My dear friend Lauren recently told me, of all people, “I have quite a collection of your beautiful linens that I never use! I don’t want them to get ruined.”
My response? “Give them back to me.” What’s the point of having beautiful things if you are too afraid to use them? Especially when these beautiful things were made to be used every day.
I suggested she set a beautiful table for a dinner party she was having, then dared her to LEAVE THE LINENS OUT after the party. Don’t tuck them away for the next event. Let tomorrow’s breakfast be your next special occasion.
Here is how we use Hen House everyday.
