i couldn't have been any more creative with the title, right? i know.
you've probably guessed what this post is on, but allow me to elaborate. since i can remember, i've been collecting/obsessing over/buying scarves. out of all of my fetishes, (ahem...shoes, purses, cheap/tacky jewelry, jeans, sunglasses, white tank tops) this scarf thing has lasted the longest. fortunately, i've also never spent more than $10-$12 on a single scarf. (i guess if you count up how many i have, that's a loot of dough) but that is irrelevant and doesn't make me feel any guilt.
i realized this scarf thing was on a whole different level when my college roommate, sara, came back from her month abroad to england with a charming blue pashmina. i still adore it and after a few years and many more scarf additions, it is still one of my 'go-to's'. my scarf collection now not only includes scarves from all over the U.S., but many different countries around the world.
the obsession also hit a new high when i 'had' to buy a cute little rack at hobby lobby to give my beautiful accessories a home, where they wouldn't have to be wrinkled and ignored. not only did it give the scarves somewhere to hang out, it has always provided fun decoration on my bedroom wall.
so...without further ado and in no particular order, here is my cast of characters aka wall of scarves.
this first set are scarves i will always treasure and love. my grandma let me go through her scarf drawer, since she doesn't wear them anymore, and pick out ones i liked. these are all fabulous and go great tied tightly (but not too) around my neck.
Wow! How neat that so many are from different places. It makes them so special!
Now that's alot of scarves!!! What a great collection, especially when they each have such speical memories. I don't have ANY scarves...makes me want to start collecting too.
