every time we go up north I try to swing into my favorite antique shop. Although I easily get overwhelmed because there is so much stuff and everything is old…I can usually score a few good textiles. And I was so happy to bring home these little guys. I love handkerchiefs, mostly because I use them. But I like knowing I have something pretty tucked away in my pocket or purse. I also like the idea of having something lovely to look at when I may be sad or need a little pick me up. I enjoy nicely colored ones because who wants a white one that well, isn’t going to stay white. I loved the scalloped edges of the yellow roses & besides I’m totally on a yellow kick these days. I had to have the color palate of this one, and of course it’s like a moth to a fame when it comes to turquoise & orange. But I think I’m going to use that in a different craft project I have in the works.
