If you are here for the first time due to the scarf carnival, welcome.
I am Linda, or Lidna, depending on how fast I'm typing.
I love scarves. In fact, yesterday I wrote a post containing an ode to scarves to the tune of "Teach Your Children Well" with apologies to Crosby, Stills and Nash. (Did I mention that I'm old?) You should check it out; I think it could be a hit.
Most of the scarves pictured here were purchased at Target or TJ Maxx or even Walmart for $5.00. But the solid grape-colored one came from my daughter who brought it to me from London, and another is a purple scarf which I crocheted for myself in another life or when an alien possessed me. Donny Osmond liked purple, too, apparently even purple scarves, but he married someone else who probably didn't even care for purple very much. His loss.
Plaids, solids, brights, stripes, crocheted, silky or pastels, I love them all. When I die, I want my body to be wrapped in my scarves like an Egyptian princess, kind of like this but with more scarves:
I have about 18 scarves. I decided to hang them on one bedroom wall because they were crowding my closet and they're so colorful. So I bought two unfinished shelves at Hobby Lobby, painted them white and hung the scarves. Here are my pastels:
And here are my brighter scarves:
And now I shall model a couple of them.
The "Larry King Background" polka dots.
The leopard. With a smirk.
Christmas scarf. Dog scarf, sorta.
Finally, here is why I always wear a scarf--Look what happens when I don't. It makes me ugly and traumatizes my children:
If you'd like to see an excellent video about how to tie scarves, check out Melanie of Big Mama as she has provided a video with several scarf-tying alternatives.
Thanks to Rachel, hosting this carnival at Unexpected Blessings!
