Apparently I own a boatload of vintage handkerchiefs. I do not understand how this happened, since I promised I wasn't going to buy any more. I did talk myself into buying these at the thrift store Wednesday, though. Actually, I think I had promised I wouldn't get carried away at an auction bidding on vintage handkerchiefs, as I had in the past.
And I would only buy ones that were in perfect condition. Or one little bath in Oxy Clean away from perfection. Listen, if a newly appointed senator can have multiple versions of how exactly he got to be a newly appointed senator, I surely am allowed to revise my recollection of vintage handkerchief purchase rules.
Wednesday's purchase included the classic crocheted butterfly hankie.
A collection of dainty chiffon hankies with flocked flowers.
Pretty pink flowers.
And some lovely lavender blossoms.
Wednesday's haul of hankies
forced inspired me to look through some of the other handkerchiefs I've accumulated, which I had justified purchasing by saying I'd sell them. I'm really trying to get better about that. So I guess I'll be parting with the most perfect springtime handkerchief ever. Maybe.
And this set of round hankies with flowers and ribbons.
And these - all the same pattern, but in different colors. Maybe.
