This past weekend I took my mom to a couple of estate sales and antique shops. It has been a favorite pastime of ours, cut back a bit recently by difficult family circumstances, but needless to say, we had a wonderful time. I was even able to pick up a few more things for my hope chest, one of which was a lovely sheer hankie with some breathtaking lace around the edges. Mom thought I could keep it for my wedding hankie, and I thought that was a lovely idea, so into the chest it went.
I have collected a fair amount of linens already... whenever I'm at antique stores and estate sales I dive into the piles and piles of all that linen, cotton, tatting, and lace... *sigh*
It is extremely sheer and lightweight, and the lace is in such good condition.
I just hope I don't shed TOO many tears into it on my wedding day! :)
Do you have a hope chest? If so, what do you like to put in it?
Have a lovely Sunday!
