It is a gloriously beautiful day, and I'm in the mood for some fresh, Springy activities! I scored some lovely hankies recently, and got the urge to give them a wash and a quick press, and set up a fun photo shoot out in the courtyard. I suppose I am really a frustrated photo stylist at heart, because the desire for the photos came before the idea to wash the darn things. But I think of all the images I've seen in magazines, with the fresh linens fluttering on the line and so forth, and I wanted my own little piece of that. Plus I get to use my teensy clothespins again and you know how much I love that! Woohoo!
I can't get over the amount of work that went into these. Isn't it wild to think of how ladies (and gents) used to always carry a handkerchief? But I am glad they did, because now there are so many wonderful ones out there, just waiting to be bought for a song. Like this one...
So there you have it! A little hanky panky in the garden! ;o)
ps - I use Vintage Soak for the various linen items I've accumulated. It is amazing!
