I went op-shopping this morning and found 11 crisp white serviettes with this pretty handwork. They were hardly used or very well looked after. This exact thing has been on my wish-list for ages so for $4.99 they were mine! Out with the paper serviettes and bring back the real thing!
When we got home I was folding them up and James arrives at the scene and says "Oh mum, are those napkins?" (how terribly proper of him). "Let's set the table, and don't forget, napkins to the left of the plate" Seriously??? Where did he get that from?
When I told him he could only set the table at dinner time, he replied "oh okay, I'll just keep an eye on them".
And I found 2 big pieces of fabric, 5 metres of the blue and white and 2 metres of the grey stripe. The blue stripe will be sewn into Summer pyjamas and the grey stripe will be a beach bag or something. $4 for the lot.
