Napkins

Pin It Now!

I finally won a bid on eBay for some linen & lace napkins. I love them and the best part is they were only $11.99 including shipping for 9 napkins. I can't believe I was the only person who bid on these!
Today it's supposed to be 84 degrees here. Everyone was commenting yesterday how nice the weather is. I can't stand it because to me it should be cool in November!

I went to the flea market yesterday and I took my camera so I'll have some pictures to share with you this week. I only bought a few small things...pictures of those to come later also.

I'm going to finish stripping my tiered table today and I'm making a birthday gift for my mom so I better get off the computer now and get busy!

Very pretty napkins ... a very good buy, indeed! And I agree ... I think it should be cold in November too! (I live in Northern Cal too)! What flea market did you go to yesterday? I am always looking for a good one. You know about Alameda, right? It's the first Sunday of the month (today actually) and there is one up in Sacramento that is the second Sunday of the month. I went there once and really enjoyed it! Have a great day!

These are just fabulous, Cindy. And...such a great buy. I just love it when I find something on ebay that no one else has seen yet and I get the item for a really great price. That's when we start loving eBay again! lol

Hi Cindy,

Happy Sunday! Wow, these are lovely, and perfect for you. With the blue on them they were calling your name. Glad you got such a good deal on them. Can't wait to see that pretty table all done. Bet it will be beautiful. It's chilly here in central NJ. Not freezing yet like sometimes it is by this time in Nov. Please share your treasures when you have time.

Oh, Cindy, those napkins are beautiful! Congratulations! I'm sure the table will be gorgeous when it's done. Can't wait to see it...We're finally getting fall-like weather here in NJ, thank God. I can't stand 84 in November either. Have a great weekend!
xoxo,
Mary

Hi Cindy, I've been looking out for napkins over here for you, I don't think the craze has caught on here yet, I think the ones you found are perfect though, looking forward to your flea market photos

Those are so pretty and your color blue! I'm always amazed when I'm the only bidder for things. Usually I get outbid so it's a rare thing indeed.

Ahhhh, I just knew you'd find something else on eBay that was a better deal! It usually works that way for me when I lose an auction...like it's "meant to be." And in my opinion, these are prettier with the blue. Congratulations.

It's a beautiful day here in Tampa Bay, Florida (upper 70's). I have the air conditioner off and all the windows open. I'm having a hard time getting my Sunday chores done because all I want to do is sit on the front porch swing and bask in the gloriousness of the day. I'd be perfectly content if it stayed like this all year long!

Isnt it fabulous when you grab a bargain on ebay like that. I did it last night with a Kruger rose print in a mirror frame. No one else bid on that either! Gorgeous napkins!!

Those are so beautiful! I love buying linens on ebay but I had to stop for awhile because I was a bad girl! Looking forward in seeing your pictures form the flea market.

Cindy,
I think the napkins are prettier than the other ones... that touch of blue is so prefect for you.
I had First Monday this weekend so I'm done in. It's so fun to shop the flea markets... but its also fun to sell your items at them. Can't wait to see what you found.

I think I almost bid on those!!! I was looking for some German lace linens and am pretty sure those are the ones I saw. I figured I better stick with lace curtains for now though. I'm glad you got them!!

Cindy, Those napkins are so beautiful, very feminine. I have to admit, I'm loving our Northern California weather. No air conditioner, no heater. It's perfect for me! Cheryl

Sometimes you are very lucky. Can't understand either that nobody but you bid on these. They are lovely.
Hope your weather gets back to more "normal" as we have here in Sweden. It's grey, windy and cooooold!! Brrr!!
Love Elzie

You really scored! I can't believe you were the only one to bid. The napkins are gorgeous!

I am in the SoCal high desert and I'm loving the fall weather. Gives me time to get some things done, before the cold sets in . . . It's hot as h*ll, here in the summer and gets pretty cold in the winter. In the Spring the wind blows.
