Spring napkins


I'm going to be hosting a little luncheon, and rather than turn to the grocery or party store for typical paper napkins, I decided to make some myself.  It really couldn't have been simpler.


I sorted through my stash of favorite fabrics and vintage linens.  I chose spring-y dots, flowers and ginghams and then cut 15.5" x 15.5" squares.  I hemmed all four sides, and was done!  So easy.  Ten napkins in about an hour?  Awesome.


I like how none of them match and will look just perfect with my thrifted, mismatched china.  I think a table runner or tablecloth may be in the works next.



And of course I have to say happy birthday to this guy.


Without him, I wouldn't be leading such a pretty cool life.  Happy birthday, Puppy!
