You always do such a great job with your pictures, and nearly always bring a tear to my eye. What a loving tribute.

Char said...

Susan said...

Sandy, you're so sweet. You wouldn't believe the trouble I had getting that shot just right without my reflection in the picture frame glass.

My niece told me to keep posting these because it's clearing up her sinuses...just call me Dr. Susan. :)

Susan said...

Char, tell me that's NOT a coincidence! pasedg, that is!

I did this and linked to you on the other site. I was very touched by this and how these things are our sacred treasures.

I love old hankies. I still have a bundle of them from my mom.
You picture captures their delicacy.
My grandmothers were never without theirs ...

Sigh ...
Brings back little treasured moments ...

Thanks, Susan

Good one! I have to put on my thinking cap for this one.

I love vintage hankies and actually do carry one in my purse when my purse is too small for a cotton bandana. Great for wiping my glasses or camera lens.

Wonderful theme, Susan!

Susan said...

Bella, thank you for looking. Nothing like a little shameless huckstering, eh? :)

Susan said...

Cora, I'm pretty sure you of all people will not have a problem coming up with a photo for my challenge! Get to lookin', girlfriend! :)

Susan said...

gemma, thank you for linking me. You are very sweet. :)

Susan said...

CG, thank you, sweet friend. The past is always with us and thank goodness for that. I love to take Mom's things out occasionally and just feel them. It almost feels as if she is there with me.

Susan said...

Thank you, dutchbaby. I'll bet you have lots of treasures from all your travels. I would have trouble finding a place to put all of them, if I had traveled as extensively as you have.

Alaine said...

How lovely, Susan. I have Mother's beautiful crocheted doilies and tablecloths and I do wish I'd kept her hankies! She used to tuck a hanky up the sleeve of my dress for me.

Another beautiful post.

Susan said...

Thank you, Alaine, you are always so kind to me.

Someone else must have gotten my mom's doilies. I did get some of her tea towels though.

So sorry Suzie that I just couldn't get my act together to do this...:(

Susan said...

Not to worry, O...you were in a far better place. ;)

My darling Susan, let me tell you the exact moment I began to cry (so you can be sure you hit your mark):

The few I have left are threadbare and worn.

Exquisite.

Susan said...

Oh, Vanessa, I'm sorry I made you cry, but I hope they were tears of love and memories. You are such a sweetheart. XOXO

VaNeSsA said...

Susan, don't be sorry! Tears are good in poetry.
