A Gardenful of Handkerchiefs

A few days ago I went to a local antique store. This particular store always has the best vignettes and displays and is a wonderful place to get ideas for decorating at home.  One of the prettiest little scenes I came across was a table with an antique vase with a handkerchief  “stuffed” in it.  It gave me the inspiration for a “Gardenful of Hankies!”.  I starched some of my favorites, gathered my vases and “stuffed” the hankies inside…simple and easy!

I am linking this to Julia blog carnival at Hooked on Houses-Hooked on Fridays!  I hope to see you there.

Does anyone have a website where we can get ideas for sewing projects, using antique handkerchiefs. We are a group of ten ladies that make quilts and other hand sewn articles to sell as a fund raiser for a botanical garden in so. California.

What a cute idea! This would also look good for a tablescape centerpiece! I just came across a couple of valentine hankies in a thrift store. I'll have to keep this in mind for using them on Valentines Day.
