i purchased these wonderful/beautiful silk.....things?  in italy about 2 years ago and i absolutely LOVE them.  however, i can not think of anything to do with them.  i was thinking about framing them and hanging them but i have no where to hang them, so any thought would be appreciated.
this one is 40" by 37"

this one is 34"x34" and the pattern is a lot of tulips

this is a close up of the detail

thanks for all your help!!!

You can make an elegant stole-like wrap from a big scarf by tying two adjoining corners together, then the other two corners together.  Slide your hands/arms through the gap between the knot and scarf, and it stays on better than a shawl.

Google "sarong tying" for more ideas to non-destructibly use large scarves as skirts and dresses.  Here's one link with lots of ideas: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.silverplatinumandgold.com/images/sarongtying.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.silverplatinumandgold.com/saronginstr.html&h=550&w=546&sz=108&hl=en&start=1&sig2=ypNM6kEyQbr4kt4ijMiinA&um=1&usg=__LmLZ0ympCVDKg2yfU8wTHvjc3k0=&tbnid=0N5T6gmhyQ1CmM:&tbnh=133&tbnw=132&ei=AzW7SPymHJzYsAOb--DcAw&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dsarong%2Btying%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox%26rlz%3D1I7GGLF%26sa%3DN

You could use them as the focal point of a square quilt?

Decorating Cents on HGTV did a trash to treasures with scarves today.  They made a curtain by sewing together a bunch  (ho hum), but I really like the tabletop they made by framing a scarf behind glass and attaching it to a table base.  pretty and practical!

omg i LOVE the idea of the tabletop.  only problem...i dont have one....so maybe i'll continue to save them until the right opportunity comes along when i can have a table~!!!
