Hankie Display

I saw this idea in a magazine - not sure which one - but, they used an old spoon collection board to display old hankies. I had no spoon collection board so I was on "the watch" for that to use to display the old hankies I have. At an antique store last weekend I found one. I bought it and brought it home - sanded and painted it white.

Now, it displays some of the old hankies I've collected over the years. I thought it was a cute idea. I mentioned to the antique store owner and she also thought it was a really cute idea. I should send her pics of it! I'm sharing today over at Cindy's at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. Check the hundreds of other ideas on her blog!

Pam,
Such a cute idea, indeed. I have lots of hankies from my Mother~in~Law. . .she was such an English desendant lady! NO idea of how to display them. . . the little wheels are a turnin'! Thank you for such an inspiring post!
Fondly,
Pat
