Wow. When I came across these Save the Date handkerchiefs on Alisha Clark's blog (through the Pink Book Blog that I post on) I was floored. I was also extremely jealous- why didn't I think of that?!? The pictures speak for themselves at how cool an idea this is. How do you get your hands on some of these for yourself? The talented Erin at Lucky Luxe did them and she also does business card hankies.
I have been obsessed lately with vintage handkerchiefs and have been slowly amassing a large collection of them. The personal history behind them makes me feel like I am connecting to some amazing women who often handmade and/or trimmed them. I always have one stuffed inside my sweater cuff in the winter and neatly tucked under my belt when I wear vintage dresses.
In fact, I have so many vintage hankies now that I will be adding them to my Tart Deco shop very soon. Nothing says Vintage Glamour & Retro Style than a pink linen hankie with hand-crocheted edges.
To celebrate my soon-to-be new shop section of hankies and the amazing Save the Date idea above, I will be giving a pair of vintage hankies of my choice to one of my lucky readers! They won't be printed like the ones above, but I bet you could use them for it :)
To enter you must post 2 things in one comment:
1. Tell me a creative way to use a handkerchief. This could be a cool way to fold it, paired with something, sewn onto something, etc.
2. Visit my etsy shop, Tart Deco, and tell me what your favorite item is or other vintage or retro items/sections you would like to see me add.
--Make sure that your email is available through your blog profile or put it in the comment so I have a way to contact you.
For an extra entry become a follower of this blog (or let me know you already are) and leave an extra comment for your extra chance to win.
The giveaway ends May 1st at 10 pm central time and I will post the winner (chosen by using random.org) on May 2nd.
NOTE: I do NOT do the printing on the hankies, I just have the hankies themselves. If you want the printing done contact Erin at Lucky Luxe.
