Bring Back Your Grannies' Hanky's!

After my Grandma Rita died, I inherited all her scarves and handkerchiefs (one being pictured to the left) .  I know many of us have some around or have family members who aren't using theirs anymore.  Why not bring them back, especially at this time of the year?

I keep mine in a little box in my room and keep in my pocket (or tucked in my shirt sleeve like Gram's did!).  At the end of the day, I put them in my dirty clothes or with the towels for laundering.  My more delicate ones are washed separately, so they aren't ruined.

Not only do I take pleasure in the physical softness of the material against my nose and the better it is on the environment, but I feel more connected to my Grandma Rita.  What's better than that?  Let's ban together and ditch those throw away tissues (or at least reduce our habit to use them)!

I do this! I also pick some up at antique shops when I visit them. :-)
