How kind of my blogging buddy Gina to send me lots of scarves whilst I am in New Zealand. She lives in Australia and figured the postage would be cheaper. (she was right. ) Gina has many blogs, mostly textile related, I don't know how she keeps them all up so well. One of her blogs is devoted to vintage aprons, what I good idea, I am thinking of opening another etsy shop that will feature just that. Does anyone have any ideas for a shop name?
Thank you Gina.
Some of the collection Gina sent me.
Not bad, eh?
A Jim Thomson scarf and another floral Thai piece that I have worn non-stop since it arrived. I think south sea silks are wonderful and often overlooked. Certainly there seems to be more available in this hemisphere.
I believe this London square is quite old, pre-coronation (1953) at the very least, possibly a WW11 patriotic scarf.
Alas, I have to make my way back to Canada tomorrow, I am very sad but still lots of NZ blogs to come.
