I usually bring home postcards but occasionally a tea towel.  I am unable to explain why.

  1. Why? Probably because it is much more tasteful than most of the tea towels I have seen. And the blue tiles were exquisite. And the babe on the beach.

  3. I love the way that the Portuguese seem to use ceramic tiles for decoration. I think that tea towels are a great souvenir, because they bring back nice memories at less pleasant times, such as when you start the climb to the top of the washing up mountain.

  4. Photographs of washing lines…tea towels as souvenirs….there’s a theme developing here. Is there such a trait as linenphilia?

  5. I can explain why. Postcards seem to have disappeared off the face of the earth. You seem to have found some jolly tasteful tea towels. I bet they don’t get much use.

  9. No explanation needed. For a while, I was bringing back rocks . . . then local art, then souvenir trinkets . . . and now, mostly photos, although I’m often tempted with other stuff.

  10. I discovered a whole stash of unused souvenir tea towels when clearing Mum’s house. They’re all in use now, as my own where threadbare – and they’re much prettier than my old ones too.

  11. I like the rooster. We brought ceramic cups as souvenirs from Portugal, Andrew. We bring home dish towels on occasion. I like things we can use. –Curt
