I want to frame a scarf, which is of course a not very original design world idea. Just check out Pinterest for all the gazillion examples of this look.
Specifically however I would like blue and white and ideally a map.
I love this the most, from Table Tonic (only available in store) which Louise posted on Instagram yesterday:
I actually have a couple of Hermes scarves, as I mentioned in this post, which I contemplated wearing when I had no hair. You know in the end I never wore a scarf when I was bald. I just did not like the people staring which went with it. The expression of someone who looks sad and shocked and sympathetic and pitying all at one time and then quickly tries to disguise it because they feel bad is something you only want to see a few times.
The sadness for me is that the colours of my scarves, given to me by my mother, really don't suit me. In fact when you browse Hermes designs, some of them are just not that easy to wear. Maybe that is why people have started framing them.
Here is another with a map in it (actually looks like the same designer as the one above):

The ones I like tend to be older. Like this:
This is from 1969, design by Francoise de la Perriere.
Or this one, from One Kings Lane, which is a 2000 design.
And this amazing collage (sorry lost source), has some beautiful little blue and white in it.
I can see this is going to be a long term project.
Weekend in Melbourne this weekend. Lots to do including:

Have a lovely weekend. If you want to see what I cook I will try to remember to post it on Instagram.
