My Collection of Vintage Scarves

Once in a while I mention my vintage scarves but never show many of them. I have collected them fervently over the years and was quite brave to extend their use, hence these were created: a shirt, a balloon dress, a scarf, and some feathered friends.

As you can see they are intended for children and the patterns are quite varied, colorful and attractive. I don't have a favourite because how could I pick just one from all these beauties?

The reason for this post is actually this pin that set me thinking what would a top look like if I combine several of them.

I love the little blue birds in the tree!
Since I saw your shirt that I want to make one to myself!
Maybe next year, when my belly will be back to normal (hopefully!)! ;)

Hi, Maya

Oh my, I am drooling over those lovely scarves. I love vintage scarves. My collection is not as big as your, but I do love to collect them. I buy a lot of them and give them to my sister who loves them very much. I carry one in my purse all the time. They are so feminine and the patterns on some of them are just beautiful.

Thanks for sharing your collection.

Vanessa
