hanky lovin'

I'm rather a tissue person than a hanky person, but this collection is an exception. I accidentally found these pretty girls years back at a flea market at Pasar Baru. And I got them for almost nothing - super cheapo! Some of them are branded too, or so that's what is printed on the fabric that is. I found an Yves Saint Laurent, a Laura Ashley, a Wedgwood, and a Kenzo. The question whether they are genuine remains a mystery. But that doesn't matter. They're so pretty, don't you think? Here are my three favorites.

I love the yellow frame around the piece. So summery! Oh, this one is a Kenzo :)

Don't you love the retro flowers? This one is a Pierre Balmain.

I love Laura Ashley and maybe that's why I subjectively like this one. But you do agree that the detailed edges are nice, don't you?

I really don't know what I'll do with these lovelies. I think they are too pretty to be cut out for a project. But they are too nice to just be stacked away. Maybe I'll do something like this pillow project from fjspillows or maybe not. What I definitely want to do is go back to that flea market and get some more. Pasar Baru, anyone?
