T is for Towels

I have been doing some organizing and fluffing around the house. What is fluffing? Just moving things around...looking at the things you own in a different way.  We are having our Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen painted  soon so I am removing all the pictures from the walls. This means I may just change the location of some of my art work.

I was cleaning out my buffet in the dining room and came across a beautiful table runner that was a gift from my friend, Melinda. She lived in France for a while and this piece of needlework came from across the pond.  I had an empty towel rack in my guest bath and I thought this piece would look pretty there as a decoration.

Leaf Sprigs are embroidered on the table runner...And the edging coordinated well with some of my fancy hand towels.

Fluffing makes me a happy camper. I feel as though I took a trip to TJMaxx but I shopped from home!!

That looks very pretty. Sometimes I would like to have a rack in the kitchen to use vintage towels. I need to look around and see where I can put one. Enjoy your day!

As I was re-organizing my closet, I found a box of Christmas decorations I had forgotten. Now I am searching for Spring and Easter decorations well in advance! LOL

What a stunning runner you have on display! Isn't it a great feeling to shop from what you have at home?

Very pretty, Arlene! It sure is a good feeling to shop the house and find something that looks fresh and new.

That is so beautiful Arlene!! I love the monogrammed linens and the runner goes so well with them.

I've never referred to it as 'fluffing', I like that! The towels and table runner are so pretty, they really compliment each other!!

I love to fluff! Yesterday I took some things down from above the doll cases in the living room and relocated them to the foyer. Things look new and fresh and it’s nice to have different things to look at now.
Your runner and hand towels are beautiful! It’s good to use our pretty things....what’s the point of saving them? I figure that’s why so many treasures end up at Goodwill!

Isn't it wonderful when we can do that? I love doing the same thing...and it saves us lots of money! :)

My husband would say that that is the best way to shop! The towels and table runner are beautiful. Enjoy your day, Arlene.

"Fluffing" is always fun! It really is amazing how just a few 'adjustments' here and there can make a room look entirely new! That runner looks great with your guest towels! Good idea! I can't wait to see the changes you make!

You've taught me a new word and I like it. I like to fluff as well! It looks really nice!
