a little inspiration for your monday…

January 12, 2009

I’m a collector of sorts.  Little odds and ends that might inspire are good to have around.  My three little apprentice girls presented me with quite the gem this weekend.

Isn’t it amazing?  I love that it is wearable art, but I must say Nick and I are tempted to frame it.  This, by the way, is only a small detail of the scarf, which measures nearly 6 feet in length.

I love the variety, the patterns, the uniqueness of each one.  I rarely wear them, but I can’t help myself from picking them up here and there.  Here’s the collection…

My favorites are vintage Vera and Liberty of London prints.  I also draw heavily from the ones with sentimental value.  And there you have it…a little eye candy for your Monday morning blues.

    DON’T HESITATE… DO FRAME IT.
    I AM A PAINTER AND ALSO INSPIRE MYSELF WITH MY SCARFS.

    YOU CAN ALWAYS TAKE IT OUT OF THE FRAME AND WEAR IT AFTER SOME TIME.


  2. What a gorgeous scarf! Clearly you are doing a good job molding those young minds – they have excellent taste!
