Cheerful Cloth Napkins and a Giveaway So You Can Have Some Too

Sometimes the simplest things can make you happy.

 Like 20 year old cloth napkins stolen from your mother.

 Or actually using all those vintage handkerchiefs for something.

 Trading seeds for napkins on etsy is also nice.

 As is receiving kitchy gifts in the mail from Rosa.

 Matching dishes with napkins is strangely satisfying.

Gillian of Craftzilla agrees and she’s whipped up these charming summertime cloth napkins for one of my readers. Simply visit her new etsy shop and then come back here and share either what you like best in her shop or one of your simple summer pleasures.  Like napkins, or mismatched spoons.  Don’t forget to include your email or twitter handle so we can find you if you win. We’ll pick a winner at random on Friday September 2nd, 2011.

    One of my favourite summer pleasure is eating outdoors in my backyard garden. And when I eat outdoors, I use cloth napkins of course, so these napkins would surely be put to good use. dmhaen on twitter and dmhaen at gmail dot com

    I love the strawberry print napkins. My grandmother had a couch in a similar print back in the late 70s. The napkins are a much better use of the fabric. :)

    I love the strawberry print napkins too! They are awfully pretty and almost match my apron. My favourite summer pleasure this year is my garden. We really went for it and are reaping the benefits and have enough to share. It tickles me, really!

    We love eating fruit straight from the vine in our garden. Yum! That's a terrific summer pleasure. Beautiful napkins to clean up would be a bonus.

    I love chasing my kids around with the hose! It's not a high-brow sort of pleasure, but hearing them laugh takes me right back to when I was a kid! twitter me at @m0psy

    I love the picnic basket too! Eating my lunch on the lawn at summerschool is one of my simple summer pleasures! Its usually too chilly to do that once the school year starts

    I love her Strawberry Cloth Napkins.So cute! I do have a simple summer pleasure. Outdoor BBQ's or picnic's. Cloth napkins are they way to go instead of disposable napkins.
