This week's Kitchen Cure assignment asks you to add something beautiful, such as flowers, art, or anything that will nourish and inspire you. We're thinking of adding one or two pretty kitchen towels and have our eyes on PataPri's new designs featuring spring blossoms, charming animals, and other fresh, colorful motifs. Kitchen towels such as these almost seem too lovely to get dirty. One could frame or hang them for display only. Yet, we also like the idea of giving ourselves permission to use something special every day. After all, we spend a lot of time in the kitchen in order to nourish ourselves and our loved ones. How about you? Would you wipe your hands on these towels or treat them as art?
Check out these and many other designs at the PataPri Etsy shop. The towels are hand-printed on cotton fabric using water-based, toxic-free inks and sell for $10-15 each.
