While I love using hankies for their original purpose, there are so many creative ideas for repurposing them into a variety of accessories and home decor that I would love to try. Here are a some of my favorites! What are some ideas you have for repurposing these pretty vintage hankies?

Whenever I travel I try to find a good flea market. After doing some research on the internet I came up empty. So when I arrived in Bemidji I asked around to see if anyone knew of any flea markets. I was told about an informal market on Friday mornings in nearby Cass Lake. I was told to take the highway a few miles east and turn off when I see the Bingo Palace Casino sign.
There were a few cute items like this primitive yet charming Paul Bunyon desk top decor. Nothing says Minnesota quite like Paul Bunyon and Babe, the Blue Ox, dontcha know? There were a few other items of interest but the overall theme of this market was death as you can see by the bountiful selection of knives, guns, traps and dead animals, etc.
I can appreciate a good selection of "Mantiques" as much as the next person but all these weapons of mass destruction were a little too gruesome for me.

While I was in Minnesota last week I discovered a lovely little shop in downtown Bemidji. KD Floral is a delightful shop where you can buy live plants, floral arrangements, jewelry, artwork and gifts.
