Pink Saturday!

The Queen Mum and I share the same birthday, August 4th!
And she's wearing PINK!!!!
This is a photo from the 90s, before photoshop!!!!
My DH took a picture of me in St Paul's Cathedral in front of a poster display. I added the white glove of Queen Mum tucked under my arm!
Makes us chums ! The scarf under neath the pansy celebrates the 100th birthday of my friend!!!!

In the 70s and 80s, scarves were the essential accessory! So I went back to see what I had 25-30 years ago!

I love the pink tones in your scarves. They are lovely. I'm amazed you held on to them. I've never had the space. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Your scarves are all gorgeous, just look at the patterns and all the colors. They were also very popular, I remember when they were worn around the neck and always on a ponytail, Happy Pink Saturday and thankyou for the lovely post, Char
