Since Lois was blogging about Hermes scarves and I have nearly finished putting up my collection on flickr, I decided it was time to start listing my vintage Jacqmar collection.... I got down the box, think I have about 70.
Haven't got very far yet but I have started with the most personal one...my mothers scarf from the 1950s. (above)
When I look for a blog to put on my reader I first look for something in common...knitting, sewing, textiles, vintage perhaps...then, except for a fine academic site, like The Textile Blog, I look for a sense of time and place. NessaKnits has this, she lives in Australia and gave a lovely link to this blog today. Thank you Nessa!
