I hope you are having as nice a Spring day as I am. 80 today, a bit windy but that stops about 9 A:M. The flowers are Four O`Clocks. They are usually closed during the day. I was very happy to find this bunch still wide awake!
Pictured below is part of my Vintage Handkerchief Collection. In the 1950`s and earlier ladies always had a hanky in their handbag. Gloves and hankies finished your outfit.
The pale pink hanky is cotton and linen. Notice the applique and drawnwork in the corners and hand rolled hems. The small white cotton example has cross stitch flowers in one corner and a pretty embroidered nylon trim. Then we have a sheer hanky with daffodil bouquets and scalloped, rolled hems. The next sheer hanky is decorated with flocked daisies and also has a scalloped and rolled hem. The only hanky that is used is the small white one. I plan to frame a few of these.
Wishing everyone a great day,
