Before moving to the East Bay, I lived in San Francisco for six years. And if you've ever lived in or visited San Francisco, you know that it's imperative to dress in layers. Warm days quickly turn into chilly afternoons when the fog rolls in. One of my favorite layering accessories is scarves. And boy-oh-boy, I had no idea how many scarves I had collected over the years. I had stuck my scarf rack in the corner of my closet, and tried to ignore it for the last five years. Motivated to Spring-clean, I was inspired to examine the "collection".
I was immediately surprised at how HEAVY they were. I'm surprised my clothes rack held them for for that length of time! I had to count. 32 scarves!! I took them all off the rack, and went through each, one-by-one. Lots of good memories came to mind..
The green scarf I wore to the St. Patrick's Day street party in North Beach...
The orange scared I wore to the Giants World Series game...
The ivory scarf I wore at my wedding...
Such good memories!
I ended up donating half my scarves. It makes me happy knowing they can bring good memories to other people. Now my scarf rack is now under control. No more cluttered corners in my closet.
