Friday Favorite--Arlene's Boutique

It's Friday!  It's also COLD COLD COLD here in my town.  Below zero wind chill factors.  YIKES!! I don't even like to go out in the cold, but when I do, I certainly bundle up.  It got me searching around on etsy for some cute winter scarves.  I found Arlene's Boutique and knew I just had to share!

Arlene's scarves are probably more about fashion than warmth, but they are wonderful!!  She has a whole range of styles and colors and yarns available.  I'm choosing to show some of her unique ruffled scarves here, but she has over TWO HUNDRED items in her etsy shop, so obviously, you will need to head over there and check out her selection. I can only feature 5 or 6.  How do I choose those....well, it's not easy because she has so many really pretty ones!

I don't knit or crochet or do anything handy with yarn.  My grandma tried to teach me to crochet many, many times, but it never stuck in my brain.  My friend Marian does beautiful knitting work, and sometime I will show you some of the fabulous stuff she has made.  Today I just want you to enjoy these lovely scarves and hopefully pay Arlene's Boutique a visit.

Have a great weekend!  It's supposed to 'warm up' here on Saturday....


  1. Beautiful, I love all of these, thanks for featuring Arlene's Boutique!

    It's Freezing Cold here to, and I don't want to go outside either! I am anxious for spring, although I don't want to wish time to go by... It goes fast enough!!

    1. Before Christmas I was wishing for some cold, snowy weather. I am over that now! I don't want to wish the time away either, but -15 below wind chills are just plain wrong!

  2. As you know, I am a BIG fan of scarves...both for fashion and warmth! Arlene's work is incredible and I want one of each!!

    It was chilly here early this week but warming up today and through the weekend. I'd rather it be nice on the weekend anyway so I can take advantage of all the great hiking opportunities around here!


    1. I thought you might like Arlene's scarves! They are really should check out her whole selection. I'm sure you would find something you like!

      We are supposed to be 40 tomorrow. It will feel downright balmy! Have fun hiking!

  3. Thank you so much, Lisa! I am so honored to be featured in your blog. I am going to post it on FB, etc.

    We are going to be at 57 today in Arizona. Still cool enough to wear a scarf of the lighter version.

    Thanks again and you have a lovely day.

    1. It is my pleasure to feature your lovely work here! Thank you for sharing the link. I'm so jealous of your temps!

  4. These are AMAZING! I can't believe how reasonably they are priced! I'm impressed!

    1. I knew you would be impressed given your aptitude for fiber arts. I think they are stunning!
