Vintage Handkerchief Banners

Good Morning~
Hope you are all having a good week. This post will be a short one, I just came down with a yucky cold so I am wanting to lay down and call it a day. But, I couldn't resist showing you all the beautiful handmade banners that we are putting on our Etsy Shop. They are made from vintage handkerchiefs. Love them. I think you will to:)
This is part of the pink one. I photographed them in segments because they are easier to see all the delicate, sweet handkerchiefs better.
Each banner is approx. 9 feet long and they all have 7 handkerchief segments on them.There are ties on the ends for hanging.
The blue and white one.......
More blue and white......

Love how this one has a segment with two overlapping hankies
This one is Purple, Pink, White and personal favorite:))
You see what I mean about photographing these?? They are so delicate the camera doesn't do them justice in capturing their true loveliness

This is the pink and blue banner

They are perfect for your Spring decor, baby showers, nurseries, garden decor, Easter etc. They are one of a kind and I just love them all. I would have loved to have the pink one for my daughter's room when she was small.
The blue and white and pink one are in our Etsy shop- My Soulful Home already. The other two will be added today and tomorrow.

Ok,off to lay down and rest... believe me this is not an easy task for me.

A big thank you to all my new followers and for the nicest notes I have been getting. I am overwhelmed by all the kindness and encouraging words. Thank you:)
