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

Foulard de la semaine

In honor of my recurring “packing for Paris” obsession, here’s my “H en Voyage” scarf, which depicts an Hermès “H” from stacked suitcases.

Happy 09/09/09!

    This might be my favourite — and it’s fun to see, in your earlier post featuring this same scarf, how different it looks when folded differently.

    I love it!

    Have never seen this design, what fun! And perfect on you! Anticipating a trip is one of the very best parts.

    A cute and jaunty design!

    I don’t know how you can do this every week.

    You could give lessons to Frenchwomen.

    These posts remind me that scarves with scenes look fantastically abstract when rolled and tied. I instinctively avoid them, but ALWAYS love them on you, doll!

    That is damn cute! BTW, pondering options for your ring today! Thinking white metal is a must.

    I´m always happy to see your scarves! I admit that here is a bit envy on my side, cause I just can´t make mine work.

    I love the simplicity and whimsy of this scarf. And, of course, it is lovely on you.

    Nancy – thanks!

    materfamilias – yes, it’s fun to see how many looks one can get from a single scarf based on how it’s folded and tied.

    Rita – thank you. This is one of my favorite color combinations.

    Sher – thanks! autumn colors are my faves!

    SewingLibrarian – thank you!

    Duchesse – merci! Yes, I’ve been a bit preoccupied, but in the best of ways.

    Sue – thank you!

    Sal – I used to avoid them too until I figured out that you can hide or highlight any part of the design depending on how you tie it. Thanks!

    metscan – glad you enjoy. It took lots of practice before I began to feel comfortable with wearing scarves. Start simple and just play in front of the mirror. Then forget you have it on. 😉

    Make Do Style – thanks so much!

    La Belette Rouge – merci beaucoup.

    tishjett – merci, you are too kind!
