Showing them the ropes.

New all cotton rope scarves have a nautical look, and a soft suede like feel. Great with a white T-shirt and jeans.

Embracing the blizzard blues.

For some twisted reason, and impending storm excites me. Stoke the fire, put on a pot of stew, open a bottle of red wine, light some candles and I'm ready! I had hours to plan, and time to spare, so a quick vat of indigo was started. Silks and fine linens were twisted and tied, dipped and dyed. Hung to dry, or rather freeze dry, while the the storm named Nemo made it's presence known. Flakes were falling while the indigo set, and then the frozen sheets of scarves and sarongs were brought in to thaw and be laundered. Another great day to dye.

Hot cookin' before the big storm.

There will be no "white out" here at Vagabond's Daughter studio. These hot colors came out of a steaming caldron, ready to be transformed into sarongs, beach totes and spring scarves. Linen and silk, logwood and quebracho red.

Harbor Island style.

Sky blues, conch shell pinks, sunset purples and driftwood greys. All perfect for the Bahamian beach attire necessary for a week in Harbor Island. The girls were stylin'! And Tim was, too.
