Silk Discovery

A friend of mine recently sent me a link to a lovely woman’s scarf “shop” on etsy.com.  For those of you that don’t know, Etsy is a site that allows artistic people to sell their handmade creations via the internet.  I love this concept, because it allows you to buy beautiful creations directly from the creator.  Most of the prices are very reasonable, but even if some things cost a few dollars more, I will gladly pay that to support small businesses and be able to forge a relationship with the person that makes the products.  For me, that relationship is so important and something that my generation is often lacking.  Anyway, I messaged the woman, talked a bit, picked a scarf, and just received it in the mail!  It’s beautiful, colourful, and light.  I love the paneling and that it’s the perfect size to wrap around my head.  Anyway, her name is Norma, and you should check out her creations here.

Here is the scarf I ordered:

The first wrap that I did, I used a purple israeli scarf to bring out the purple hues in the green one:

 

 

The second wrap (which I’m wearing today) is my father’s influence.  He spoke to me recently, telling me about a woman that he saw on the subway wearing a really cool headwrap.  He tried to describe it as best he could, telling me that the ends were hanging down on both sides like hair, and this is my attempt at recreating what he told me!

  1. I love that your dad is scoping headwraps on the subway…. give him a challenge and tell him to take secret photos with his cell phone! LOL

    OHHH there is an idea! How about photos of random wrappers on the street! I never see anyone here … just me 😦

    • Haha my family totally anti-smartphone but even if he did have one, I’m sure ladies would be creeped out if my dad was caught snapping photos of them! It’s definitely something that I am thinking of doing, however… certainly when I’m back in Jersualem!

  2. Love the scarf from Etsy. I went to the site and looked at all the lovely scarves. Awesome. I may have to get one for myself. I agree with Izbthcldwll, I would love to see photos of others who cover as no one does so where I am either.
