remembering Elizabeth


My good friend  and neighbor Judith gave me a collection of her mothers scarves. Elizabeth died last year.



Although I only met Elizabeth a dozen or so times over 20 years  I felt that I got to know her a little bit better as I went through her collection. She was ever the fashion plate and always immaculately turned out.



 Here is my very favorite, a delicate Liberty silk scarf, perhaps from the 70s , pearly grey, with a summery, country hedgerow pattern. I shall always remember her whenever I wear it.




 Another couple of Liberty scarves, the pink one has no label/logo, but I am 80% sure it is Liberty.
 (unlike these when I was 99% sure)


 Of course, the scarf does not have to be made for Liberty to be sold at the store. Here, an elegant, understated 'chain' motif, made in Italy.



I have always wished that I have kept the Richard Allen scarves that have come my way. I believe they were a division of Jacqmar.
What would my blog be without an almost weekly scarf post?
