My blog is really an eclectic assortment of topics! That's just me, I just bounce around and depending upon the amount of motivation (or energy) I often switch gears.
The other day I was reading about this design blogger and her outfits. Scarves included and some neat ways to tie them! I've acquired 3 scarves now, and find more and more catching my eye!
When I was up north last month I got use out of them, yay fun! And it's starting to be in the 50's here now so I can bust them back out. So I tried one of the ways she showed, it worked AND I liked it very much! It was comfy and laid well. What do you think??
(oh! With the first scarf she tied and pinned with a flower pin, I was totally thinking of my girl Ellie's creations from Rose is a Rose Designs!)
I wore this out to breakfast with some gal pals yesterday. Afterwards, I went thrift store shopping. The last few months I've been immersed in design blogs, especially those about working with what you have and decorating on a budget. Since then I've started my own little projects and have loved the results. For my home and for myself. Being a SAHM isn't a real productive job... I mean of course I DO a lot all day long and my kids are growing like unruly weeds. However, nothing I do stays "done"... meals are baked, cooked, eaten and leave a huge mess, dishes get dirty again, so does laundry, as does the boys, not to mention the house. Anyway, long story short... it's been a nice creative and inexpensive outlet for me.
I went to a GoodWill and a local ministry thrift store. I totally did NOT luck out on any furniture finds (looking for a few things for upcoming projects) but I did score some other little things... all in all I spent $20 total. Take a gander, but be sure to put on your "see the potential" glasses for some of them. If there are some items you're wondering... what the heck? Just wait and see, just remember I'm slow! :) The frog picture for the boys bathroom got cleaned off and hung asap! As much as I want to keep scouring thrift stores, I already have a backlog of projects... so I should just finish the ones I start first (my Achilles heel I tell ya!).
