Nooo.. This isn’t about crocheting things to decorate your home.
I saw it in a bookstore, but didn’t actually read it.
I don’t know anything about design principles or anything.
My take-away message from the title is…well..
Use what you have to decorate your home!
Which brings me to my crochet.
I made this back in January or February – can’t remember when. I was on a blue kick for some reason and so held off on showing it here, because of all the other blue scarves I was writing about.
I kept wearing it, but forgot to show it to you!
I added the flower pin this summer. It lets me pin it closer to my neck.
Really handy with my short hair. It’s so cold where I work, I usually wear something warm even through summer.
I made simple one round sc button earrings.
Hot-glued them to the back of these..
And called it a day!
Soooo. What on earth does this have to do with decorating?
Like the title says. ( not necessarily what the book is about )
Use what you have…when decorating!
So I did.
Summertime Christmas decorating..
Now Fall Christmas decorating….
I just plop my cowl in a container and there ya go!
The colors I need, without spending money!
Cause you know how much I redecorate..
I could say I was thrifty.
I am both, but since I love the look – who cares???
Here is the original picture I took of my cowl.
You can barely tell, but there is a blue ring sitting on top. :)…to the left.
So anyhoo. This is my kind of decorating since I can’t crochet afghans or blankets or the like. I buy those at the Thrift Store!
Please tell me i’m not the only one who does this?
