Cottagey Improvising...

Or...
 unconventional imagination in the
"necessity is the mother of invention" thinking

I needed a kitchen towel hook in my kitchen...
all I had were a few of those "command" sticky hooks...
the ones that come with the handy back to "un"stick the hook when no longer wanted without damaging walls

You see what I mean with the towel hanging by it?
It doesn't work...
kept falling...
and I don't care for dirty kitchen towels...
and didn't care for the look, either

Took a bottle cork out of my drawer and looked at it...
until I figured out how to make it work for me...
and put a little hole in one end...
and topped my hook off with it

The next step was taking a cotton twine and wrapping it around one corner of the towel...
not too tightly so that it would fit over the hook just snugly...
doesn't it look like they are giving each other a happy hug?

Unconventional...
but, it works and I like the look.
the towel stays in place and I just remove the twine and put it around the next clean towel to go up

I could sew on a little tab that would slide over the cork and hook
but, why...?

Please have a wonderful day, or night.
