I don’t have a huge collections of ties, nor have I been into wearing them or sewing with them (I guess I could get a lot more creative in that way). However, I always keep an eye open for interesting ones and don’t resist when I see them.
These two are from the ’50’s or very early ’60’s. I love the medallion motifs and interesting geometrical shapes that were common then. Conservative and elegant but snazzy, too. Wow, that’s a word from that time that I don’t tend to use, but it fits.
Men always seem to prefer blue, but I like the red . . . . . . .

This little beauty was hiding, but not from me. Needs a little TLC, but I can do. I’ll be showing it in coming weeks as I go through my collection of dresses. Moral of the story? – It’s out there!!!
