Fun with color


I am almost always cold which is one of the reasons I chose to move to Arizona. Trouble is that everything is over air conditioned for me and carrying around a jacket all the time is a pain in the butt. I have figured out a way to brighten up my wardrobe inexpensively AND stay comfortable. I am known around here as the shawl lady. As part of my clean up and reorganize projects today, I decided to organize my shawl collection as well. These hang on a wall in my back hallway to the garage where I can grab one on my way out. These are not real pashmina's but the cheap ones. They work fine for my needs and certainly are cheaper than a bunch of jackets. Plus they never go out of style. Eye candy for sure.

Sherryl, , am forever carting around jackets cause I freeze to death when I go out somewhere cause the AC is so cranked up. Thank you for the best solution I've ever heard to my same problem.

And they look so good hanging on the wall, your own little piece of art for the hallway. My collection of shawls starts tomorrow!

I think you've inspired me also! What a beautiful collection and I love the color...so simple and yet such an elegant idea!

I know how you feel. we are always discussing went to turn on the a/c. when I'm comfortable hubby is roasting. I have several of these as well - one is too big I'm going to add some pleats to make it a more manageable size
