Gathering Inspiration From Vintage Hankies








While gathering thoughts and inspiration for Valentines Day I stopped by this site for a visit... http://www.nanaluluslinensandhandkerchiefs.com/


I thought you may enjoy a visit if you have thoughts of vintage hankies and ways of using them.... Great inspiration her. Vintage hankies do make lovely collectibles at affordable prices if you weren't offered any by grandma. I love the thought and pic on the site used as a collar for a hand tied wedding bouquet.. While finding inspiration from other remember a wonderful way to let some know why you love them is to write down and share with them all the reasons... Sometime we deserve and have need for a reminder that we are so special to someone else. Sometime spent with these thoughts can make your day special as it will to the person you are writing about.. It once again makes you realize how very fortunate you are to have these people in your life....

Hi Marietta~
I am happy to report, that after many attempts of trying to get on to your blog, my crazy computer has finally allowed me! :~D You have been chosen *the special one* this month!
Oh, that window valance in the first photo is so perfectly sweet! Wouldn't that be perfect in a little girls room?
I have several hankies from my grandmother and have wondered just what I could do with them besides keep them in a box. Thanks for the link ~ I am heading over there to see what else she does with them!
ttfn!

I've always had a soft spot for hankies. I remember getting new ones for Easter outfits (along with the little gloves and hat).
Hankies are one of those things I seek out when visiting an antique store, for most of the time prices are reasonable. I love white ones especially with lace trim, and of course those with pink roses.

Beautiful. Can I ask what kind of attachment did you use to hang the hankies?
