Handkerchief: a small cloth for wiping the nose, face, etc. Don't ask me where my love for old things comes from. I am just drawn to them. Pretty linens, buttons, quilts, and yes, handkerchiefs. The only two people I know that use cloth handkerchiefs all the time are my sister-in-law Julie, and my dad. Actually, my dad has kind of gravitated to paper towels, but we won't mention that I just told everyone that. Anyway, over Christmas break I washed and ironed all of my handkerchiefs. Really I do have a life, but I LOVE crisp, clean ironed fabrics. They just look so pretty! If a tear ever falls, you can count on Julie to reach into her bag and give you a fresh handkerchief to wipe it away.
