Clothespin scarf

Iron locks, chains and keys.  Nails hammered into silk; ropes and lassos and wooden clothespins on a scarf given to me years ago by a dear, close relative long since gone.  I'm guessing she bought it in France in the the 1950's or 60's--a whimsical era for scarves with themes that go beyond color and pattern. This one is a mix of familiar objects in an offbeat vignette of everyday life.
