A friend who collects beautiful things and knows of my love for vintage linens gifted me with this. It’s a beautiful piece as you can see here. I’m so fortunate to have it in my collection and so appreciate his kindness.

Flowers of French Knots on a Vintage Hankie

20140807-005w

 

This was given to me by my friends, Steve and Andrea. It belonged to Steve’s mother and it is a real beauty. It’s a vintage hankie, with this delicate embroidery of flowers made from French knots. Many of these are only decorated in one corner. This one has embroidery in all four corners, each in different colors. It’s beautifully done and so sweet. I’m grateful to have it. Perfectly lovely!.
