    That is a beautiful scarf. And, I must get a scarf ring.

    Lovely autumn colours — has this scarf been to Paris yet? will it soon be going?

    I love the scarf ring — so elegant — but is it bad it makes me think of something we used to use on our extra-long t-shirts back in the ’80s? 🙂

    Vintage is even better when a peice comes with a provenance.
    Perfect color for Fall.

    I really do love all your posts with you and the scarves. You make it look so easy. And they always look fabulous on you!

    I’ve really wanted one of those Hermes rings ever since I first saw all the things Mai Tai did with hers. Do you find it a useful ring, DP?

    Kalee – thank you! You’re too kind.

    Marsi – actually yes, I find this is my most-used scarf ring. The horn material is quite light, so it stays in place, and the color is neutral enough to wear with just about any scarf.

    Rita – thank you! Having a scarf ring or two really does expand the styling options.

    materfamilias – thanks, this one has not yet been to Paris. I may take it along on this trip.

    Lisa – thank you. Yes, it’s a very light silk chiffon. The scarf is at least 45 years old, maybe older. But it’s holding up well!

    WendyB – oh you’re right! I remember those!

    LBR – thanks! I love that ochre color, which for some reason is looking brighter yellow on my monitor than it actually is.

    Belle – thank you. And yes, this scarf will always be special, but I’m especially glad it’s in my favorite colors.

    Lovely scarf une femme, have you started ‘packing’ (in your mind at least) for Paris – will you do a post on clothing you are going to take? :-)(please!)

    Proof- 45 years’ worth- that scarves are investments. Lovely!

    Just beautiful and even more special because it belonged to your grandmother. Is it silk chiffon?

    That colour is so rich. It makes me think of butternut squash soup. It seems I am hungry. Well, your scarf is delicious.
