I remember sitting one day, and thinking about how I had all of these pretty things, but for some reason I had them all tucked away. That is just silly. All of my hankies were neatly folded into squares and were placed in rows in my favorite desk drawer. My aprons suffered the same fate, and were neatly rolled into little bouquets and placed in my closet. But soon that all changed. The first thing I did was choose my two favorite aprons, and use them as curtain ties. Since my curtains were a nice thick white cotton, the beautiful patterns on the aprons looked as sweet as could be next to the airy white fabric.
I moved to the hankies next. I placed two or three of my favorite hankies on various nightstands around the house, and then proceeded to put my collections of pillboxes and cat figurines on them, ( Its embarrassing, but its real. Lets forget about it ). Using my hankies set the stage to put other parts of my collections out on display. Hankies can be used for tons of other things. For example, a lot of people make curtains out of their hankies. I personally hate to ruin the original state of the hankie, so I don't do this, but boy do I love it! Here's a picture of one person's hankie curtains. So sweet!
A lot of my friends have amazing jewelry collections tucked away in 2 or 3 jewelry boxes. This goes out to you all! I have found the perfect use for an old shadow box or type drawer. Ta da!
