What is it about the fabric that speaks to me? Rather it shouts to me "Hostess!"
I love it for dish cloths, slip covers and pillows as well.
Currently I do not own any linen garments and am on the hunt for a dress to wear this summer.
A few years ago I owned a few really baggy billowy tops and a pair of wide legged trousers.
I am trying to get away from too much volume in my clothes these days.
You may recall that I recently purchased a white and black linen long scarf. The texture is an irregular weave and the scarf has not been laundered yet so it is very crisp ~ almost stiff.
I may hand wash this sooner rather than later as I can see that it may irritate my neck in the heat.
I'll be using Aveda Shampure to gently wash it and then hang to dry...ironing will be necessary but not on a regular basis ~ just after laundering.
The easiest way to wear a long scarf is wrap it around your neck
ends towards the back and bring them back to the front looping them through and letting the ends hang down.
Not being crazy about symmetry I like to have one end shorter than the other.
You can see how crisp this is as it stands up strongly rather than flowing softly.
This scarf was half price when I purchased it new and still it was a wee shock to my wallet...
nowhere near as dear as Hermes but up there with the Tilo one that I bought before Christmas.
Climbing Royal Sunset Rose
the perfect shade of apricot
which reminds me of orange sherbet
and our darling Isla!
Our two resident felines really miss us when we go out.
They are great company for each other though!
Our roof and gutter projects are finished and Mr. HB is working on the deck repairs...
he is building new railings in his spare time so I don't imagine our deck will be completed until mid summer.
The Humble Bungalow Garden keeps me busy and out of mischief
of course there is an absolutely adorable 3 year old
a red headed little Miss who loves to play and have tea parties!
All she needs to do is ask and Grammy will come ~ a~ running!
On the agenda this week...
a pedicure and a hair cut.
What have you got on your do list this week?
Hope things are ticking along nicely in your neck of the woods.
