Thankful Entertaining

tinypic

We all love to entertain in out 'cottages'. our cottage styles really shine when we combine favorite recipes or take-out with cherished dinnerware, beverageware, serving pieces, silverware, linens, placemats, and beloved collections to create fun and wonderful tablescapes in a comfy nook for one, on an intimate table for two, for a small get-together, or for a grand gathering. Themes are as boundless as our imaginations. Each table a cottage one-of-a-kind.
This weekly Blog Party is open to everyone.

DIY Vintage Hankie Frames

DIY Hankie Frame



Sharing a little DIY Hankie Project today
Seen an idea similar to this on Pinterest so I can only take partial credit for it.
I am a Hankie lover, kind of like the doilies I seem to pick them up all over
Always a sucker for a pile of vintage Hankies
So why not frame them…right





I gathered up some hankie and decided on which ones were my favorites 
and set them aside 



Way too many to choose from 


I picked up these black Album frames from Michaels craft store
for $9.99 a piece I timed it right they were buy one get one free
Yippee!! Plus I had a coupon 
So Major score 

I think they turned out pretty good I found that some were different sizes
and didn't fit well other worked perfect
I think it would be fun to use a small hankie with some scrapbook paper as a background, Lots of varieties on this project 









I am loving the way they turned out, thinking of adding a few more
in place of the Doily canvas, Don't worry I would find a better spot for it 
It's changed a lot since this picture I added a few more doilies it's filling up nicely
