Aha!

I was scouring girl headbands on etsy the other day and came across this listing. I think this is such a cute alternative to headbands/bows, etc. I find many headbands/bows, etc. darling, but sometimes a bit overused. When I saw these adorable pics...


...I instantly thought of the antique hankerchief collection I have had since I was a little girl. I can't remember the exact reason I started collecting these, but I'm fairly certain I probably came across one while antique shopping with my mom and thought they were too pretty to resist. And also because I went through several "collection" phases as a young girl (my troll doll one would have impressed just about anybody). I think I have about 15 of these hankies. You might think they serve absolutely no purpose, except to sit in a box and collect dust. However, myself, my sister, and a few friends have used these on their wedding day to carry with their bouquet. And now it looks like Sophie and Campbell might get to use these in a whole new way! I hope they are cool and chic enough to pull these off when the time comes. 

At the very least, I have a small reason to hang onto the hankies for a few more years... ;)
