I’ve been doing some things (very slowly) in my upstairs bathroom. I found some pictures at the thrift store that I loved. My pictures are terrible. The pictures are actually really great.
Here’s a close up of one of them. Each has a dried flower and then the flower description written. They were at the thrift store but were brand new with tags still on them. I paid $3 each.
Then my childcare mom who is an artist did my “K” for me in dried flowers. This looks so awesome in person. She does a great job on these. She does these with choice of background color and choice of flowers or leaves to make the letter. (If anyone wants her contact info, email me and I’ll hook you up).
I kind of have a floral these going on and am really happy with that. The thing I need now is a new shower curtain. When I figure out what I want, I need two as we have a claw foot tub. I was looking on line and had thought I’d like something lace. Then Kalissa saw this and was sure I needed it. What do you think?
It’s a shower curtain made of handkerchiefs. I do like it but I’m not sure if it’s too much floral. I’ve forever loved handkerchiefs. I vividly remember ironing them for my mom. That was always my job and I loved it.
Here’s another…I went on Pinterest and there are even more.
All of this got me wondering if I could even collect enough handkerchiefs. I went on ebay and checked it out. Could I find some?
YES…I could there are LOTS but they are expensive. There was a lot of 21..these are all teal based. As I write this, the bid is at $26. UGH. I really like them and I’ve come to find teal is really growing on me.
After investigating, handkerchiefs are going for between $2 and $5 each. A nice lot like this will likely for closer to the $4 each price.
I would need more than this to make two shower curtains. I’m sure some I can’t use due to sizing as there is no standard size for handkerchiefs. I have to have the handkerchiefs more of a similar size in order to make the curtain. Hmmm. The I’m wondering if I am REALLY sure this is what I want for a shower curtain. Usually I don’t do things too girly and floral but for the most part, I’m the only one uses the bathroom so why not give it more of a feminine touch.
So what do you all think? Do you like the handkerchief shower curtain look? Does anyone have a more reasonable resource for handkerchiefs? The next time I go to the Amish south of us I’m going to look. I know they sell new ones there all the time. I’m sure they are $4 each!!
