I did it!


Do you remember this little DIY post I mentioned back in July? Well, I finally got around to doing it this past weekend and I'm really happy with it. The hardest part was deciding which hankies to frame. I ironed and tested out a couple dozen but these six made the cut! I bought the frames here.

And P.S. The big cross pillows on my daybed are from Liane at Enhabiten. They are amazing and stuffed with all-natural kapok. If you are looking for some comfy throw pillows she makes some really nice things!

Notice how they are expertly spaced and leveled. :)

I totally remember that post, Duff--in fact, I was looking at my grandma's old Scottie dog-embroidered tea towels yesterday and thinking of your post. I love how this turned out! I am all inspired now.

Oh, the handkerchiefs! They look beautiful! They're the perfect, vibrant color scheme to go with the bedspread!

I really love how you've placed the pop of red in the middle.

What a great idea - it looks tremendous! I've always wondered what I can do with the pretty hankies I've collected :)

Beautiful work. It's hard to get the right tone of matched mis-matchiness — varied colors and patterns that don't "match" but go together nicely. You did it, though, as you said! :)
