Four Hundred Twenty-One and Counting

I collect white linen napkins. I've got some heirlooms and a lot from the swap. They require ironing, which is probably why many people don't want them anymore, but I love the ironing part, too. With starch. Today, I'm ironing the latest batch from the swap - 29 lovely large napkins with beautiful woven patterns, some matching. I use them when company comes for dinner, primarily, but have decided to use them when it is just us, too. Visual and tactile elegance - a special treat at the end of a hectic day.


  1. We should talk...I know where there are more of these :)
