Foulard de la semaine - une femme d'un certain âge

Foulard de la semaine

Here is the “Les Toits de Paris” (Rooftops of Paris) carré again, this time worn with my olive green Talbot’s sweater. I finally worked out how to tie this one so the mice are visible.

The pictures make the scarf look more bright orange than it really is. It’s more of a rust color. You can see more accurate color here.

    The scarf is very cute and I’m liking the olive & orange colour combo!

    Seeing you in this just proves why a camel sweater would not be the best colour on you. Lighthearted scarf and beautiful colours with the sweater.

    Love the French rodents; they remind me of Ratatouille! Have I mentioned that I ended up getting that exact same Talbots sweater?

    Adorable. How clever of you to tie it just right to showcase the little critters.

    Ah! Comme les petit souris sont mignons! Great scarf — I want one! (although I can’t wear that orange at all)

    Taking a clue from you I posted the scarf that I wore today…I can’t even come to grips with how old my scarf is…

    Beautiful coloring on you and those mice are so cute. Like Nancy said does remind me of Ratatouille 🙂

    That’s Not My Age – thank you! I love this color combo too.

    Duchesse – I think I could wear camel as long as I paired it with a more upbeat color. The problem with the sweater was more the fit than the color. But I’m finding

    Erin – me too…they’re what pushed me over the edge when I was considering the purchase.

    Nancy – thanks! I always think of Ratatouille when I’m improvising in the kitchen. Isn’t it the best sweater?? I wear mine a lot. And they’re on sale now, in case you want to pick up in other colors.

    Sue – thank you! Part of the fun of many Hermès scarf designs is playing with the folds and ties to highlight different bits.

    Materfamilias – thanks! This particular scarf was done in many different colorways…I’ll bet there’s one out there that’s right for you.

    Sher – thanks! That was such a fun movie, wasn’t it?

    Belle – but that’s the wonderful thing about a great scarf…they really have staying power. Yours looks marvelous on you, perfect colors!

    WendyB – you have such a way with words… 😉

    Marieanne – thank you very much! J’adore the little rodent family.
