About

All right, I confess...I am a self-proclaimed collector of anything that brings back memories...hence my store's name--My Grammie's Hankie-
My Grammie Thyra was a master of the handkerchief. My fondest memories were snuggling next to her in church while she created little rolled "babydolls" in a "blanket" with a hankie and keep me occupied during a sermon! When I inherited her collection of handkerchiefs and other linens, they were, well, ignored in boxes for many years.
I am recently retired from a career in teaching...Now, I HAVE to do something with Grammie's linens and the other memorabilia I have collected over the years in outdoor antique markets, estate sales, and consignment shops.
I stand in awe of our sisters of yesterday who filled their hope chests and homes with lovingly handmade items. When I see these works unappreciated and unused, I have picked them up and used them here and there…

I stand in awe of our sisters of yesterday who filled their hope chests and homes with lovingly handmade items. When I see these works unappreciated and unused, I have picked them up and used them here and there in my home. If only these items could tell us where they’ve been and who has wiped a tear, served a meal, or dreamed a dream upon them.
So…my handmade items are all created with re-purposed materials- tablecloths, sheeting, pillowcases, hankies, or potholders, which have been carefully washed, sanitized and re-created for your enjoyment today.
I hope you will enjoy each item- it’s been my joy and privilege to sew for you!
