One of my clients inherited quite a few vintage silk scarves from her grandmother. Lots of Liberty of London and Vera.
We’re putting the collection to good use. One will be framed and several others made into pillows. One of my favorite scarves is a sweet blue Liberty of London floral that will go on a chair in the nursery. It looks just like this one, available here:

Framing vintage scarves is another great idea.

If you’re not lucky enough to inherit dozens of vintage scarves, check out eBay for an incredible and very inexpensive selection. Here are some of my favorites up for auction right now:
