A Vintage Gift: Vintage Thingie Thursday
It's time for Vintage Thingie Thursday again...Yippee!!! Please visit Coloradolady for more Vintage Wonderfulness!
I've written a couple times about gifts I've received from BookCrossing friends (see label list on sidebar for "BookCrossing"). Today I want to show off what a special BookCrosser named Southernfryed sent to me a few weeks ago!
Southernfryed sent me this beautiful handkerchief that belonged to her grandmother. She enclosed a note telling that when her grandmother passed away, she found this handkerchief in a box all ready for her grandmother to gift out to someone. Her grandmother put the pretty lace edging on it in green and white.
You may remember that my very first Vintage Thingie Thursday post was about my Great-Grandmother's dishes. Southernfryed's gift was the perfect addition to my display of her dishes in my hutch! I'm assuming that they are both from approximately the same generation (my Grammy Annabelle was born in 1915), as Southernfryed is about the same age as my mom.
What a special gift this is! I was excited just to get something vintage and neat but then to read her card and realize the special significance of the gift---wow, I'm just honored!
Have a wonderful Vintage Thingie Thursday!
