TEAM SCARF MISTRESS 2022
- Oct 5, 2018
We are! I think it’s such a marvel. I didnt keep the pink/etoupe Grande Theatre Nouveaux because it just wasn’t enough around my neck, even though it was beautiful. This pink with the graphics is so much better for me.Thank you so much. We are twins on Lanternes, aren't we?
So many things to Love about this on you. The border looks great against the dark top. Those sun streaks are front and center, and that blue around the neck is such a nice Blue. Congratulations on picking a cw. Wonderful brooch
Dear Nomad, thank you for your lovely observations, you always have such valuable input ❤️. I returned the yellow cw, which I loved but it didn’t do a thing for me. I agree about the blue. And the orange hem is arresting. And then there’s that aubergine. I am twins with my dear LKBNOLA, too! The brooch is a recent find!So many things to Love about this on you. The border looks great against the dark top. Those sun streaks are front and center, and that blue around the neck is such a nice Blue. Congratulations on picking a cw. Wonderful brooch
Great examples and great styling, Lkb. I love your treehouse story. For me, Le Potager Extraordinaire reminds me of my Italian grandfather lovingly tended hisbamazing vegetable garden right up to his passing. It was a labor of love.I am going to be traveling for a few days so I am relying on older photos. Giving a hat tip here to twins and sisters -- sharing Le Potager Extraoridinaire, which besides all the adorable vignettes that @Redbirdhermes pointed out yesterday reminds me of the treehouse my father built for us to play and read in when we were children. I loved it so much that my husband and I later built one for our own kids.

I do not have my Zabavushka with me, as I wear it in the winter months, but as @Nomad pointed out, it is full of toys, dolls and other playthings, depicting as it does, an actual museum of Russian folk toys. Here's a photo from last December:

@Maedi's sweet Le Jeu de Petits Bonheurs reminds me of a board game, all manner of which which my family loves to play, so here is Le Tour du Monde en 63 Cases-- a scarf that even came with a pair of dice!

And finally, @xincinsin mentioned adult coloring books and lately I spend quite a lot of time sitting at a very small table on a very small chair while my granddaughter imperiously commands me to draw a cat or a rabbit or a truck with this color or that color of her choosing. So here is A Vos Crayons!

As I've mentioned before, it reminds me of my house after a visit from my 2 year-old GS.

There are some amazing colours in this one! Is there navy along with the aubergine? Wonderful and congrats!!
This is a lovely cw-- another example of the colors changing the dynamic of a scarf. I have the teal version of this and it feels quite a bit different @labelo. I love Katie Scott too and have non-scarf items of hers as well...It's been borderline too hot for scarves of late, but I got one of the new Hourglass holiday palettes featuring artwork by Katie Scott and decided to pull out my Les Toucans by the same artist as today's SOTD.

There are two other palette variations, one with tigers and the other butterflies.
Thank you @Maedi-- this was on y wish list for a long time and although I was iffy about some parts of the cw it really is quite a magical blue! @Redbirdhermes and I are triplets with @Nomad as well. I hardly ever see this design and would love to see your cw. I know only of @croisette's cheerful yellow one...
Very emotional and evocative for any pet lover dear @Karenska...Thank you, Lkbnola. I lost it, too, when I saw her Corgis Muick and Sandy and Fell pony, Emma. What a day….
This is fantastic @Redbirdhermes and is there any end to your talents? This is Ledoux? Fabulous scarf.Pulling out a vintage Ledoux for today. I actually lettered in golf in high school, so I have a soft spot for the game.

Oh so beautiful and such a wonderful theme connection @CMHou! I forgot about this one! I have the reissue in a 70 size love it. Yours is so lovely on your blue top. I am wondering how you tied it...View attachment 5615518 The first Hermès carré ever represents a game: Jeu des Omnibus et Dames Blanches. It was first issued in 1937, and I suspect it was to celebrate the centennial of the house, founded in 1837. Artist Hugo Grygkar took inspiration from a 19th-century board game in Emile Hermès’s personal collection.
That is a great color combination @Nomad!
Oh it really shines on the black and cream tops @Maedi! Love your gold chains too. I am over the moon to have finally become your twin (via the magical intervention of our amazing @Snausages). And @Nomad's too. I really had a coup de foudre for this design/cw from the minute I saw it. H color magic for sure...
You definitely need this one if you are a Pierre Marie fan @Nomad! My DH calls this red one my "candy cane" scarf There are a lot of lovely cws out there and it is definitely not hard to find...Wowza! These are all amazing looks! But that potager is . Is Tour in a braid? The graphics are so dense I’m not 100% sure. how do I not own this
Oh, so lovely @Karenska! Thank you so much for helping me decide on this one when I was unsure earlier in the season. So happy we both settled o this lovely cw. It is a wonderful "meta" scarf design and while the cw that @Redbirdhermes has is the best in my opinion for the design (it shows the Bees, the trees and the Greek keys to the fullest), this one is beautiful on you! Nice to see you back
What a lovely association to have dear Karenska and thank you!Great examples and great styling, Lkb. I love your treehouse story. For me, Le Potager Extraordinaire reminds me of my Italian grandfather lovingly tended hisbamazing vegetable garden right up to his passing. It was a labor of love.
Gorgeous! I don’t know a cw or a format of Kachinas that I don’t love. The graphics and artwork, the way the design ties, the extraordinary colors, whether a 90, a giant triangle, or a maxi twilly, it’s just the perfect scarf. Here’s one of mine, fitting in with the last three weeks’ of themes: Autumn, Breathless, and Toys.Like @Nomad, I also thought of dolls, and my SOTD is a doll of a different kind. According to a post I found, "Kachina dolls have long been a tradition among the Hopi tribes. They also have spiritual significance for the Navajo and are commonly crafted by Navajo artists." I used to have a doll collection that was started by my grandmother. She brought me a doll from anywhere she traveled, usually in native costume. I did not consider them playthings but a cherished collection (perhaps a precursor to my scarf collecting propensities ). She never brought me a Kachina doll, but now I have a scarf full of them!

Wonderful post, dear LKB, thinking of Sebastian and his Caribbean accent . Magnificent cw of UTW, beautiful on you, and a sweet recollection. I think @MAGJES is your twin and once gave me a big thimbs up on this cw, but I didn’t acquire it. My loss. Safe travels and blessings as you begin your holy days.I will be leaving to spend the Jewish New Year holiday with my family at the crack of dawn tomorrow but I wanted to post another scarf that reminds me so much of childhood. In my case, my siblings and I loved to snorkel and because we lived in the Antilles, the sea life was beautiful and abundant. We even had a little glass bottom dinghy so we could see the fish and coral reefs even as we rowed to shore from our sailboat! Later my own kids and grandkids loved, loved, loved two Disney movies that I associate with the title of this scarf: Under the Waves. Shirley's beautiful ocean graphics definitely call to mind the sweet and silly creatures in the Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo... Now, if you know it, break into the chorus of "Under the Sea"
...Under the sea
We got no troubles
Life is all bubbles
Under the sea...

Thank you, dear Karenska. Scarf and sample lipstick are beautiful. Is this cw 05?
Beautifully said. I agree that it's a marvel and unique in its color. I always am drawn to beige on scarves and there are so many nuances of beige.We are! I think it’s such a marvel. I didnt keep the pink/etoupe Grande Theatre Nouveaux because it just wasn’t enough around my neck, even though it was beautiful. This pink with the graphics is so much better for me.
