Op Shop Mama has a Collection Selection link party up and going - that's the place for me to share because I always have a collection of some sort on the go. I always have collected something - some of those collections are long gone now - I get it honestly, my Mom had a collection of over 500 hankies, I guess you could say I have a hankie collection now because I have them all! Here is my basket full of Vera scarves - I need a new basket badly!
I've mentioned my Vera collection of scarves many times on my blog - that is Vera Neumann, not to be confused with Vera Bradley! Vera (1907-1993) was an American artist and entrepreneur best known for her boldly coloured linen patterns and scarves, signed "Vera" and many featuring her signature lucky "ladybug". I've been collecting them for a little over a year, I have 143 different scarves as well as three designs of napkins. I've bought most of these at thrift shops, never paying much more than $2 for a scarf. I've been really fortunate to receive some as gifts too, which I so appreciate. I hit the mother lode back in March - here's what I found - it was just the best day - for a Vera collector, anyway!!
There are so many designs - florals, geometrics, solids - various shapes - long, large square, small square, wing tip - I do wear them sometimes, the large square being my favorite.
Aren't they beautiful?
Op Shop Mama has a neat collection of vintage sifters, they are so nice - if you are a collector like me, you really need to check this out here. I am also linking with up with Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop
