Vintage Hankies

The last couple of days multiple people told me about vintage hankies in the window of a thrift store in a neighboring town. This afternoon I finished a project earlier than I had expected and decided I could allow myself a treat. So, I headed out to the thrift store.

There were some difficulties - they didn't take debit cards and I didn't have enough cash with me. I was within walking distance of two banks - both were closed. Eventually I had to get in my car and drive around the block to go to a drive up ATM and then pay an extra $2.50 for the honor of getting my own money. I decided this was the cost of my lesson to carry some blank checks with me. As soon as I find some, I'll do that. (Who uses checks anymore? Who uses cash anymore for that matter?)

Anyway, I was motivated. And I got all my pretties.

In the process, I met someone who reads my column in Kansas Country Living. (It was nice to meet you, Annabeth!) I also found some other treasures including some orange carbon paper. That will be in an art project before long I'm sure.

It was a nice little break. Now I must get back to my projects. But, I had to share some of the pretties with you.

Often while I am holding hand fulls of hankies, doilies, dresser scarves or other vintage linens someone will ask me, "What do you do with them?"

The answer is, "I just love them."
