One of the problems with having to have a bit of a clear out before moving is that I keep finding things that I'd forgotten I own and then spend ages looking and playing with them. Tonight's find were these old handkerchiefs that I think belonged to my Gran.
I fully admit that the white one on the left is a tad dusty and could do with a good wash, but despite the grey sheen it's beautiful all the same. The embroidery on the middle one adds a lovely splash of colour to an otherwise plain household item that many women like my Gran would have always had in their pocket.
The final hankie has a slightly kitsch look about it but is still adorable in its own way.
The only problem with finding things like this is that it really slows down the clean out process!
