Hello and welcome to the first post of a new week. I have spent quite a lot of time over the weekend sorting out hundreds of photos of my Hermès’ scarves. Up until about two years ago, I had put all of these images into folders on my iPad, but my organisation slipped during the worst COVID times. My plan is to finish getting them all into proper folders, weed out unsatisfactory photos, make a record of the date when each folder has been completed, and then make myself keep them up-to-date.
The next part of the plan is labelling all of my scarf boxes. I bought the labels ages ago, but procrastinated as usual! Then I intend to fill a plastic pocket for each scarf with the receipt, some modelling photos and any tags that I have removed from the scarf. That way, I will have the full details for insurance purposes and also for my family when I am no longer here. Even my small Hermès collection is quite valuable and I want to make it as easy as possible for family members to deal with them.
Later on today, I may be able to finish the initial weeding and sorting, which will be great! It has been interesting looking through the collection. I have been able to work out how often I have worn each scarf and I have been quite surprised to see that I haven’t taken some out of their boxes for ages! This has spurred me on with my plan to wear as many of my more expensive scarves as possible. I have to face up to the knowledge that I must wear them at home because I so rarely go out. There’s nothing wrong with wearing a beautiful silk scarf with pyjamas, is there?
I must choose a lovely one for today… you will see it on Friday.
Right, now is the time when I show you something that caught my eye on Twitter:
I just adore those gorgeous colours, although it wouldn’t do for my tea drinking!
Love and best wishes,
Sounds like a fun and rewarding, though time consuming, project! And certainly a pajama and a carré go great together!
Thank you, Anne, for your message. In fact I’m wearing my pyjamas with a lovely scarf today! All will be revealed in Friday’s post.
Best wishes, Anne x
