128 Napkins

Plus whatever is at the city place.
 
 
 
 Many with coordinating place mats.
 
Yikes.
Maybe I shouldn't have attempted to straighten the linen hutch.
I only threw 3 away.
 
But not these. They are my current favorite.
Something is missing.
 
Blue.
 

I don't have any blue napkins.
Oh, dear.
 
Are you cloth napkin user?

Loved this . . . I recently sorted out my cloth napkins and place mats as well. I don't think I have as many as you, but do love my cloth napkins. No blue here though . . .

I am *trying* to switch to cloth napkins. However, my hubby is a devout paper towel user so it probably won't ever happen... You have beautiful linens!

You could sew them into a quilt. We only use cloth napkins if we are being "posh", otherwise its paper for us too. I do however have quite a number which have been bought over the years with placemats and table runners, I really should get them out

They are so pretty I don't use cloth but would love too I guess the thought of more laundry keeps me from that. LOVE your collection and I have a collection myself too pretty to use. Weird eh?:) B

We use cloth napkins most of the time. I have stacks and stacks of them. I even hand paint many of my napkins. Thank goodness for my Miele ironing machine.

I love them, too but usually look through them for projects...to add to a tote bag or put on a shelf for a scarf. You have a nice collection and you NEED them all! Hugs!

Nothing says "this is a special dinner" like cloth napkins!! I don't use them, but I love them and you my friend have a wonderful collection!!

I am inspired to perhaps buy some!!

I enjoy cloth napkins, but now that I think about it... we only seem to use them when we have guests. I don't think that was always the case. Hmmm.

Your favorites are beautiful.

I don't think I have one in the house. Is that weird? :)

Nellie said...

Yes, we use cloth napkins. Better for the environment - not to mention the pocketbook.:-)

Yes, I am, and I have blue ones....hahaha. I use the old small one with the lace on them for hankies. Yep, I am so old I like hankies. They do not mess up the washer and dryer. Your white linen ones are magnificent. What I would give for those. And the red gingham...I love it. Great post. genie
