A Girls Afternoon Out
Over the weekend Miss Bonnie and I decided we needed a little "girls afternoon out," so off we went. One of our favorite places to go is the old antique mall in the downtown area. I'm telling you, you could spend hours there just exploring! We always leave with some little "treasure" that we just "had to have," and this time was no exception! Miss Bonnie found an apron that was reversible. One side was used for when you were cooking and the other side when you were serving! She also found this antique powder box she will use for hair accessories.
Most of you know how much I love handerchiefs. I love using them, I love giving them as little "I'm thinking of you" gifts, I use them as you would use a doilie, and I am in the process of making a table runner.It really makes a nice presentation when given as a gift. I tie a satin ribbon around the hankie and then add either a little sachet or a pretty little flower. Very little effort to let someone know I care and I was thinking of them. I guess little by little I am trying to "bring back the hankie!" To me they represent a kindler, gentler time when femininity was celebrated and attention to detail was important. When I walked into the store the owner said, "it's the hankie lady!" Need I say more?? LOL
