So Silky

So Silky

When the PM was a teenager, she couldn't get over the amount of things people put away for only "special occasions". Cabinets filled with dishware, linens and flatware that people took out once a year if that. So when she started collecting pottery and stoneware, she knew they would be used daily. She collected one place setting of stoneware each year in her twenties and that our everyday dishes. The everyday cutlery is silverware from the 1930's.

Normally we cats do not get to enjoy the finery as we are not served our stinky goodness on pottery dessert dishes nor is our water kept in a crystal bowl. They say though, patience is a virtue!

The MM's brother had taken a trip to Thailand a few years ago and brought the PM back a lovely tablecloth. The wee ones were too little then so the PM put it away. She has started using tablecloths again recently as the wee ones are now 4 and 6. She decided to use the one she had put away. She cleaned off the table, started laying the new one on when she left the room for about two minutes. When she came back this is what she saw.





I have to tell you, it beckoned me all the way across the room. It said "Banshee, come clean your drawers right here in the sunbeam".



It has a gorgeous fringe that looks kind of like my fur!



Thank you PM for spreading out some luxuries here in the woods.

Banshee you look beautiful on the Thai tablecloth. My mum agrees with your mom about not having the good stuff put away. Life is short, enjoy your good stuff every day!!

CCL Wendy said...

I agree with you, by the way, that pretty things are to be used and not just put away for "special" occasions. Banshee is just helping you get good use out of your new-but-old tablecloth! Breaking it in, so to speak. He sure enhances it by adding his purrticular scent and leaving traces of his fur. Pretty soon you won't be able to tell the diffurence between the fringe and himself!

A cat simply cannot resist a covering, now can we?

Cliff and Olivia said...

That's a very nice table cloth and it fits you like a dream. You should claim it for naps and grooming!

LizzyBean said...

That table cloth looks like it was made for you! Tell your mom that I sometimes get sad about my little one being a big girl now -- nearly 9! I look back and can't believe how little she was. But, as I'm sure she knows, every age has it's joys! I collect ironstone china too, mostly odd serving pieces.

MaoMao said...

Oh, Banshee! What cat could resist such finery? The only thing that could make the tablecloth even more beautiful, would be your furs all over it:)

quiltcat said...

Hi Banshee. That is a really beautiful cloth and the only thing that makes it more beautiful is you laying in the middle of it in a sunbeam!

How could you resist knowing she put it out for you ;-)
