I’m a great believer that ambience changes everything.
Tenements have been transformed by the addition of window boxes in all apartments. Planted out with beautiful flowers. Tended by the occupants.
Add a lick of paint to the front door.
And you have a change of attitude about where you live.
Tonight in my farmhouse is the night I iron my cloth napkins for the week.
Many moons ago I banned paper napkins. And plastic dishes. Other than refrigerator storage containers.
From my farmhouse.
We use cloth napkins, in napkin rings, every day. Breakfast. Lunch. And dinner.
And I iron them once a week.
