Had to share my excitement

It's Jean here and I know I should post art....
but this acquisition made me giddy! 

I am fortunate enough to be acquainted with a world class fiber artist, felter, quilter, and mixed media Artist - Rita Blocksom.   Rita actually invented specific felting needles used by the felting industry and taught fiber arts as well as mixed media for many years. 

Rita has been downsizing and clearing out many of her supplies of fabulous goods.  I got to go shopping!

Among the treasures are vintage, one of a kind hankies.   Some silk, some scalloped edges, all colors, some with tatting, various flowers, and ALL gorgeous!  There are Dogwood, Tulips, Roses and more.   Colors are soft and bold.  

They will all be available for purchase this week.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Score! Beautiful assortment Jean!!

  2. Wow! So gorgeous! Those hankies would make an awesome banner.

  3. I used to get hankies every Christmas. I had forgotten! Thanks for the memory! These are lovely.

  4. Beautiful! Hankies like hats should not have gone out of style

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
