Grab your coat and get your hat...leave your worry on the doorstep... just direct your feet... to the sunny side of the street. Can you hear a pitter-pat? And the happy tune is your step... life can be so sweet... on the sunny side of the street!If you are not familiar with this song, you can take a moment and hear Louis Armstrong perform On the Sunny Side of the Street. I'm not normally a jazz person, but this song brings back many happy memories from my childhood.
This song always makes me think of the glitz and glamour of that era. My goal in making this scarf was to create a way to add a bit of glamour and sunshine to an outfit with out adding an overwhelming amount of shimmer. I also wanted to create a scarf that would look delicate, and be warm and cozy for the winter weather.
