This morning I happened upon this great vintage DIY movie. Now, I love a DIY, but a vintage DIY!? That's even better. This old movie is genius! It might take me a few more viewings to figure out exactly what she is doing, but I love the concept!
Your probably not surprised that I have a vintage hanky collection. I think I got most of them at an auction, once, but I love them so much, and actually use them when I have a runny nose etc. Summer is the perfect time for hankies. I will be toting one in my clutch to both weddings this summer(I get teary eyed at weddings), and keep one in my purse for when the heat just gets the better of me and I need the sweat wiped from my brow, or when my allergies are particularly bad and I can't stop sneezing!
There are so many practical uses for them it makes me wonder why we still use paper tissues. I love that they are environmentally friendly, but pretty too. So many embroidered ones out there that could be put to use. Next time your thrifting pick up a few! Or even better make your own with fabric scraps or inexpensive linens...personalize them with an embroidered monogram, the possibilities are endless!
