A Gift for me!

When G-Marie was here on Thanksgiving, she brought me a present:

20 half-round napkins folded to look like trees! She chose these fabrics because she felt they would match my Christmas plates. How right she is!

They are beautiful, and I really appreciate the work she put into them. I also appreciate that she made me 20 - yes, twenty! - so I'd have enough to not have to wash them every single night.

I'd never have even met G-Marie without Thor, and I'm truly sorry he didn't last long enough to give her a big Mastiff welcome. He'd have loved her.
Happy Thorsday, everyone! Only one more day until the weekend starts!

It was awkward not mentioning Thor in my Thanksgiving wishes to you and your family, {sigh}

Those napkins are picture perfect, Marjie. How sweet of G-Marie to make extras.

Thanks for sharing...and what a weekend it will be!!!

What a great gift......but is 20 actually enough?

The napkins go perfectly with your plates. What a great idea. I'll have to go look at my plates and see if I can find some coordinating fabric.

Beautiful napkins, but I still really love seeing Thor. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet him either.

Oh how I've missed Thorsdays. The napkins are beautiful and so clever - they match the plates perfectly!

I too am very sad to have not met your dear Thor. I hope to either find the substitute I need or buy a new printer so I can get the real gift to you.

How funny that I remembered exactly how your plates looked. g

Wow, there is a lot of work in making 20 napkins and the folding looks so pretty. Lucky lady. Diane

Looks like a pretty good match to me!

Funny how that works out, isn't it?

You have a great day!

Those napkins are fabulous!! Do you eat off your plates for the full month? Or just for Christmas day? I love unpacking mine and we eat off of them all month long. Mine are half snowmen and half reindeer and it makes me happy throughout the entire season every time I use them.
