Last weekend I was visiting a longtime girlfriend in Prince Edward County and was able to show her my scarves for the first time. As I shared ‘Out of the Blue’ with her and her mom, I enthusiastically pointed out where each of the images in the photo-collage pattern originate. “Why don’t you tell people that in your blog?” she asked me. But how would I ever be able to replicate this one-to-one experience? Click here to view the visual story of the inspiration for this scarf. I hope you like it.

Despite knowing it was a collage I had no idea (except for the canoes) about the stories behind the pictures!! That was a great” look see” at your travels.I was worried you weren’t going to “publish” this week,and I was really missing it.
Thanks Diana. Yes, I was a little late posting my blog this week, as I had some new technology to learn to make the online magazine. Glad you like it.
How about a written thumbs up?
I’ll take it! Thanks so much Carol.
Wonderful images – a scarf with so many stories! I think you should do this for all of your creations. xx
Thanks Suzannah. Yes, I’d like to create more of these. This format just fit for the photo-collage design, I’ll have to brainstorm new ways to tell the stories about my other scarves. A fun challenge! Stay tuned.
Brilliant idea to share your inspirations! It makes the entire scarf more personal and significant. Good job!
Thanks Wanda. Glad you enjoyed it.
Beautiful scarf Lila.
Thanks so much Branca.
Lila, I love how you’ve captured so many of your travel memories so creatively. You deserve much more than one thumbs up! xo
Thanks for the thumbs up Kim!
Fantastic! Very inspiring! How about ……umm A post card with those pictures included with the scarf to challenge the persn to find them in THEIR NEW SCARF! The story truly captures me!
Thanks Alanna. Great idea!
You get two thumbs up from me! I agree…you should let us know the “history” of all your scarves….it’s so fascinating.
Converting all that we experience, to art…and sharing it…is our purpose on this planet. Thanks for the reminder.
Beautifully said. Thanks Scott.
a thumbs up is obvious-keep on travelling..
there’s a scarf in them there hills.
Thanks Jane! I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m determined to enjoy every step of it. 🙂
There is a little rectangle that looks like sun sparkling on water . . . .is that Moraine Lake? I had no idea this beautiful scarf had came from so many amazing experiences. You are so talented Lila! Smooch.
Yes you’re right Sue, that image of the amazing sparkling water was taken at Moraine Lake.
This is beautiful. What a great way to add another layer of inspiration to something already inspiring.
This is really cool. I would never have recognized the pool at the Bellagio but it makes the scarf more interesting when you see the inspiration behind it. It would be nice to have the explanation accompany the scarf so that the person who purchases it can have the pleasure of knowing too.
Thanks Pat, will definitely consider that.
Love the scarf. Love the story. Please continue to share the inspiration behind your scarves.
Wow- the explanation really brings it to life. when you understand the images it’s like you’re wearing history and architecture on your shoulders. It’s makes your designs even more vibrant. Absolutely a good idea. Beautiful. (And I agree with Pat- the explanation increases the first -exposure value of the scarf. It has more meaning, and allows the wearer to use it as a conversation starter as well as a beautiful article of clothing!)
HA! Glad our middle of the night conversations are fruitful! Great visual explanation of your inspiration….well done my friend! xoxox
Thanks for the suggestion Elizabeth! Glad you approve.
