Tea Towel Freebies

I was contacted by Al at www.all-tea-towels.co.uk to see if I would review a couple of their tea towels. In return I could keep the 2 tea towels. Never one to turn down a freebie, and realising that the kitchen would benefit from a couple of these lovely linen ones, I picked this.. ...and this one.
My photos don't do them justice, they are very pretty and possibly the loveliest tea towels I have ever owned.


I don't have a dishwasher - well I do, a six foot six inch one! He usually washes, but doesn't wipe, so armed with my lovely linen tea towels, I joined him at the sink. We are trying to keep the kitchen tidier and drying and putting away the pots certainly helps.


I loved these tea towels - I don't know if I would pay £6.50 each for them, but they are a lot nicer than the ones you get in the supermarket or at Dunelm Mills. Perhaps having just saved a few thousand pounds on a new kitchen I might! I imagine they last a lot longer too. However, the "Sale" section of the website has some good bargains though, so nip across and take a look.


If anyone wants me to review camper vans, spa days, restaurant meals etc, you know where to find me. xxx

Funny lady!

You will have to come & review drying up in our camper van....

Rather like the look of the first tea towel...

You lucky thing, they are beautiful. I have a real thing about tea towels, love them and buy all sorts of fancy ones, maybe I'm a tea towel snob.

I never buy posh tea towels, I shall go and check out the sale section though.

Lynne said...

That first one would make drying up a bit more enjoyable I think.

snoopydog said...

Oh what gorgeous tea towels! Just right for making a horrid job a little more appealing. Might have to go and have a look. Ros

There's a turn up, you choosing one with Paris on, anyone would think you had a bit of a thing for that city!
The blue one is very pretty too.

My tea towels are much abused by my men folk so I only ever buy cheap ones sadly. I couldn't bear it if they wiped up tomato sauce with a gorgeous Paris one!

How lovely you got to review and receive these 2 beautiful tea-towels. They're almost too nice to use ~I love them both~ the top one is very cottagey and of course as you know I simply love... All Things French, so the bottom one is just gorgeous. Have a wonderful day. xx

Have a delicious day!

They are beautiful - almost too nice to use! My own teatowels all come from Holland, as they tend to be bigger and much thicker than the ones over here.

Shirl said...

Very pretty designs.

Scented Sweetpeas said...

Very nice towels, I bet they make the job feel more fun :-)

Simone said...

Hello Diane, I did a review on tea towels from this company on Saturday! I have never had linen ones before and didn't realise that you have to soak before use! x

sea-blue-sky & abstracts said...

They're lovely tea towels Diane - and £6.50 is not so bad, because they will probably last for years. Certainly the few linen towels I have acquired/been given are still going strong - they may become soft and almost transparent but don't fray and are just the thing for drying glasses! x

harmony and rosie said...

You really are a jammy dodger, those towels are lovely. And talking of lovely, what a fantastic photo of you and your mum, before I read your post I thought she looked just like ET (that would be Elizabeth Taylor, not the Extra Terrestrial you'll be relieved to hear!).

potterjotter said...

Given that I tend to use teatowels as oven mits and they get really manky, I would just have these beauties hanging around the kitchen in a 'not-to-be-used' kind of way.

The Curious Cat said...

They are wicked - I like the first one especially! What a cool thing to do! xxx

The sort of the only real per set of two rubbish footwear also needs to be provided with unique attention. Bottoms of lousy shoes are unique, and may be picked with concern on the weather and weather locally. Some unqualified shoes are particularly generated for cool, snowy and slippery spots because they're different from bad weather lousy boot styles. Young children like walking on frequently and have absolutely to wear extra safety because of their foot then cowboy boots offers them that. Take notice you'll want to choose the right attachment program in order that it doesn TMt slide away from the kids TMs legs when they're taking part in. Zips and control keys are the traditional fastenings used, but you may get them with Velcro nails and flap.
