Embellished Towel Basket

I have a bathroom that is a pretty herbal wash green with red and white accents. It’s a cheery room, but you will have to take my word on that because I can’t get a decent picture in that space. It’s a guest bathroom, and while I have towels in the linen closet, I also keep a couple out in a basket so guests won’t have to plow through what will almost certainly be a messy closet.

Here’s my “towel basket”. It came from TJ Maxx.

Here’s how it works (bet you had no idea this is how it looks with towels…right!)

Basket Towels

I love red and white and I love polka dots. My mother used to call them “pokey dots.” Mother!! I miss you!! In a day when I had obviously lost my mind and thought I’d try to sew something, I bought a few yards of red and white pokey dots! While it’s not been stored on the front porch all this time, it has been wadded up just like it is here.

Polka Dots

That fabric came out of its sad, wadded up state in the closet.  Look what I did with just some scissors and glue!  POKEY DOTS!!

  1. Looks like you grew plum tomatoes. . . they’re my favorite. Lot’s of tomato meat, not too much mess(seeds and liquid). Great cut up for omletts and salads and even sandwiches. I can’t bend over too much to garden, so for years, I’ve had really large pots and I can grow at least three types of tomatoes in them. We have a pool and when the grandkids are swimming, I go over to check on the plants and they love it when I throw (cherry) tomatoes at them. They all jump up to catch them. What a wonderful snack. They are fun and good for them too.

    • You are making me crave those tomatoes and it’s a long time from July when we’ll actually have them here in Virginia. I so envy you having a pool. If I win the lottery….. 🙂 Eva
