L is for Linen............
Hand embroidered, this beautiful linen handkerchief sits atop a small antique jewelry chest.
A dainty reminder of my grandmother and days gone by when a lady carried a handkerchief at all times.
After all, tissues hadn't been invented yet, and even when they were, they were too expensive to spend money on.
These lines were common and a necessity, and who knows, maybe someday they will be again.
It would certainly save trees, reduce waste, and lessen our carbon footprint upon this beautiful planet.
