new kitchen napkins

my sister Abby lives in a beautiful 100 year old Portland home.

I was the first family member to visit after they bought it and I remember telling her "it's original in all the ways you want a 100 year old house to be original and modern in all the ways you want a 100 year old house to be modern" and it was, except for the kitchen.

after a few years of living in the house the redid the kitchen this fall and it is beautiful. I you need a picture here to really understand how awesome this turned out.
