The last set of handkerchiefs are monogrammed M for my grandmother, Mae. Since my middle name is Mae & my first name begins with an M, I had the 2nd one bunched up in the center as shown & inserted into my bouquet when I got married. It’s at my wrist in the picture. Something old & a way to have her with us on our wedding day!

The first 2 have tatted borders. Isn’t the first so dainty to have such a small plain area surrounded by a large delicate edging. Beautiful. The 2nd is interesting to me because they used 2 colors. The 3rd is probably crochet. If I’m wrong, do let me know!

These make a lovely set as well. Each has some petite point work. And, a couple of shades of each color make a simple but effective flower.

Getting back to vintage items with handkerchiefs. I’ll start with the flower of the month in which I was born – Lilies of the  Valley. I had some of these in my bouquet when I got I married. If I knew about this handkerchief then, I may have used it with my flowers. Instead I used another (the subject of an upcoming blog).
