Monday's Muster #32

A "girlie" collection today, scarves and hankies. A lot of these I inherited from my mother otherwise I wouldn't have much of a collection. That also means some of them go back to the 50s. Below are scarves in various sizes.

This one my mother made in the early 70s.  I have worn it around my neck with a deep pink T.  Kinda neat.

I've never worn this one but just bought it because it's so psychedelic. Do you see "Love" on the right?

This is an older, smaller one of my mother's. Looks like a Pat Prichard design, but it is unsigned.

Some hankies below. Again, a lot of these were my mother's.

This one my sister picked up for me at a thrift shop. Rather "50s," wouldn't you say?

Another one from my thrifty sister.

These I picked up at thrift shops-- they make great Valentine "doilies" for display.

These two were actually mine as a child. I remember tucking one into my white Easter purse to go to church and Grandma's.

I decided to show these since I keep them in the same box with the hankies and scarves. Old 1950s collars. The beaded one on the bottom is pretty fancy.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, and in case you're wondering why part of this post was shot outdoors-- I started shooting outside because it was a beautiful day but too windy. The scarves started blowing away!


  1. You've got some beautiful scarves and hankies there. I always like the ones from the 60's and 70's the best.

    My mom just gave me 2 hankies yesterday - one that was my grandma's and one that was hers.

  2. What a wonderful collection! I have some of my mom's hankies too. They're so pretty. I never use them, because we all use Kleenex now. But I like to carry one in my purse - if I remember to carry a purse. LOL

  3. Such a great collection! I have a small hanky collection. There just some beautiful designs out there.

  4. Interesting scarfs and hankies. I remember those collars. We used to wear a cardigan backwards and wear those collars.

  5. These are all so pretty. I especially love the children's hankies! How special to have some of your own! Enjoy your evening my friend! Hugs!

  6. Love the groovy 60s patterns your scored this time!

  7. Definitely evoke another era, don't they? You occasionally see scarves but hankies are not used at all anymore it seems. And those collars are lovely Diane!
