The Tea Towel

Miss Marple was a fan of plain and serviceable tea towels.  In the book At Bertram’s Hotel, Miss Marple comments on her purchase of tea towels-“definitely NOT covered with radishes or baby lambs!!” she boasts.

My dish towels were recently in need of replacement, so  I chose flat woven (as opposed to terry cloth) white cloths with a blue woven stripe- both modest and appealing.

I find hand washing my dishes much more enjoyable with a nice baker’s dozen of these good towels neatly stacked near by.

This must have been one of the towels that made Miss Marple shudder so!
