Vintage Valentine Hanky Collection

Hello there.  How are you?  I've missed you all.  Feeling lots better.  I've been getting out the valentine hearts.


These are all vintage hankies.  The graphics on these are all so sweet.  Little hearts and flowers, bows and butterflies. 


Some are embroidered.


They are all so much fun to
find and collect.


This kinda reminds me of a kaleidoscope.  A hanky kaleidoscope.
 Oooh I like the sound of that.


I never met a valentine hanky I didn't love.

Your red & white hankies look fabulous all together! I still remember bringing a clean hankie to school with me every day. With everybody going green, we may be going back to using hankies instead of kleenex. You better hide yours!

Doni said...

Danielle those are so festive and pretty! I remember having a few of those and carrying coins for my Sunday School offering tied up in them each week! That was when I wore white shoes and frilly dresses...and my Grandmother went with us. Those were the days! Thanks for the memory and for sharing those for P&L Thursday!
Blessings,
Doni

I am so in love with the colour red right now, it's sort of funny for a neutral loving girl like me. Your collection of vintage hankies is darling! I love how you have them displayed.

Stop by to enter my TEA THEMED giveaway, if you wish. Have yourself a great night.


Ciao bella.

Remember going must of my childhood with a pretty embroydered handkerchief stuffed up my sleeve. Oh l hated that bump on my arm, but mum insisted l had it there and not wipe my nose directly on my sleeve (of course l did anyway). Love your pretty handkerchiefs, so beautifully made. Might take mine out today and have a peep...now l keep them in a pretty box and not up my sleeve ;-) blessings Pam xx
