A Blog Entry You Can Really Scarf Up



Had an unprecedented few minutes to peruse blogs last night. (HA! OK...I'm kidding. But, I really don't spend as much time as my family thinks in the blogosphere. I'm on deadline for the PTA newsletter; I don't have time for that this week!)

Anyhow, came across bloggy friend, Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee who posted on a meme about scarves (thanks to Rachel at
Unexpected Blessings for hosting).

I have a long history with scarves (and some just plain long scarves). And, since I'm enjoying that awesome Southern snowstorm this morning...still...it seems right to tie up a few minutes of your time with a few photos and yarns about scarves. (I'll stop punning now.)



Why stop with just one scarf when you can wear two? I was in the high school color guard for two years. Purple ascot with the brown coat scarf (and the puffiest pom-poms at the end) made for a cool scarfy look (and quite warm as we got into November. Plus, the pom-poms let me cheer with the cheerleaders!).



Christmas caroling with the friends in high school. That scarf dates back a LONG time!!! The thickest scarf I have ever owned. A stand out over the bright green down parka, no? Then, there was the guy I liked who wore scarves....let's not go there.



Canoeing in Canada. Scarf isn't really appropriate in August, but "scarfing" a sweatshirt fills the gap nicely.



This scarf is also very old. My sisters and I all had a scarf that looked like this one, only in 4 different colors! (Way before the Wal-Mart smiley face.) My girls get to enjoy it now...or, at least, put it on a snowman.



And here is me, today, before going out in the snow, with my London-style scarfing.

It's London-style because my sister, who lived over there for a time, showed me how to tie it that way, as that's what all the folks over there do. Two years ago, I joined all my sisters and my mom there for a girls' weekend. My sister from Ohio bought everyone a scarf for the occasion. Who knew you could dramatically change a scarf by folding it in half first before wrapping it around your neck? (And that really did work against the drizzly, drafty London air!)



Ah...memories....

Scarves will do that for you!

I love wearing my scarves that way, they're so much warmer but I did not know it was called the London way! A friend showed me how to do it about 10 years ago. I'm originally from Buffalo so you find out how to make yourself as warm as possible!! Happy Monday :)
