Special delivery! A relative of Tony, Mavis Pierson, sent me a box plumb full of handkerchiefs that she had. I was delighted by the variety as I went through them!
Mavis included a note so that I would know some of the history behind them. She said some were from the 1950’s when it was customary for people to give a handkerchief in a graduation card. (that or a dollar) She also said that many came in the mail since they were so easy to send that way.
Before I saw them, I thought I’d use them in some sort of patchwork, but I’m not so sure now. They hold such dainty charm–it would be hard to make them into anything else.
