Pretty Linen Things — Hanky Edition

My little brother got engaged a few months ago. Though they have yet to set a date, I’ve taken it upon myself to start picking up cute, dainty handkerchiefs for a wedding-related project and putting a spin on “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”.

Here’s a preview of some of the pretty little hankies I’ve found at various estate sales in the last 5 months:

I’ve been researching the best methods to freshen these up but if you have any suggestions on how to handle vintage linen, cotton, and silk hankies, then please leave a comment!
