Nursery Rhyme Hankies from the Lubbock Flea Market

My precious hankies. If you click on them you can read the verses. Do kids nowadays even know these rhymes? I doubt it. I bought these precious hankies at a flea market. I had been eyeballing them for a year. The lady that had a booth inside the building had a really cute glass cabinet and she housed the most precious items in there. She would open it for me and let me drool over all her treasures. I bought some sweet postcards with vintage ladies on them. She knew how much I wanted the hankies so one day; about a year, later she saw me strolling down the aisle and waved me over. She had a big smile on her face and told me that she had a secret. "What is it?", I asked. She walked me over to the glass cabinet and took out the hankies and placed them in my hand. She told me that she just couldn't bear the look on my face when I would leave the hankies behind without purchasing them. They were pricey. $25.00 for the set. In 1994 that was a large sum for me to spend on hankies. 
Anyway, she said that it was time for the hankies to go home with me and she let me have them for $9.00. I was thrilled. I have treasured them for years but I am going to send them to my sister Laurie (momof2roses) and let her make a quilt with them. She is very creative and loves to sew.
