My grandmother gave me a beautiful white handkerchief with delicate white embroidery to use on my wedding day nearly eleven years ago. I wrapped the hanky around the base of my bouquet, and carried it with with me down the aisle. It was a small, yet very special part of my big day.
Hannah and Leah love handkerchiefs too. I think they like the dainty, feminine, frilly quality of them. And for some reason, they go crazy playing with them. The handkerchiefs become blankets for stuffed animals or a dress for a doll. And lately Leah has been calling one of her favorite handkerchiefs a ghost. The ghost hanky follows her around and is "friendly like Casper," according to my Bee.
Do you use handkerchiefs? Do you have any with sentimental value?
