Today's Show and Tell Sunday is being hosted by Analise over at Sugar*Sugar. The theme this week is handkerchiefs. I was a little late with my post this morning due to computer problems, but finally managed to get it uploaded.
I really like the idea of show and tell as it is inspiring me to find all my treasures and store them so I can use and display these little items.
All of the handkerchief in my collection, belonged to my MIL , Mother, a couple that were given to my brother(which I will give him for his memory box) or myself. The tatted or crochet lace on the handkerchiefs was done by my Mother, aunt or Grandmother.
There is a basket with still more of my MIL's handkerchief that I didn't get finished ironing, I will get them done this week and do a catch up at a later date
I also have all my grandmothers crochet books and here are a few of the covers from some of them. The pictures are out on flickr, feel free to download for projects if you like. The books would be from the 20's and 30's so I think they are fine.
