I LOVE to collect vintage hankies! I have a huge drawer full of them that I replenish often because I love to give them to others...daughters, granddaughters, sisters & friends.
Here is a lovely vintage "Mother" hankie in honor of
my sweet Mother Gloria Mae.

My dear friend Ann (Anne Fannie of Green Acres) made a darling "hankie curtain" for her bright & cheery laundry room! Maybe she will share a picture with us on her blog! (hint Ann!)

why of course I collect Hankies,,,doesn't everyone? lol!
I have quit the stash, and can hardly wait to show them to you when you come visit.
I collect them like a dryer collects lint! haha! then I hand launder them & rinse them in lavender water.
I also carry a hankie in my hand bag, as my mother always said, "A proper young lady always carries a hankie". I don't know if I am proper, but I do carry a hankie.

Oh Gracie, I carry my hankies everywhere to! A pocket in my apron, my jeans, my purse, you name it! Ask my kids & grandkids, they will tell you "yes, she does!" I never use a tissue anymore. I even have some western ones for our Sisters on the Fly outings! heehee! Maryjane xo

That is such a beautiful handkerchief! I have so many of them, that I have to sneak new ones into the house so my dh doesn't see them. I do use them, for things other than their original purpose. Although, they do come in handy for that too.

Hi Maryjane, Oh yes I love hankies too. I have a huge collection of them and I use them for gifts also, I make sachets and Victorian Crackers from them. I also have my bathroom valance done with them. I will be doing a blog post on my bath in a month or so and you can see it then. Have you ever seen the quilt book called Hankie Pankie? It's adorable, I'm working on a quilt from that book. What a great post!!!
Blessings,
Shirl

I don't collect them but I have 3 from when I was a little girl! I'm saving them for something. Not sure what! Any suggestions on how to display them?

Hi, Maryjane! I'm Holly and i'm enjoying the beauty of your blog. Yes, I collect hankies, too. Like Shirl, I also have some hanging for my bathroom valance. I used to have more but they were lost in a move. "They" say that 3 moves equal a fire... Well, if that's the case then i've had a few fires! Ha!

Have a wonderful day!
