Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Children of all ages! Step right up and enjoy TangoTosca's Circus of the Scarves!

I have been a long-time lurker and now recent poster to the Scarf of the Day thread. All the wonderful ladies over there have been so complimentary about my scarf collection, I thought I would start my own thread to display them, especially since some of these are "Grail Scarves" and others are seldom seen on the Purse Forum.

I considered making a scarf game out of it, but perhaps that will come later down the road

So in the same spirit as VickyB's incredible Scarf Profiles, may I present:

De Passage a Tokyo
Hermes en Voyage
Faites vos Jeux
Belles du Mexique
Beloved India
Jonques et Sampans
Hola Flamenca
Carre Kantha
Chasse en Inde
Chevaux de France
Le Monde est Vast
Les Clefs
Retour a la Terre
Les Triples
Grand Apparat
Escales Mediterrannes
Fantasie Pittoresque
Grands Fonds
Soies Volantes
Lumieres de Paris
Peuple du vent
Chasse en Inde
Alphabet Russe
Hola Flamenca
Pelages et Camoflage
Hommage a Mozart
La Femme aux Semelles de Vent
Brides Rebelles
Tout en Carre

Thank you HannahSophia, birkel, EmilyL, and Greentea for such an immediate response! Thanks for being here.

Which one is my favorite? I like different scarves for different reasons, and they all seem to have their own distinct personality, and which clothes they will and will not play nicely with

I do believe my current favorite is my black Hommage a Mozart. Like many others on this thread I love music, especially opera (see my avatar!), so the subject matter of the scarf speaks to me and the colors are just beautiful.

Don't worry, every scarf will get it's own little profile including folded, tied, and, ummm... full-frontal shots

I will admit that some of these pictures have already appeared in the SOTD thread, but I hope you all won't mind seeing again for a second time.

Well, I suppose it would only be fair if we started off with my current favorite

Today's first performer is Hommage a Mozart, designed by Julie Abadie in 1991 to mark the 200th anniversary of the great composers death. After all, what's a circus without some excellent music to pep up the action??

I love this unbelievably beautiful coloway, it is much more dramatic and striking than the light blue cw more commonly seen.

I know it was only released once, but if anyone has any further information about it, such as if it was strictly a limited edition, I'd love to learn more about it.
