You might remember me posting about it a few posts ago.
I choice what appeared to be best match for what I was doing, as I wasn't putting dishes on the table. This is the 2nd or 3rd from the end of the video, as I recall. Pockets for your silverware. I only added a spoon that day, as we were having chili for dinner and only a spoon was needed.
Even though I didn't find or use the Thanksgiving Placemats, I was happy with these very fall like placemats. LOVE the colors. Plus my flowers from work for my birthday were indeed a good match color wise.
We did not do Thanksgiving at my house, we went to my older brothers. Believe there were 19 of us for the feast. Hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday and enjoyed special time with friends and family.

I'm not a person that really does much about birthdays. My family really never was. We're not big card buyers, or gift givers; so it's unusual for me to even post about it.......but hey with pretty flowers and funny card....just thought I'd share.
Are you big on celebrating birthdays? Do you buy cards for others?
Hubby is taking me out for a nice steak dinner ...and I had a lovely massage earlier today.
So, yeah I'm getting older. As old as Dirt; but life is good.

The family dinner table is an important part of family life. Sadly though it seems many families don't sit at the dinner table together as much as they did when I was a kid, or even as much as we did when my own daughter was a child. Many experts say that's a key thing missing in today's society and family structure. Kids are busy with school and related sports activities and families eat on the go. But, perhaps with the holidays approaching setting a nice table and sitting together as a family can be achieved.
My husband and I always eat in the dining room, except for Friday night which is traditionally pizza night at our house. That night we sit in front of the boob tube. I always use cloth napkins. They're more environmentally friendly for one, and I like the feel of them over paper napkins. I've not yet tried these folds, or anything beyond folding flat or rolling; but plan to. I wonder if the napkins need to be fairly new so they're sorta stiff?
Do you use cloth napkins? Have you tried these or other pretty/cute folds? Do you eat at the dining room table? Leave me your thoughts in the comments below.
This blog has been in moth balls for a while and I'm hoping to fix that. I recently re-charged my travel blog, Traveling Suitcase, where I'm currently blogging about a wonderful trip to Ireland and Scotland. I've managed to keep my charity blog, Bridge and Beyond, current. But, back to napkins, I always pack cloth napkins when hubby and I travel domestically. We stay in condo's/timeshares so do the bulk of our meals in.
