Kitchen Towels or Kitchen Curtains?

Saw this little number at Target the other day and held it close. It is a kitchen towel. Love, love the lettering!
But, of course, I cannot use it as a kitchen towel. How boring! My thought was maybe I could make a pillow out of it because that seems to be my favorite thing lately, accent pillows. When I got home though and started looking around my kitchen...I started to eye this area:
 And specifically, this area:
Now, I like these curtains, I really do. I made them so I have a soft spot for them. But they have been up for 2 1/2 years and that is a loooong time for someone who changes things...a lot. Lucky for me, I had bought two towels and two accent towels, so I could do this:
No sewing, just took off the tags and threw them up there. Five minutes, new look, who knew!
You may have noticed another little addition from the picture above (if you have a really, really good eye). In the window sill: I found these adorable little tins, $5 for the set of four at a garage sale while we were traveling this summer.
Those are raindrops on my window, not spots...okay, maybe it is a bit of both,

Okay, I love those tins! And the curtains were an awesome find as well.

The first thing to realize regarding kitchen curtains is that they are meant to create an ambiance different from any other room in the house. A kitchen curtain should be light for a number of different reasons. Kitchen curtains should allow just the right amount of sunshine in to enhance your kitchen’s natural beauty. Thank you...
