the hankie lady

While home I was also able to spend some time with my mom. On Saturday we went to visit the "hankie lady." Back when I decided that I'd be creating handkerchief save-the-dates, I put my mom in charge of scouring up the hankies. In the winter, while at one of the local craft/antique places, she met Nancy who owns an antique linens booth. Well mom and Nancy hit it off and Nancy has gone above and beyond to find me the perfect handkerchiefs. I received another installment of about 20 on Saturday that were gently laundered and perfectly pressed. And she wouldn't take a dime for them! Wow. We also discussed doilies and mason jars, which she has also volunteered to gather for us (the doilies were actually her idea!). The plan is that the vintage lace doilies will go on top of our burlap table cloths and then the blue mason jars will set on top of those with some twine tied around the lip. Ohhh it's all coming together! I was even able to find some perfect inspiration photos:


Did you have any friends, family members or vendors that went above and beyond the call of duty for your wedding?
