Some scarves, recent finds
Nice pastel colours in this Daniel Hechter scarf: mauve, turquoise blue on white
Unusual silk scarf with tarot cards - in French - in glowing, jewel colours
No label, but made for the French market as the titles are in French.
Another black silk crepe mourning scarf
It has that wonderful 'scrunch' that good silk crepe has.
This large red and white scarf is a souvenir of Paris
and has the Eiffel Tower as the 'A' in Paris...now sold
This is a 1950s/1960s mantilla - to be worn to cover the head when in church
In black spotty net and a lacy style edging.
A silk Christian Dior square
In lovely almost pastel colours, with a smart navy frame
and finally a long scarf from Pierre Balmain
which always reminds me of the Peter Sarsted song 'Where Do You Go To My Lovely...'
Not that you would want to wear a scarf in 40 degrees C! We managed to get to two vide greniers today but didn't really find many treasures. All the stallholders were too hot - some had very little shade, and there was a lethalgic, languid feel to the proceedings.
Still, we should enjoy it while we can - sorry to anyone with rain - can we swap please!
