    This handkerchief is something I've had since 4th grade. Yes, you read that right---4th grade. That would be nearly 50 years old. Not quite, but real close. In 'real life', it's quite yellowed with age.

    It was in my valentine from my boyfriend in school....remember the meme I did a while back? "I wanna be Bobby's Girl"? Yep, it's from Bobby!!!

  5. My dad once brought me an eleborately embrodier hankie from Viet Nam. I thought to myself..."some little Vietname lady went blind embroidering this hankie!" So do you think I could ever blow my nose on it?

  27. That's an awesome memory! I wonder if any boys would think of giving such a nice momento today? Everything is so generic and discardable.

  51. That's very special. People used to give hankies . . . when we cleaned out my mother's things, we discovered she'd had hankie parties for various occasions and had many beautiful ones she had never used.

    Thanks for dropping by! Nice to see ya! :-)
