Didn't matter where I went when I was a young girl, school, Sunday school, sport, wherever, Mum always put a pretty little floral hankie in our pocket. I had heaps of them. My Nanna also gave as a new hankie every birthday and Christmas with a 20 cent piece tied in it. We thought it was the best. As I got older and my nose 'ran like a tap' whenever I had a cold, I just grabbed Dad's handkerchiefs. Not very feminine but did the job. I just happened to stumble across all these beautiful pins on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago but just never got around to posting this. They're just beautiful. My daughter has some hankies but I'm on the look out for some more from op shops just to make a few of these lovely things.
