Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!

These are my collection of Hankerchiefs, that all started with the first one being my grandmothers. It is stained because she dipped snuff, but it is a treasure just the same. When I was a child grandmother would fill a empty and cleaned ( I hope ) snuff can with cocoa and sugar for the me to play with. There was also a box of old clothing that we would play dress up . It was so much fun to pretent to be a grown up. I believe I still have one of her snuff cans and a picture of me and sister all dressed up. It was so much fun to come to the country and play.

it's a big shame that handkerchiefs went out of style....the all are so pretty and delicate. I think we should start a group to protect the endangered 'species'.

Great show n tell

I like the hankies, I remember
using them when I was very young.
I liked the valentines boxes of
goodies, great idea to use those
old heart boxes over again!
