You know it's the strangest thing - I go from having too much of " things " to running out of them completely.
There doesn't seem to be a waning period.
One minute I have too many tea towels to fit in a kitchen drawer and the next thing you know I don't have any ( same thing happens with panties and bras for me )
Anyway - we needed new tea towels - but would never think of making a trip out to just pick those items up.
" What are you doing today ? "
" Oh just going out tea towel shopping " said no one ever.
So............ we were out Christmas shopping.
At Chapters ( that's the Barnes and Noble version here in Montreal )
And lo and behold they had tea towels !
Not just any old tea towels but PERFECT tea towels !
Working tea towels I might add
John says - I thought we were buying books?
Suzan says - But we need tea towels - I'm basically using rags right now
John says - WHO BUYS TEA TOWELS AT A BOOK STORE???
Suzan says - Well obviously a lot of people do if they're selling them !
Suzan says - Oh look - they have cashmere blankets too - and candles - and beautiful tea sets............
John says - This is ridiculous - really - it's just ridiculous - we're here to buy Christmas gifts !
Suzan says - Lower your voice - please - OMG - we NEED tea towels.
John says - They're 10.00 a towel - are you nuts ?
Suzan says - I NEED these ones - they're perfect - I'm always trying to figure out measurements !
John says - Ok grab a couple and let's finish shopping
But then I saw this one too and HAD to have it.
And we continued our shopping..................
Later on when we got home I put them out to take photos..................John was doing something or other at the sink and went to grab one to dry his hands with
Suzan shrieks - DON'T USE IT PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!
John says - Why not?
Suzan says - I'm thinking of framing them actually
John says - YOU'RE INSANE - I THOUGHT WE NEEDED TEA TOWELS ?
Suzan says - There's an old rag on the counter - you can use that ......................
Have a wonderful day everyone ♥
I'm off to buy tea towels - we desperately need them !
You know how it is - one day you have too many to put in frames and the next thing you know...........
