Cheery Cherry Placemats



At Michael's I bought a set of six paper cherry placemats by Mary Engelbreit. I love cherries. I hope you do, too.
I brought them to an educational store to have them laminated into one big sheet of plastic placemats. When I brought them to my car the wind took hold and my son yelled like it was the greatest thing ever.
At home I wiped the table of crumbs- even the ones under the flowers, cut out the placemats and put them on the table.
Pretty easy, even for the laziest among you. I think there were other placemats to choose from if you don't like cherries (gasp).
Placemats: $1.00
Laminating: $1.25 (.25 a foot)
Welcoming of Spring: Priceless

Oh looks like Spring at Freckled Hen's house! Love your new banner! So you! Kiss the kids and a big hello to hubby. I recently cut-out fabric placemats/napkins for Spring. Hope to make them before next winter. LOL.

OH, one of our blogging friends has wallpaper in her kitchen that looks just like those placemats! I wish I could remember who it was.

Lazy...Hmmmm....Am I the only one who felt that comment directed at me? I can indeed do that. If I'm not too lazy to buy the supplies, but since I'm imminently cheap, it should be a good fit for me!

Hey, I gave you an award. Go to my blog and check it out...

And who doesn't love, love, LOVE cherries! I think you would have to be evil to not like something as cheery as a cherry!

An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a colleague who was conducting a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me dinner simply because I stumbled upon it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this matter here on your internet site.
