Okay, back to napkins.
On a recent podcast, Kelly from My Soulful Home mentioned she was going to start using her cloth napkins at dinner time. A little bell went off in my head as I remembered that I used to use cloth napkins on a regular basis around our kitchen table too but somehow got out of the habit.
I love a crisp napkin on my table. And yes, a new one every day.
Here are just one of my napkin drawers…
Yes, they are neatly stored but I only use them occasionally! So they sit… and sit… and sit… until I set a fancy table. And I love these napkins! They have been culled from a huge pile. These are the ones that made the cut! So why am I not using them?
It took my fabulous co-host to remind me and inspire me to make a habit of using cloth napkins!
So I moved some napkins here…
I cleaned out a long drawer near my breakfast nook table and put our placemats there plus a bunch of blue and white napkins.
Did you notice that these napkins are not ironed? They went straight from the dryer and were folded and put in this drawer. What a simple pleasure. A grace note in my busy day! Nothing fussy or hard, just pretty and simple.
When these napkins are ready to be washed I’ll just throw them in with my medium colored wash. Easy peasy!
How about you? I bet you have lots of napkins just waiting to be used every day! Let’s use them and enjoy what we have. Let’s make every day just a little more special!
Now that’s PRACTICALLY SPEAKING!
