A is for...

... a new towel in my kitchen.  A few months back West Elm had these super cute hand towels on sale and I had to have one.  They didn't have the monogram I wanted so I decided to make my own.

I used some fabric medium mixed with black paint


and some trusty stencils from the craft store 



And my West Elm hand towel turned personal in 5 minutes


It's the personal touches that make my rental apartment my own.



I just noticed that white bowl that's in the photo is empty again. Time to stock up at the farmers market before Summer is over. So sad it's coming to and end soon.  School starts next week!

I bought that towel at West Elm too and one with a monogram but I am afraid to hang them up. I can just see my husband drying his bike grease covered hands on them, or my son with his dirt smudged hands. So they sit politely in the cabinet.

I had no idea you rented too!
