Winter’s Last Gasp

For the past two days here in the Southern mountains it has been rainy, sleety and cold.  But hopefully this is really the end of winter, and the weatherman is my new BFF, as he has predicted sunny skies and highs in the 60s and 70s for the next five days.  All I can say is that he’d better deliver.

I thought about saving this fantastic skating theme scarf for December, but then I realized that a good scarf is a good scarf, regardless of the theme and the time of year.

That must be the crazy scarf elf.  Is he matchmaking?

That little tyke is going to learn to skate whether he wants to or not!

Skate tag?


And I want to say a huge “Thank You” to Juliet of SixCatsFun Vintage for sending this lovely gift.  I don’t know what I’ve done to create such a nice bunch of readers, but believe me, I’m so grateful for all of you.

  1. Lizzie….you have a nice bunch of readers BECAUSE your blog is FULL of interesting information ! Thanks for sharing.


  2. Thank you Lizzie, truly I’m so lucky to have your blog in my life. Don’t you wish we knew who drew this scarf? So much social info in just a few brushstrokes. I didn’t notice the matchmaking the elf was doing.


  3. Nice begets Nice Lizzie. We all think of you when we see vintage sporting or traveling themes!


  4. Love your blog! We have snow in Minnesota this afternoon, just when we thought we were in the clear for Spring, with Robins and Blue Jays here too!


  5. Oh what a wonderful gift to receive!! You totally deserve loads of blogger love as you work so hard to deliver such a wonderful source of joy and very, very useful historical information:). That scarf is a darling and there is so much to look at, it’s like a painting! I’ve got my fingers crossed for you for some sunshine:) xoxo


  6. So jealous of your scarf – and your weather! Sun finally shining here. Have a vintage scarf post up my sleeve that I think may appeal..will go and dig it out! x


  7. The addition of the elves is a bizarre! I echo the sentiments of others — your blog is a delight to read and I know it takes a lot of time and effort to do such thoughtful posts.


  8. Hello,

    I’ve nominated this beautiful blog for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

    Take a look at this:



  9. Lovely scarf! So much going on – it’s like a mini 1950s Brueghel scene!
