Recently I came across a TON of my grandmother’s vintage scarves, tons of them, in an incredible range of colors, patterns and fabrics. Oh the inspiration!

There must have been 50 or 60 different scarves, collected over the same number of years. Some scarves were in great condition and some had pulls and small stains (from general use and wear). Seeing all these scarves I felt like I won a jackpot.

These 3 slightly worn scarves stuck out of the bunch.  The colors are not a combination I normally put together, but seeing them this way… I think I’m in love.

The colors remind me of a country garden kitchen with fresh vegetables, but caught on film and aged from the 1970’s. A Summer Garden of Love… :-)
