I wanted to show that handkerchiefs are more than just a piece of fabric or a functional item. I wanted to showcase the handkerchiefs people had kept over the years, the ones they cherished but more importantly I wanted to share the stories behind those handkerchiefs …. how they were acquired, loved and the journeys they have followed.
I was so excited when I found this website I had to share it with other Hankie Lovers!! It is called http://handkerchiefheroes.com, it is all about Hankie history, appreciation and collecting. It was wonderful to explore through the pages, it gave me great joy and I was so excited to see others shared my love of hankies and their stories.
Origins of Mother's Day
Mother's Day is this weekend as most of us know - 12 May and it is always a busy time of year for us at Boutique Heidi
I see so many people sharing their photos of themselves with their mum's or with their kids so nice to look back and see these moments in their lives and hear their stories. There is no much hype around days like Mother's Day and I dont like to buy into the commercialism of Mother's Day or similar days like Valentine's Day - which I am a big fan of! I am know for sending Secret Valentine card to my friends.
