It's Jubilee 2023...

Now, fingers crossed I don't get kicked off, Hopefully my computer virus protector is napping and doesn't see me on the forum... lol!

Quick story, last week my hubby and I had doctor appointments and errands to run in town so we stopped in for a late lunch-dinner. While sitting at the table my hubby asked if I had a tissue so he could clean the lens of his eye glasses,, I pulled out a Hanky...After he returned the Hanky, I pondered for a moment,, how a Hanky use to be a staple in Lady's handbag..
I remember my mother always reminding me to keep a Hanky tucked in my little 'patent leather' purse... and to this day, I still keep a hanky in my purse..

The (my) Hankies have varied over the years... but oh how many times they have come in handy... wiping eye glass lenses, runny noses (mine & my daughter's) tears of joy and sadness and food from my daughter's face.

Over the years, I have given many a Hanky to someone, be it a gift or at a Funeral...

I do love Hankies... so...
Let's celebrate this year's Jubilee with a Hankey!

If you have a Hanky packed away, pull it out, gently hand wash it, and tuck it into your purse. maybe spritz it with a bit of lavender.., Maybe keep an extra one in your handbag just incase a friend needs their tears wiped away or, a loved one needs to wipe their eye glass lens..

Don't have a Hanky,??? hit a Thrift or antique store,, I see them all the time for a dollar or two.

You can also make your own Hanky.. using a piece of very thin cotton, wash it several times then dry it and iron it flat.
Next if you are confident with a sewing machine, make the tiniest hem all the way around,, if not, iron the hem in place and then hand stitch it down. If your sewing machine does decorative stitches like Herringbone, use that stitch for the hem.
For those of you who know how to ''tat" you can do a sweet tatting all around the edges.

Hankies vary from a dainty 8" to a very useful 14"...
You can hand or machine embroider them with a lovely design or your initials, or just leave them plain...
I happen to like the cute tiny printed soft cotton ones... they don't show stains as much as a solid color.. but the most important thing is to carry a hanky...

So, for this year, in celebration of our MJF Jubilee, let's wave our hankies,,
Maybe make or buy a Hanky and gift it to someone special or for those of you with young daughters, give them the tradition of carrying a Hanky.

Happy Jubilee '23, and carry your Hanky...

Now, show us your Hankies...

Happy Birthday to all born in May, and very happy Jubilee, as I use one of the hankies I found in a vintage store I had bought four and one of them looks like it is home made of nice thickness which I need today for my runny nose. The sun is out this morning after the snow flurries we had yesterday and the frost last night, the weather is suppose to be sunny all day and in the 60s wa who. I give my hankie salute, LOL

Happy Birthday and Jubilee MaryJane and Carole, best wishes to you both.

In 2015 MaryJane declared the first Farmgirl Jubilee the year Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 50th Jubilee. (Hope I remembered that right) Today we have come full circle with her son King Charles being crowned King of England. All happening on MaryJane's birthday as it should, don't you think.

Good Jubilee Morning Farmgirls! (Also, my 70th b-day.) So far, my Jubilee weekend has been lovely, but we're just getting started. Yesterday began with two of my employees taking me to the town of Deary, Idaho, specifically to the Pie Safe for brunch and then some shopping in their lovely loom/quilt/stitching and more store. I ordered their turkey sandwich special (fresh bread made in their bakery along with one of their homemade cheeses they're famous for), chai milkshake, Earl Grey latte, cherry pie, and a tasty bite of Abigail's cheesecake that she ordered.

Abigail surprised me with a FARMGIRL painting she made, free hand. This morning I have it resting on my farmgirl mail table where every day I try to sit for at least one letter.

The day before that, it was sunny and warm so Carol and I sat in the sunshine on her porch enjoying her lovely garden, tea in hand. (It's her b-day today also.)

On this Jubilee day my daughter Meg, and several other farmgirls will be joining me for an out-of-town dinner and then breakfast the next morning at Meg's favorite diner. It's the perfect weekend for coffee-shop hopping and shopping because it's turned rainy and cold.

I'm sure all the love will make me teary eyed at some point (hanky handy) as my nearest and dearest farmgirls treat me to some getaway down time, topped with LOVE. Thank you for yours and the continued inspiration you send our way. Happy Jubilee '23 to all of you--each and every one of you are precious and dear to me!!!!

Yesterday I received the latest edition of MJF magazine and on page 68 is an article about our Jubilee hankies. How cool is that.
