Maybe it is because they are from a simpler time when a ladies wore dresses, hats and white gloves.
I began to refold each little hankie and place them in the basket to return them to their storage shelf once again. Then the thought hit me.....wouldn't they be perfect for a little doll.
I am so happy with my little vintage handkerchief dolls. I am even happier that I don't have to store away all of my pretty handkerchiefs any longer. They will be repurposed into cheerful baby dolls for little girls to love.
