So sticking with tradition, I decided that I needed a few more small items to add to my table decorations. As a child I remember helping my grandmother fold up her freshly pressed table linens & napkins and place them with tenderness, in drawer after a special family meal. Those sweet memories have caused me to LOVE cloth napkins and use them regularly in my home. So, I went to my favorite online fabric store... aka PHAT QUARTERS and picked out my favorite blue print, and my favorite red print. The winners were:
I used a half yard of each print and this tutorial, "DIY Dinner Napkins" on Craftsy, to get beautiful mitered corners on my 4 new Americana cloth napkins. I folded my new pretties up and placed them out on my kitchen table.
I have this old window hanging above my kitchen table and normally I have some sort of wreath hanging at its' center. I wanted to change things up a bit, yet was at a lose of what to make. Then I saw this post on Instagram from one of my favorite creative minds Cheri Lehnow of Tinkerellen and I knew I wanted to do something with Buck Forest Night by AGF and a touch of Americana!
I have plans to add more details to my Uncle Buck this summer, but only time will tell if I can come even halfway close to what Cheri can do. But seriously, how fun is this guy!
I hope you have enjoyed your time with us today! Be sure to check out the other stops on this great tour that Katy of Thread & Grain has put together. See you next time.
