More than a year ago I discovered these beautiful old handkerchiefs at a flea market. I bought them, although I did not really know what to do with them. I thought that I might turn them into fancy collars on a childrens' shirt, but it never happened.
Now, with the hay fever season in full bloom, I am going through lots of paper tissues every day. In a general effort of decluttering our house and reducing the amount of garbage we produce, I remembered these handkerchiefs.
Now I am not recycling them into childrens' clothes any more, but I use them like they were meant to be used - to blow my nose! Sometimes we think too complicated if the solution is so near!
