First the plans and why this particular repost is significant.
First I have to admit I have a thing for table linens, dish towels, napkins and table scapes.
I am totally not over the top nor am I fancy. I am more into vintage than fancy.
I have always used cloth napkins to set our table on a daily basis.. Not because I am trying to be fancy. I just think they are frugal. I always thought why buy paper.
Well tonight. Our table is set with a vintage table cloth. My pottery. A crystal vase with flowers.
And guess what?Paper napkins. The thing is they are the pretty ones and they actually go with my color scheme.
I will write a post during the week about our little dinner party.
I hope you'll enjoy it.
Until then here is my repost.
This towel was made by mother many years ago. It is actually hand applique. I don't think my mother ever did anything like this again. She was never a quilter.
And stopped sewing when I was in elementary school. She began working full time.
I began cooking the evening meal at our house when I was in 5th grade. My mother worked at Montgomery Wards at night. She would cook the meat and leave in the oven and I was responsible for the rest. I was even allowed to choose the vegtables.
Which BTW was rather funny because once I learned to cook frozen peas and liked them I cooked them a couple of times a week!
Here is another towel that I purchased on Ebay
Can you guess why? Yes the donkey. I love anything that has donkeys on it. I love both of these towels. They are displayed on my kitchen counter. They are called "no no" towels. Cowboy isn't allowed to touch! Do you have a man that spills tomato sauce and grabs a white towel to clean it up? I mean this man drives me crazy there can be a red towel and a white towel on the counter and which one does he pick up. The white of course!
Back to today....so I am totally expecting my daughter to gasp when she sees the paper napkins. I'll have the camera ready to catch her expression.
Thanks for visiting.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday Supper
