2011 Calendar Roundup: Colorful Tea Towels!

The tea towel calendar has been a kitschy kitchen collectible for several decades. You can find lots of vintage ones online and in thrift shops, as well as brand new editions that use classic motifs like lighthouses, puppies, and kitchen prayers. We love it that artists and crafters have picked up the tea towel calendar idea and have applied fresh, contemporary designs to this classic item.

We're for anything that does double or triple duty in the kitchen and the tea towel calendar does just that: a practical calendar, a piece of art and, when the year is done, a mighty fine dish cloth! Here's a few that have caught our eye so far for 2011.
