Vintage Dish Towel

I came across several items I couldn't resist at the thrift store yesterday. The first one was this dish towel. I picked it up simply because it felt wonderful - like it had dried a lifetime of dishes and could easily dry enough for my lifetime as well. I was also charmed by the care that had been taken with the embroidered edge - that someone would take the trouble with a plain white dish towel. It wasn't until I washed the towel and was pressing it that I got a surprise. I'm not sure if you can see it because obviously great care was taken to bleach it out but if you look carefully you can see the words, "Keynote Enriched Flour". My lovely little dish towel started it's life as a flour sack! How cool is that?

So, here it is in it's place of honour. No one else will notice this faded writing but I know it is there and it pleases me!
I have other treasures from yesterday's thrift store treasure hunt and I will share them later.
