Last week, my daughter and I opened the very old small suitcase that I use to store my vintage hankie collection.
We were looking for the perfect hankie to make a dress for the little wooden doll that I had carved for her.
Miranda, the Mermaid that I carved last year, has been feeling the sudden onset of cold weather.
I overheard her complaining about the cold to Bessie Gnome, Coco, Thallie and the dogs about the cold.
As a Mermaid, Miranda doesn’t mind cold water, but the dry cold that she is experiencing feels very uncomfortable.
Luckily, there was a silk hankie with elegant lace that suits Miranda perfectly as a shawl:
As Miranda was posing for the photo, perched on the edge of the suitcase, I noticed that there was a very sweet hankie that looked perfect for Lettie Bunny:
Lettie is now a cozy bunny, and tickled pink about it.
She feels that she can face winter in the Wall Doll House without a shiver.
Lettie spotted a tiny elegant silk hankie that she was sure would make Peggetty very happy.
Peggetty, Lettie and Miranda are all very content with their new wraps, and are so grateful that a friend blessed us with her mother and grandmother’s hankies!
