Ladies' Hankies (Pkg. of 12)
I really enjoyed these hankies as well my mother. I divided them between us both. I bought the white ones so they could be used in church. My Mom was very tickled to get these on Mom's day, and they are so hard to find in my area--let alone pretty ones.

12 exactly alike hankies???
I've been buying these hankies for years. The last order needed replacing, after years of use. So, I ordered a set of assorted embroidered ladies hankies.
Assorted?? NOT. All identical. What a disappointment!
Back they go; now where am I going to get my pretty, ASSORTED, hankies?

Passing on the Tradition
My mother gave my sister and I a hankerchief in our Christmas stocking every year. Once we moved out of the house, she continued the tradition by making sure there was a small box to open with a new hankerchief to add to our collection. My mom passed away very unexpectedly last November. Christmas came and there wasn't a box to open from my Mother with a hankerchief and we didn't even think about it at the time. But this year, I'm starting the tradition with my own daughter. It is something that belongs with Christmas; Mom and daughter bonding over their annual Christmas hankerchiefs.

A Hankering for Hankies
My niece got married in June 2012 and at the last minute we realized we had forgotten to buy the cloth handkerchief which we traditionally gift each bride in our family with to carry down the aisle. It was my job to find one and get it to the church on time. There were none to be found except at the local wedding shop where I ended up paying a ridiculous price for one.
I learned my lesson. With another niece's wedding planned for September 2012, I was thrilled to learn that Vermont Country Store carries just what I needed at a more than reasonable price. Not only was I able to get a beautiful handkerchiefâI ordered the 12-pak white on whiteâfor niece number two, but I have also begun enclosing one of these lovely cloth handkerchiefs in sympathy cards. And, of course, I've put some of them aside for my own use.

difficult to locate
it has become increasingly difficult to locate fine hankies. I crochet a lace edge on them and send them with birthday, anniversary, get well and sympathy cards for all my lady family and friends and now granddaughters. I get a lot of oohs and aahs and they get something pretty to use and remember their special day.

My favorite hankie for many years
I put these beautifully made handkerchiefs in my pocket instead of paper tissues. I rarely check pockets before clothes go in the washer and this way no lint!
They also make wonderful hostess gifts.
