I spied some beautiful smocking (folds/ pleats) on etsy this morning at yorktown road. There are often many lovely things made by great artisans on etsy but I am truly smitten with the linen and gentle design. She puts her process pics on flicker, I am a sucker for process.
My want was not long-held as my aunt surprised me with some lovely monogrammed linen hankies from my late grandmother Kathleen in the mail. So precious to receive reminders and mementos of those who have passed that we loved dearly. It makes me more excited for my cousin’s wedding in a few weeks, it will be the first time being all together since Granny’s funeral 3 years ago. I have 16 cousins on that side of the family!
