Who's Not Inspired?







I am SO inspired constantly by Cindy at My Romantic Home. We all know her and love her blog.
Well today my post is inspired by her bedroom. Very pretty, very sweet. I really loved her hankies hanging over her bedroom window. So here are my hankies, in my...home sweet bedroom. Take a look at me ironing the vintage hankies I found here and there (hey, you weren't suppose to get my fanny in there...thats what happens when an 8 year old takes the picture, they just don't understand) Back to the hankies--I love the look and the darlingness of it.(the hankies).

Hi Wendy! I love Cindy's blog too! And those handkerchiefs are one of my favorite things she did also. It is such an easy way to dress up a window!

Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog :)

Hugs,
Amy

I love how you've displayed your hankies. Each one different but they mesh so wonderfully.
Enjoy your day.

Also I sending you this prayer for your dad.
Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, we turn to You in this time of illness. 0 dearest Comforter of the Troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden. Dear God, we place our worries in Your hands. We place our sick under Your care and humbly ask that You restore Your servant to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your holy will and know that whatsoever You do, You do for the love of us.
Keep your faith and hope high.
Blessings, Virginia

I just love vintage hankies. When my daughter was younger, I would embellish her jeans, overalls and denim jackets with them along with vintage chenille.
Your window is great!

That is so darling! I love Cindy's blog too. I have seen those vintage hankies made into a bed skirt! I would love to try that sometime.

Very pretty! You can make a lamp shade cover with them too just to add another touch in the room.

I was very impressed that you were ironing. I know I have an iron around here somewhere.....:)

Hi Wendy, I discovered your blog through Jennifers at The Old Pianted Cottage. Your family looks so sweet. I love how the children all resemble. This idea for the vintage hankies is darling. I have a pretty good collection of them, myself. The only room that is cottagey is my workroom, SO maybe I should doll it up a bit.
Thanks for the inspiration!
