Freshen Up Friday

On this Friday, how about if we look at an accessory that can totally change an outfit? One way to freshen up an outfit and give it new pizazz, is by adding a scarf.  They are so popular now with many different styles. 
These lovely pics are from Tip Junkie – a favorite site of mine.

Once you get past all the cute styles, there are tons of fun ways to tie the scarf!  Look here…

One simple tie is to fold a long scarf in half lengthwise and place it around your neck.  Loop the loose end through the loop.  You can bring the loop up high around your neck or open it up to be more scooped.

Here’s a little series of pictures with a variation of the previous tie:

Fold scarf in half with loop on one end and loose end on the other.

Insert loose end through loop

Twist the looped end, keeping  your finger inside the loop

Insert loose end through loop

Fluff and adjust the knot to the position you want it

Now, go get a scarf and try one of these ties!

Do you have scarves?  How do you wear  them?

I have some exciting news for you today…

If you read my post on Wednesday you know that I’m leaving on Sunday to go to Israel.  However, that does not mean that my blog will be sitting here idle while I’m away.  My daughter, Whitney will be posting in my absence!  Okay, she’s my daughter, true, but the other truth is – she’s a great writer (and she wears a scarf oh, so well!)!  I think you’ll find her posts enlightening, funny, and helpful.  So keep checking in each day to see what creative things she’s come up with, and I will be back on here the last week of January! 

I love and appreciate each of you!

Be refreshed,

  1. So pretty! You and the scarf! 🙂 What a sweet thing that Whitney will be writing in your absence. I look foward to reading and being refreshed by my niece!


  2. Denise, you are so creative and a beautiful lady. Thanks for the tips on scarves. Will be praying for you and Dale on your trip to Israel. Can't wait to hear about the trip when you return.


  3. I too, love scarfs, and they do add so much to any outfit, even a mundane one. I verture to say, no one has scarfs, as old as EARLY 70s. I wore one of those just the other day, the colors were just perfect for what I was wearing. I had bought it with a dress in 1973. The dress is long gone, but the scarf remains. Lovely scarf demo. I'm looking forward to reading our Grand daughte's blog. Bon Voyage!


  4. You all are the best! Thanks so much for your love and encouragement. I know you will be a blessing to Whitney as she shares from her heart these next two weeks!

    My love to each of you,


  5. Hi Denise,
    I'll be praying for your travels to Israel. You are going to love it! Enjoy all the sights, sounds and tastes.
    “Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him!”
    Ps. 34:8
