I washed these pretty hankies yesterday ~ they were very clean to begin with, but they iron better when they are a bit damp. It doesn't take long to give them a quick press. They are so pretty!



Lots of lace and embroidery is this group ~ pretty for summer weddings



This one is by far the most detailed.



I love the tone on tone ~ pink and white ~ below


The tiny roses and lace detail make this one special



The organdy petals are actually appliqued to the lace for a 3D effect. Neat!



Cider says "Hello" and thank you for all the well wishes : )



Have a great weekend !

Oh Cider, I just want to hug your neck. Such a sweet face. Those are so elegant and beautiful. Have a good weekend.

Hello Cider! That is such a sweet face!

The hankies and linens are lovely! I spray mine with Lavender Linen Spray from Crabtree & Evelyn when I iron them. It really takes out the wrinkles and leaves a wonderful scent:)

Blessings,

Kim

Glad you are doing better sweet Cider. It has taken a while hasn't it. Ben sends you a big woof and hopes you are ALL better soon.

What gorgeous hankies. So much prettier than the 'tissues' I tend to use these days :)

Hi: Your vintage bridal hankies are just beautiful! I collect vintage handwork and use some in my work as a papermaker. So, with probably about 500 pieces of collected lace/linens myself, you can imagine how much I have enjoyed viewing your collection this morning. Thanks for sharing. Rosalind

It's nice to see Cider out of the cone! What a face!

Karen, those hankies are absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I love the hairpin lace one, too! Very extravangant hankies! :)

Hi Karen...
Hope you enjoyed the long weekend! Looks like you had nice weather...today we froze! Cold, rainy...going down to -1C tonight.

Beautiful hankies...so delicate and pretty.

And Cider...what a doll! Love that sweet face.

Have a great week!
Hugs, Nancy
