Any Soon to be Brides out there?

We love the idea of the bridal handkerchief!

Some of the lucky brides have one that has been handed down to them, perhaps carried by a Grandmother in the 1950's or a Great Great Grandmother in the Victorian era!

Those of us who do not have such a blessing, well, it is time to start your own family tradition!

Vintageblessings carries many FINE bridal handkerchiefs that date from the 1800's to the 1950's. The prices can range from $22 to over $400 depending of the rarity.

I did not have this wonderful tradition in my family before I got married.  SO, I have chosen lovely hankies for my granddaughters to keep. They are sure to remember me, if I am not able to attend their future nuptials, and I hope that they will pass these along to their own daughters or daughter in laws (to be!)

These handkerchiefs make wonderful gifts.  Birth, Christening, Baptism, Sweet 16, and Bridal Shower.

Where has the time gone?

We have been so very busy, and now that Christmas is over, we are HOPING to feel a little spring coming soon!

It has been such a cold winter here in Idaho, but we are warmed by our friends and family. We are blessed and happy.

Leaving in a few days on a major buying trip, this is the start of the season!
