Abundance Through Frugality


I just had to show you these paper napkins that challenge my Dictum of 'Abundance Through Frugality'. In keeping with the theme, I was given only Six of them, instead of the whole packet.
I actually don't agree that frugal is an ugly word. I think it sounds much better than 'Tight' or 'lousy' or 'Tight wad' or 'tight arse' or possibly 'stingy'. 
'Frugal' reminds me of my Great Aunt Essie, who, like many women of her generation ,was an avid collector of string. Have I just ruined  yet another sentence by adding too many commas, I wonder?

No, just the right amount of commas.

I love Anne Taintor's stuff. I have several packets of napkins, as well as magnets and coasters.

Great napkins. I have a little mini collection of colorful napkins I use in mixed media pieces.
