An Italian Scarf in a Japanese Way!

This week there are going to be a few thank yous on Freshly Found!  The first one goes to Linda - of Marcella Mia in Hillcrest and of the blog of Prim on a Whim!  It's because of her I was able to make this lovely Furoshiki Bag from a gorgeous vintage scarf.


 The scarf belonged to her mother who used to own Marcella - a landmark gift and decor shop in our area! Linda has recently re-opened her late mom's shop and combined it with her own creative interests.  I decided to go in and introduce myself to Linda the other day.  What a delightful meeting - and because she had read my blog and knows what I love to do - I walked away with a packet full of her mom's old vintage scarves!
I decided to tie this one into a decorative Furoshiki storage bag for some of my wool.  - Practical Storage and it shows the scarf off too!



Thank you so much Linda - I look forward to popping in one bright day soon to take some pics of your shop!

Hi, sorry that I didn't wrote the source of photos on my blog, but I forgot where I have found them :). But I mentioned, that I found them in web. It is really great idea. And I think that whole your blog is just lovely.

We are lucky to have such lovely shops on our doorstep. Can you believe I only discovered the shop a few weeks ago. I must pop back soon.
