Hollywood Household Hints: Ginny Simms | Weekly feature

"Ginny Simms is building a new house out in the valley north of Hollywood, and - like any good housewife - is engaged in handwork for the new place. Her current effort is a set of gay luncheon mats made of heavy cotton, each mat edged with cotton beading. Through the beading, Ginny is running bright rickrack, a different color for each mat."

  1. Hello there, dear Lindsay!
    Thank you ever so much for sharing these wonderful articles, they will truly come in hand, one day (hopefully soon) when I move into my own... oups, that's a secret. :)

    Another thing:


  2. That sounds lovely - place mats are too often overlooked both a restaurants (save for the cheap paper variety - and even they aren't all that common any more) and at home these days. I have sets of various colours and styles and set one of them almost anytime I'm serving food at our dining table.

    1. I actually don't have any, but I am searching for the perfect set. Though what I have in mind is nowhere to find. Perhaps it should encourage me to try and make my own!
