  1. Oh, my gosh! Another really, really fabulous capsule! Sent me off to learn about Helen Ruth. That scarf is absolutely beautiful! And the combinations you pulled together are really, really wonderful! Thanks for my morning smile and dose of inspiration!

  2. Love it, the rick colors of fall are amazing!

    I have a request: Could you do a "what to wear" with a GM dip dye? (I just got the Bouclerie d'Attelage in coulis/framboise/encre: )

    Keep up the good job!

  3. Great colors.
    Cool new banner, too.

  4. I've so enjoyed your last couple/three posts. It's fun to see the pops of colors, as in the turquoise and hot pinks, but then I love the fall stuff, too. Your new header is PERFECT; perfect!!

  5. Never heard of Helen Ruth before, but this is a beautiful scarf and your combinations are equally beautiful.

  6. Oh Janice! Thank you so much! You have worked wonders with this scarf. I love all the outfits you have styled. ann :-)

  7. Janice -- After much hemming and hawing and a few e-mails with Helen Ruth in Aberdeen, I have ordered this beautiful scarf and cannot wait for it to arrive from the UK. I have many things similar to how you have styled this. And, I really love that I was able to "meet" the artist/designer in cyberspace. I let her know about your blog ... she commented on how beautifully you styled the scarf and she posted a link to the blog on her facebook page. Looks like you have another fan. THANKS!!
