The Hanky Fairy aka Garden Gnome suggested I give away some of those printed hankies to people who will actually do something with them so I decided this week I would give away a hanky a day. I have six hankies so there will be a new giveaway for six days.

So here's how it works: I will post a new hanky each day and if you are interested, just leave a comment. You can comment on any hanky you're interested in and overseas commenters are welcome. These are pretty easy to mail. I'll use the random number generator to pick a number though I won't be bothering with screen snapshots of the result. It just takes more time than I'm willing to put into it. Make sure I have a way to contact you. I'll update the previous day's entry with the winner's name. I will probably wait until the end and send them all out at once.

All the hankies are freshly laundered, lightly starched and pressed. They are different sizes but I forgot to measure them before I packaged them. Yep, they are packaged and ready to go! Two are embroidered rather than printed on and one is neither printed nor embroidered and is smaller than the others.

This is a Christmas hanky so you can get an early start on Christmas if you like. It has the same design on all four corners and has a scalloped edge. I have a lot of embroidered Christmas hankies too and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them. The projects I have in mind are not seasonal so I may decide to part with them later.

Years ago I saw a hanky project online which they titled "pocket posies". They used pretty hankies, edged in lace and sometimes with silk ribbon embroidery which were specifically for the pockets of blazers that were so popular then. I still think it's a great idea even though I don't typically wear a jacket or blazer.


  1. I love Christmas and I love this hanky!

  2. I really like this one! It's just gorgeous and so Christmassy.

  3. This just screams CHRISTMAS!!! So pretty.

  4. Beautiful picture and great idea!

  5. ...that is pretty.

  6. this is beautiful I would love to own it!

  7. That hanky is outstanding by itself. A very narrow edging would suit it, I think.

  8. I would love a chance to win this beautiful hanky.

    Your beautiful Christmas hanky brings back memories of my grandmother's hankies. The one I loved had blue violets on each corner. I would love to enter your hanky giveaway.
