heirloom bonnet


Baby Bonnets

I am a little bonnet,
as cute as cute can be.
Would you ever guess a
hankie I used to be?

I can be worn home
From the hospital,
then again on Christening Day.
You can neatly fold
me and keep me for the Wedding Day.

Every bride must wear
something old – so you can
clip a stitch or two and
a wedding hankie will unfold.

If by chance it is a boy,
on the day he is wed
I can be presented to his bride.
Won't she be proud to use –
the bonnet he wore upon his head.



beautiful hankies


some old, some new


this is what I do will all the vintage hankies I find


a little press, a little thread, some ribbons and flowers

a special little gift for a new baby

I love this little blue one for a baby boy

the back is as pretty as the front


I added a pretty little flower to the back of this one


AN HEIRLOOM BONNET


I am just a little hankie, as square as can be;
but with a stitch or two, they've made a
bonnet out of me.

I'll be worn home from the hospital,
and on special days,

and then I'll be carefully pressed and
neatly packed away.

Then on the Wedding, I have been told,
every well dressed Bride must have something old.
So what would be more fitting than to
find Little Old Me,

a few stitches snipped and a Wedding Handkerchief
I Will Be!

good day people. I'm honestly into shoes and I have been looking for that meticulous make. The prices due to the fact that the sneakers are around 300 pounds on every site. But definitively I base this area selling them for the benefit of half price. I in reality want those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will definetly order these. what can you tell me about these?
