Decorating With Vintage Hankies



My sweet friend Maryjane at The Beehive Cottage asked me on her blog to post a picture of how I have decorated with Vintage Hankies.


In my Laundry Room, I wanted a cheery bright curtain valance that did not take away from my view outside. So I decided on Vintage Hankies. I first put up a rope, like a clothes line across the top of the french doors. Then I hung up Vintage Hankies and secured them with vintage clothes pins I bought at a Antique Store. Up above the door I painted a shelf green to match my cupboards then I put on it all vintage laundry items I have bought at Antique Stores.


I love Vintage Hankies and this is a great way of displaying them!

Hi Ann
Thanks for entering my giveaway. Sorry you didn't win :(
I love your laundry room and the hankie valance is so sweet. What a clever idea to hang it with clothespins! Does having a laundry room like that make the chore easier?
Hugs, Rhondi
