Hermes Scarves



Al and I lived in California for four years in the 80's. He worked in San Francisco and I worked in Walnut Creek.

The stores in San Francisco were so wonderful. I was like a kid at Disney World. I had never even heard of some of them!!!

We would often drive back into the city on week-ends to play, ride the trolley, look for "movie stars", and eat, of course.

That's what we were doing the day that we wandered into the "Hermes Paris" Shop. I had never seen so many beautiful silk scarves, ties, purses, even saddles! in my whole life!

The very French sales clerk had on dark fitted jeans with a narrow leather belt, a crisp white shirt, and an Hermes scarf knotted at her throat. It made my knees wobble!

When Al saw how much I adored them, he asked me if I would like to have one. UH..."Yes, Please"!!!

This was my first one

The details in the scarves are amazing
Look at the bumble bees woven into the fabric

I got to pick this one out - I thought the perfume bottles were so whimsical

This one was a surprise from Al - I love the pastel blue border

This is my favorite - it's the one that I wore the most
The colors are so soft

My knees got a little wobbly again when I unwrapped these tonight...Oh, wait...that's just a little arthritis I think!!!

  2. These are great. I remember when I was first shopping for my mother in law at Christmas and didn't know what to get her my brother in law suggest getting her a scarf so she could go out and buy a new outfit to match it.

  8. Rhonda, these are magnificent! I don't own any Hermes scarves, but have always admired them. I have a friend who frames them and hangs them in her house. Thanks for sharing these fabulous pieces. My favorite is the Napoleon one.

    Hope you can stop by my place for a visit. I'm celebrating roosters each day this week. ~ Hyacinth

  10. WOW! Those are awesome! I'm sure they have increased in value since you got them. I think my favorite is the one with perfume bottles. I saw one framed as a piece of art once, and indeed they are.

    About meeting at Angels, I'd love to. Not sure how soon I can break away though. My Dad has terminal lung cancer and a weak heart, so I try to spend a lot of time with him. He is just beginning to get "bad" and have a lot of problems.

    But I'll keep in touch and maybe one day soon, we can sneak off! LOL!

    Enjoy your evening!

  12. Beautiful scarves, Rhonda!! You have a fabulous collection! Do you still wear them around your neck or are there other ways? I am not too smart with scarves, but here in the Midwest, I can do you up in a wool scarf on a 30 below day so that you look like a well dressed snowman!! lol!!

    Happy TOMT!! :-)
