Question for the females


A big collection

Recommended Posts

A question for all you female hanky lovers.

What kind of hankys do you prefer to use yourselves ?

Would they be big or small ?

Do some of you just prefer observing rather than owning and using yourselves ?

I haven't even really used a hanky. Tissues are more handy for me. I never really paid attention to blowing until recently.

I have two like that -- red with white polka dots -- and another that's fuschia with white polka dots. I have a shirt that's red with white polka dots and I'm always sure to carry my matching polka dotted handkerchief when I wear it.

Other than that, they are all plain white. However . . .

My mother-in-law is came to this country from Europe back in the '40's. She still has all of her old, hand-embroidered handkerchiefs from when she was a child (bit of a packrat, she). She's going to send me the lot of them. She noticed that I was using handkerchiefs when she last visited.

I'll let you guys know when they arrive.

Please do .. its good to know that we appear to be getting some more ladies who are using hankies ... you and vetinari to name but two recent additions...you must look good when you sneeze/blow onto you hankie with your matching shirt on

and so good of your mother-in-law to notice your need

Hand-embroidered handkerchiefs of almost 70 years old are a collector's item over here. They can be found on antique markets and a lot of money is asked for them. Lucky you !

BTW I remember - when I was a child - my grandfather used those big red hankies with white polka dots. He was a genuine Flemish farmer and it used to be part of the tradition. Unfortunately I did not inherit his collection...

I haven't but I think I'll be shopping for a couple as I'm about to go on vacation and I like the idea of having something handy with me all the time. :whistle:
