I may be a scarf addict.

Scarf Rack 6

I own a good many scarves.  Because I’m allergic to metal I tend to avoid necklaces.  I wear scarves instead, sometimes with a fetching vintage brooch pinned in a strategic way.   When we first moved to St. John’s the scarf trend hadn’t yet made it to the Rock and people tended to look askance at my “old lady” attire.  Since then, however, they’ve picked up here in a big way and I’m very glad.

I love figuring out new ways to tie and drape the things, in their different lengths and textures.

My mother is also big into scarves.  And when she goes through a scarf purge, I’m the first beneficiary.  Then Cait and I fight over them.

So as I said, I have a good many.  So many sometimes I forget which ones I own.  I wanted a way to keep them organized and stored in such a way that I could see each and every one of them.

We had this towel rack on our door that was rubbish for towels because the position of the rods put the towels too close together and they didn’t dry.  When we replaced it we ended up with a spare rack.

But it’s perfect for all my scarves, which now hang on the outside of the closet door, so I can see them and be reminded to wear them all.  Our belts are at the top.

How do you organize your scarves?

A corgi. A small boy. A sense of adventure. Chaos ensues.

  1. Love how you organize your scarves! I have mine draped over the headboard of my bed, but they fall on me in my sleep and I wake up in a panic! I might have to try your method– rack hanging off the door! Genius! (:


    1. Yeah I would definitely freak out if something fell on me in the middle of the night. Bad enough sharing the bed with a huge husband and huge corgi. The scarves would tip me over the edge.


      1. Ohh yeah, that happens sometimes. But I wear the same 5 or so scarves most frequently, so it doesn’t bother me. And I organize them by color, so if I need a pink scarf, I just kind fluff the pink section until I see what I like.
