update on scarves

Alas,no Liberty scarves for  my collection on my latest foray to the thrift stores to restock  my shop ( I had not been since March -- honest)

I bought an unusual Jacqmar scarf.
 Jacqmar always reminds me of my mother,see my avi here, I believe they were made in Rochester, near where I come from.

The price was right on this nice quality cruise line souvenir

but I dont care what the price is when it leaves a nasty glue mark like this!!

A somewhat bizarre take of of Jacqmar - made in Italy???

My favorite, a unisex old Macclesfield silk, 18" selvedge to selvedge. Love it and it is staying with me.

Also staying with me, at least for now,  a summery cotton Perry Ellis.

The first Marimekko I have ever thrifted destined for my etsy shop.

 Gorgeous lipstick  red also  destined for fabriquefantastique  --  I think.

And the requisite Hermes --Bride de Cour.

Lots more fabulous pieces, dare not tell you how muchI spent and how many I acquired for the shop.

opening up

This is the latest we have opened up our summer island cabin.....ever.

Drowned, due to the rising lake levels and the enormous amount of rain.


Lots of work to be done.

But lots of signs of life too.

The sun still sets on one side of the island

as the full moon rises on the other side.

Its good to be back.

Re visiting Liberty

Found lurking at the back of my closet, 

a zip lock bag of vintage Liberty of London scarves.

They have not seen the light of day for at least a decade.

I'm wearing this apricot one as we speak, an unusual colour for me.

 The pretty nile green with the old tag is my favorite.

1970s  perhaps with a hand rolled hem.

Think I will  visit some of my other bags and boxes soon.
