Happy Christmas!

Santa has arrived!

This hankie from my collection is another by Tammis Keefe.

Tammis was born in 1913 and her real name was Margaret Thomas Keefe. In her lifetime she designed over 400 hankies and 100 tea towels as well as fabrics. Lord and Taylor even had a 'meet the artist' event for her. Ms. Keefe died in 1960, but her colourful and witty designs live on and are much sought after.


  1. I have quite a collection myself and will now look to see if I have any of hers. Is her signature somewhere on the hanky?

    1. Elizabeth, yes, the hankies I have by Tammis Keefe have her name on them somewhere. I hope you find one in your collection- they are fun!
