Vera Neumann Scarfs

I stopped at the Goodwill in McHenry yesterday.  Lately, they haven't had a lot of items.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the store overflowing with items.  It seems that they have gotten a lot of donations, even some estate sales have donated items.  I found a miniature green lady figure for 49 cents and 3 Vera Neumann scarfs for $1.99 each.  I love finding Vera items. I usually look for her tablecloths or napkins.  They will have her name, Vera, on it followed by a ladybug.  I haven't looked for her scarfs, but found these 3 while just walking past the rack holding them.  I caught her name out of the corner of my eye.  It was a nice surprise!    The company is no longer in business.  Her designs are usually bright and eye catching.

I worked on getting the bed in my guest room ready for the summer weather.  I found a chenille hand embroidered coverlet at a garage sale a few years back for $3, and finally put it on the bed.  I always use hand embroidered pillowcases on the bed that I change with the seasons.  The 2 pillows on the bed, I made with vintage fabric and one is from an old chenille bedspread that had holes in it.  I made the bedskirt many years ago using a flat sheet and then sewed on vintage handkerchiefs.  It turned out nicely and it's a great way to display my handkerchief collection.
