In the thirty six years we have been married Mr angel and I have had four sets of placemats!!
Our first ones were these!!! They were a wedding present, and I loved them!!!
We had them for years!
Then they started to wear out: in fact they were worn out, but I found it difficult to get rid of them!!
I decided that they just had to go, so I retired them, well gave them a funeral really - into the bin!!
I thought it would be a good idea to buy some clear glass ones!!
Easy to keep clean, went with everything as they were clear glass!
They were fine at first, then they started to chip, and got little sharp edges, and the little buffer pads on the bottom stuck to the mat underneath, pulling them off and making it difficult to get them out of the drawer!!!
After several battles, they went in the bin!!!
Then I found these, and again we've had them for years!!!
But lately they have started to wear out and the coating is coming loose!!
They followed the glass ones to the bin!!!
What do you think??
