Yes, another one

Yes, there was another  big tub of  "lost" scarves in the garage. Not perhaps lost for 12 years like the last lot, but at least 4 or 5 years. The bottom layer I do not remember at all, then there were some plastic bags stuffed with scarves....seems as if I came home from some rummage/jumble/yard sales and just shoved them in, have a vague recollection of some of these.

 No Liberty scarves this time,or couture designer. I must have started my special Liberty box ( make that closet) and designer drawer by then. A pretty selection of fine woolens were there.

 Plus a couple of smaller boxes ....no doubting the contents. I must have been more organized in those days,

This cravat has just the right label.

 And, this Hermes wannabe. It may well be an early Hermes, no imprint, as often was the case.... guess folks were not so 'label' conscious back then.   The size of the scarf is right, the hem is right, the entire 'look' is right.
 I wish Hermes had a complete catalog of designs. There is a fancy coffee table book that I have, but its rather pretentious and does not tell me what I need to know.  

Shall I move it to my Hermes box?
Thinking it would be a fun thing to share with my granddaughter I was going to treat us  to this Hermes coloring book until I saw the price.....

lots more for the shop, think it will keep me going for a year or so.


  1. Isn't it fun to discover something you had forgotten you had? Looks like that's exactly what you're doing (and cleaning out the storage area at the same time). Win/win! ps. how're you doing?

  2. Oh! Like an early Christmas present to yourself!

  3. I love reading the word 'gentlemen'. So much more romantic than just 'men'. What wonderful rediscoveries...

  4. OMG!! I just cannot imagine forgetting a box of my linens for 12 years!! I guess you don't need any more scarves from Oz at the moment - grinning!

  5. I dearly love Hermes, but $140 for a coloring book??!!
