Dressed Up Vintage Wool Scarves and Fingerless Gauntlets

It's so exciting here in Texas that our weather has finally gotten cool...

Maybe that's why I'm already "cozying up"  to thicker fabrics and soft wools.
I pulled these gorgeous vintage and antique wool shawls from inventory and
Decided to dress them up a bit.



First altering with laces ....


Then some with ribbons and such.....
It's a nice way to update an old look bringing a garment back to life.

Then, of course, I had to have this glorious hand crocheted
kettle dyed wool yarn Victorian "scarflette" and fingerless gauntlets.
A dear, sweet customer of mine makes these and
Does such a beautiful job.

Look for these to be for sale in the Shoppe soon...
they are luscious.


Thanks for stopping by today,
You know I love it when you come :)

Happy Weekend........
