Things in my House that Make me Smile

Yesterday, I came across the little hankie I carried on our wedding day.
It was toward the bottom...toward the back...
of a drawer in my dresser in our bedroom.
Such sweet flowers.
Such sweet scallops.
And you all know the tradition...
Something old,
Something new,
Something borrowed,
Something blue.
This was my grandmother's hankie.
It is a soft powder blue.
It brings a smile to my face.

Take care,

love it. I have a hankie from my grandma {somewhere} and I desperately wanted to carry it on my wedding day, but I could not find it anywhere! I know it's tucked in somewhere, but I still to this day have never found it. :( Maybe I'll locate it before my future daughter gets married....hopefully!

Thanks for sharing your sweet memory with us. Maybe you could pass it down to one of your girls on their wedding day.

Very cool hankie!
My husband's grandmother made the one I carried when we got married...she made the lace on the edges...I think it is called tatting. Before she passed away at 94 she made two that I put away for my daughter's future weddings :)

Happy Back to School- 171 days to go here!
