It's time for me to confess my addiction to you. No, I don't drink too much....I don't drink anything stronger than chocolate milk...which, by the way, is one of my addictions - just not the one I was going to talk to you about today.
I am addicted to beautiful napkins. At last count, I have over 73 white napkins. Now that might seem like a bit much to you, but I can't not buy them when I pay a dollar or less for each one. Each one is a thing of beauty. Everyone feels special when you give them a cloth napkin.
Now this fetish is probably from my childhood. We use to go to a cafeteria type restaurant when I was a kid. You could either get a paper napkin or cloth, but I never got to choose the cloth ones because they charged for those.
Having this many napkins has come in handy. We used them for my daughter's bridal shower and others have borrowed them for parties. I also have a lot of tablecloths but not near as many. These are items that I just can't afford to buy new if I could even find these beautiful , delicate linens. Most of these napkins need to be ironed but I learned to iron on napkins and dad's handkerchiefs so even something about that can bring a smile to my face.
I was reading a article about being green the other day and they were saying to put a cloth napkin in your childs lunch box.....once again ...if we were just a bit more like our mothers our planet would be a bit better.
Do you have napkins you never use? Get them out and throw one in the lunch box...what are you saving it for?
