This post to some will appear very random and a little odd, but I wanted to share with you my love of the humble hankie. Whilst ironing them (yes I do iron hankies!) it occured to me that I've quite a collection and some are so old and not even worth using!
My earliest memory of having a hankie was in primary school. I had a little brown case I used to take which could only fit my knitted cardigan in and of course my hankie. Unfortunately most of my original ones have either been lost or got too old, but I do have a couple which are not standing the test of time and you can't use if you have bad cold! I have to carry a hankie wherever I go, but not up my sleeve - how many grannies still have their tissue or hankie tucked up their sleeve. Mine used to have her's tucked into her watch!
Anyway here's 2 oldies - faded and holey...
These hankies were bought in Liberty's many years ago and they are still as crisp as the day I first had them
Children print hankies
More floral ones
Last but by no means least, my vintage boxed ones
