Do you remember the movie, You've Got Mail? In one scene, Kathleen has to explain what a hankie is to a young girl. Kathleen still carries a cotton hankie that her mother gave her, and her initial was embroidered on it with a Daisy because Daisies were Kathleen's favorite flower. Yes I know I am way too into that movie. It is one of my absolute favorites. Well when my sis in law, Mina, and I were going through a few more of Mama G's things that were in storage at Mina's house, we hit the motherland of hankerchiefs.
I volunteered to bring them home, wash them and iron them and mail one to each granddaughter and great granddaughter. So that was my housework for today. Some could not be saved but most were great after a wash with OxyClean.
I thought you might enjoy seeing some of these antiques.
I wrote a note to all the recipients explaining that these had belonged to their GiGi and I hoped they would use them and remember her.
