  1. Very smart idea! I have dropped dish towels on my floor ALL day long! And it doesn't help that my 9 month old likes to pull them down! Thanks for sharing this @ Show & Share. I am so happy to have you!

  2. So clever! I remember my boys always loved pulling them down & throwing them on the floor. {Grrr!} Wish I would have been as smart as you – maybe I'll try this solution for my grandchildren! Thanks for linking it up to Fabulous Friday at Faith, Trust, & Pixie Dust.

    Warmly, Michelle
