Favourite Things Friday

My favourite thing this week has been a favourite for quite a time and I have quite a collection.  Back in the 80's or it may have been early 90's I use to go about pay day and look at the new scarves at the Tie Rack and I would usually come home with 1 maybe 2.  I had quite a collection.  Then came change in jobs and then marriage and motherhood and I forgot about the collection for a while.  Probably scarves went out of fashion ... well the big square ones with multi colours did anyway.

Then last year one of the mum's at school started working for a scarf wholesaler distributing scarves to boutiques and she would bring the occasional 2nd's to school to sell to the mum's... and of course I was tempted.  This year she has set up a little shop in her garage which is open a couple of times a week which is even more tempting.


Do I have to tell you that I get frequent buyer discount.... it is very handy for birthdays' but somehow I always manage to come out with a scarf or 2 for myself.  Today I saw a scarf very similar to one I bought a couple of weeks ago (it was a 2nd which I picked up for $5 slightly different fringe I didn't worry about looking at the price but it wasn't a cheap shop that I was in so it was probably pretty pricy) featured in photo right (the dark one I forgot that I even had).

These are a couple of my everyday winter scarves.
Want to see more FTF head on over to Mrs P's and see what everyone else is talking about.

I love scarves. I'm kind of upset it's not yet cool enough to wear them!

Lovely scarves. I wish I was better at accesorising! Happy FTF!

What a pretty collection you have! Lovely on, and perhaps even more so with several hung together. :-)

That's quite a scarf collection there Ms. Amanda.

Like Thea Im scarf challenged, although I do a have a few. I tend to wear them all the same way (knotted round my neck )

You'll have to give us all lessons in accessorising!

Lovely colours - I go in and out with scarves, but warm ones are always in with the winter coming.

love that purpley/pink plaid one - i love scarves too - my husband bought me a kimono stand and it's covered in scarves - the problem is which to wear!

Lovely scarfs!
I always wished I looked better in scarfs. But somehow I never feel I quite pull them off.
Mind you I'm not very good at accessorising in general these days either, but I'm sure I'll get back to it when my kids are a bit older!
