Towel Bar Show and Tell

I needed to stop at Bed, B*th, and Beyond the other day. I don't get there often as it is a little out of our neighborhood. We were getting ready to check out when my husband said he thought this was a neat idea. I did too! It is a towel bar that hangs on the kitchen cupboard door. It is about 10 inches wide and has hooks to go over the door. It is not permanently attached.

There it is on my cupboard with my Easter towel.
My husband NOW understands that there are towels to USE and towels to LOOK AT. This is a LOOK AT Towel bar!!

I also taught him about Soap to Use and Soap to Look at!! It took many a year and many a ruined cute little heart shaped soap, or embroidered towel, but WE have it NOW!
I am thrilled with this new find. They also had hooks in the same manner.
Many more Show and Tell items and stories at Kelli's. Go see!!
To answer some questions: The big bird basket was from P*er One.
Thank you for all who ask how I am feeling. Not great. But I am hanging in. I am not blogging as much, but I am trying to visit some. Friday marks the half way point. I appreciate all your prayers and concern.

That is a neat towel bar - I'll have to look for one. Glad to hear you are getting out some even though you don't feel so great. We had wonderful news today - my daughter had a clear MRI yesterday. I know there is a miracle out there for you, too. Take care, Sally

Heather said...

Great idea. I need to check for one of those at our store.

I have always said there should be another kind of premarital counseling, where men are taught about how to fold towels, and about the guest towels and guest soap, etc. lol

Kathy said...

All men must learn these lessons! Love that towel bar - might have to go get one or two!

Yippee for the half way point! I'll be talking to you tomorrow to have a mini phone celebration!!

love you...

I have one of these towel bars on my kitchen cabinet, and I also have a "look at" towel on mine! I'm glad we are training our husbands so well. I'm praying for you. laurie

The towel bar is a really good idea and what a cute little towel. Someday I am again going to live in a town with a Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and a Pier One, and a Cracker Barrel, I am determined!

I really would love to have a towel bar like that! Thanks for letting us know they are available. I giggled when I read about the husband lessons!

Spruce Creek Farm said...

I knew that they made towels bars for over the door for use in the bathroom (because I have one of those) but I didn't know that they made smaller ones for kitchen towels. You towel with the bunny is cute.

Our Bed and Bath closed its doors just last season. I'm so bummed.

Love the bunny towel.

My Show n Tell is some of my treasured roses and amaryllis this week. Come by and enjoy the sweet fragrance and beauty.

Happy Friday.

Sandra said...

What a good idea!!

Simply Heart And Home said...

What a wonderful idea! I do like that towel bar.

I think all husbands need to learn about the home soap and the "company" soap! :)

Blessings,

Gina

A Hint of Home said...

Those towel bars or hooks could come in handy in several places.
So happy you're half way through.

Susan said...

I think these towel racks are a neat idea. I smiled as I read about the one's to use and the one's to look at :o) Takes us awhile to train these guys!!!!
The Easter towel is precious.

Julie said...

Oh my goodness...I had to laugh about..Towels to look at and Towels to use...that is so me!!! My husband and son can't understand why I would want towels to look at???? I sometimes loose it ..if I see that the "only to look at towel" has been used...Do I have OCD???
Have a great Friday...Julie

Joyce said...

You are so funny - towels and soap to use versus towlels and soap to look at. Why don't they get it? It's as plain as the nose on their face!!! You gave me a chuckle.

My thoughts and prayers are with you for your health, peace and happiness. Thank you for bringing joy to blogland today!!

Jadehollow said...

Ceekay.. I love that lil gadget. My kitchen towels are always hanging on the oven door handle and I hate that look not to mention they are constantly falling off. I'll have to go pick one up.
Thanks for sharing.
Keeping you in my prayers.
Debbie

Susan B said...

What a great idea about the towel bar! I love your Easter towel. Too cute!! Thank you for sharing.

Mary Anne said...

Oh! I love this! I have the same problem in my kitchen. All of my display towels end up getting used and worn. I will have to look for a towel bar to go over my cabinet door for displays;-)

Have a great day.

Blessings...<><

Visiting you via Kelli's Show and Tell blog train!

Sigh, training up husbands is hard. I just posted the other day on how I can communicate these little niggles with him WITHOUT WORDS. You'll have to check it LOL!

Thanks for this - I got a chuckle!

What a great idea. I love your little "do not use" Easter towel.

Have A Fabulous Friday

What a great idea! Beats using the oven door handle or putting screws and nails in the cabinets!
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the input on my lamp, I just threw it together and I did think about painting, I don't know how long it will last anyways, LOL. I love the towel holder and that would look good painted too! Don't ya just love spray paint (;
With 3 boys, a husband and my Dad I go through alot of towels and soaps!! They just don't care if they ruin them.

Ashley ~ said...

I love the towel bar*! Great idea to be able to put it where you want and need it. I also want to tell you that you're in my prayers. I KNOW too well how you feel. I posted this morning about feeling better, and I am, but it wasn't too long before I was dragging pretty badly again. UGH* Hang in there ~ we'll get through this*!!! _Ashley ~

The Quintessential Magpie said...

That's a great idea, Ceekay! Thanks for sharing this. I will be sure and check it out. That's exactly where you need one, too!

XO,

Sheila :-)

~CC Catherine said...

What a cool idea for this towel bar! You are too cute., I know, it takes a little time to get the guys trained on the right soap and the right towels that are permissable! ;) ~CC Catherine

Picket said...

That is a great idea...and girl my hubby is well trained about the things to use and things to just look at! lol lol We even have a clothes hamper that is for looking only!!!! lol lol Thanks for coming by and checking out our little getaway resort! lol You little doodlehead...that is a lizard that is on that birdhouse! lol lol He lives in there and everyday he comes out and suns himself...he is a little green lizard but he can turn to the color of whatever he is sitting on! lol lol have a great weekend sweetie and I hope you get to feeling 100% in no time!

Victoria @ Auction Girl Vintage said...

Glad to hear you've passed the halfway mark, whew! All downhill from here, thank goodness.

I just painted my kitchen cabinets black, and mounted a regular towel bar on the front panel of the sink cabinet. Everyone at our house is tall, and half of us (uh, the parents half) are also getting old and fat and don't want to bend over an extra 12 inches :o) No pretty towels on mine, though, just a couple basic white linen dish towels we can push aside to open the door for the trash or the soap. I keep a basket of dishtowels behind the sink (sort of a bay window) and we go through at least half a dozen a day!

Hi CeeKay:

It was so good to hear from you---I think about you often. I'm glad you're nearly half-way through this treatment---I wish you felt better. You're a real special blogging friend to me.

I loved the towel bar idea. My pal Bonnie has one of those on a kitchen cabinet door.

Hope you are having a good weekend. L, Dana

Pam said...

What a great towel bar. I need to look for one of those.

Connie said...

Hmmmm.... even I might have to look into one of those. I don't have Easter towels, but I do have Christmas towels. I never know where to put them! Nice find...now you KNOW that's a good one when your "showandtellchallenged" cousin thinks it's good!!

love ya,
Constance LaRayne

Christine said...
