In your face

Some unusual attributes in this Liberty scarf I picked up last week for my collection.

1970s  'art nouveau' type face , hand rolled pale grey narrow hem, silk charmuese, made in Italy, printed with an adaption of  Arthur Silver's Hera design,

Wonderful 'me' colour, great quality, perfect condition. So what is it that is holding me back on adoring this scarf?
I think it is because it has everything but the kitchen sink and its a bit too clever.
Just too ' in your face'
It says " look at me, I am expensive"
Come to think of it, why muck with a perfectly wonderful design

The more I write the more I am coming to actively dislike this ....

I still prefer these.

STOP PRESS. I wonder if it IS a Liberty scarf?
***** Looking at  some of the latest Liberty scarves for sale, I note that the 'art nouveau' type face is being used once more. And, just look at the price!!!   To think I have 800 +++   ( rubs hands gleefully)


  1. I checked out the link and looked at the prices - nearly fell off my chair!! I have no clue what the exchange rate is at this moment but seeing the price at 195 pounds was enough to blow me away. Holy crow!!!!!

    1. Yup, I have better things to spend my money on....at least THAT kind of money.

  2. I can't possibly look on the site at the moment - they have a 50% off sale and I'm too easily tempted.

  3. Awesome work.Just wanted to drop a comment and say I am new to your blog and really like what I am reading.Thanks for the share
