Vintage Hankie








Sharing is an inspiration.....whether you start with something fresh or revise something or a object you have seen that you imagine taken a step farther.... It is so enjoying to use a inherited item or a market or antique find.... I have been making the doily envelopes and tucking Valentines in them and had a hankie sitting near by and thought why not.... So simple. I have shown you a simple step by step above... This would be a lovely gift for a friend or family or of course yourself.... I used a clip earring for my bling but a vintage brooch would make a wonderful gift.... This little gift shows simplicity and elegance....... Little inspiration ideas help you turn your house into a warm and welcoming home with allot of interest and personal charm.
