Words I like:

Scarf score

I scored a great batch of 1960s-70s scarves at the thrift store. When I find a whole collection of a certain type of item, I usually scour the store in the hopes that I'll find something else the same person donated. In this case, I just got the scarves.

The bright, almost acidic, colors jumped out at me. The one in the middle with the orange blocks on a dark blue background is my favorite and I wore it right away. Four of them are long tie-shaped scarves. I'll try to find a dog-earred or white collared dress to wear them with.

Hello Jo! Hope you're good! I love a vintage scarf, the prints make me so happy and you've got a fine selection there. Franca made a gorgeous top from old scarves in a previous blog post which I've been meaning to copy for a while: http://www.oranges-and-apples.com/2011/11/handmade-scarf-top-and-new-hair.html
