long-wet-nasty towel.   
Snakin' towels!
 Rolls gone wrong towels.
Don't match-don't care towel.
Flippin' initials on old embroidered towels.
Patriotic towels.
Stop and Go towels.
Geriatric blue towels.
Just all wrong towels.


  1. OMG! Don't people know there are the "don't touch those, they're mom's special towels" towels and the "go ahead, but fold them nicely afterwards" towels?

    1. Heather, it never fails to amaze me that folks don't have 'show towels'. I guess we are of a different generation. In every single report, I have to mention, 'buy new towels for display." And towels are cheap! I don't get it.

    I can't believe these pictures.....and they want to sell!!!!
    Too funny, but sad, very sad!

    1. Patty, isn't it sad that people put those awful towels out. To me, I should have to even mention pretty towels. Glad you got a smile out of it!

  3. I know you may not have meant this to be funny but it was stinking hilarious

  4. So funny! It's so true - new towels are SO nice, and they're one of those things that you don't think about until you're like "I guess I should get new towels..." and then when you get them you're like "why didn't I do this 6 months ago??!" ;)

    1. Yes, Kristen! And, when you are getting ready for company, you don't really want to add another chore like shopping for towels.
