I'm rich









I purchased a giant ziplock baggie full of vintage handkerchiefs the other day. They looked awfully pretty from what I could see through the plastic and, well, who wouldn't want a gallon bag full of ladies hankies? It turns out that they are the softest, most beautiful hankies in the world. I ended up with about thirty and each one is just lovely. Looking at them on my Jean Jean Vintage desk, I just feel rich! So much beauty in such a small pile!

I just love handkerchiefs. I have some of my great-grandmother's, and I've also taken to collecting them when I travel.

Ooh, these are lovely. Judging from the prints they look like older pieces, 30's maybe.
