Anyone who sees me on a regular basis knows that I wear a scarf in my hair quite often. It’s one of my things. I have three favorites, which I tend to rotate through during the year until this past Sunday when my mom gave me a bag full of my Nanny’s scarves. I inherited every single one of her beautiful scarves, and she had so, so many. My mom told me that people often gave them to her as gifts since she wore them so often. When she did wear one, she’d tie it around her neck in that classic, but also kind of old timey, way – sometimes with a pin or brooch.
And, so I am going to show you some of my new old scarves in my treasured feature over the next few weeks. Because I treasure these. I really, really do.
I can tell this one is 100% silk just by touching it, but it doesn’t have a tag or designer listed anywhere. It is mostly teal green and red and pink. I remember her wearing this in the springtime. It is skinny and long, which makes it the perfect shape for a hair scarf.
I’m a day late with Treasured because it is vacation week. Enough said, right?
