I have a wee bit of a thing for vintage handkerchiefs. The odd thing, is that I hate to do anything with them! I feel like if I cut them up, they are gone forever, never to be used for anything else ever again. I just hoard them :). I am the same way with certain fabric. I have those “special” yards just waiting to be used, but every time I go to use them, I get a little anxiety and reach for something else. I know, serious issues! So I have had this bag full of vintage hankies, just waiting for the perfect project to present itself, and finally an anxious-free way to show them off! I came across these engagement photos where they had just tied the ends, perfect!
A fun and easy way to add a little whimsy. Now when I am tired of using them this way, I can just untie them and use for something else…phew :).
Okay, now I need a little advice. Do you have long curtains in your toddlers rooms? I had this vision of flowing pretty white curtains to finish off Eleni’s room, and it has recently been replaced with images of she and her brother swinging from them. Am now leaning towards a simple panel valance. What do you think? I have two cute vintage pillowcases I could cut up and use that are in the same color family. Again this might bring on a little anxiety :), I have only been hanging on to these ones for, oh…over a year. Ish.Ewes.
Your insight would be great, I think after that I will be just about done!
