Vintage Scarves: Photo via Christmas Wrapped
There are certain types of accessories that one cannot have enough of and I believe scarves fall into this category. From the 1940's to the 1980's designers such as Chanel, Hermes, Gucci, Valentino, Pucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vera produced gorgeous scarves with bold colors and a variety of designs.
I have a colorful vintage Vera scarf my mother gave me many years ago which I use frequently to accessorize my home. I hang it on lamps or if I need more color in a room I drape it over an end table. I searched around the web and found out what other people are doing with their vintage scarves.
Frame It If you have a favorite colorful scarf or a rare vintage designer scarf folded up in a drawer, framing it is a great way to show off a unique scarf in your home!

Wrap It Use your vintage scarves to wrap gifts. Wrapping paper gets thrown away and why not wrap a gift with something that can be reused. It's like two gifts in one!
