Inspiration Comes from many places

Introducing the Mobius Leather Rocker Bracelet Cuff
My new hobby of knitting has opened my eyes to many things. Inspired by the magical Mobius Strip by German mathematician, August Ferdinand Mobius; I have created my version with the use of leather.

One day I will actually knit a Mobius Wrap Shawl.

1st Finished Scarf - Knitting & Crochet

I started this scarf the first week of September from yarn I thrifted from Value Village.

The orange centre is knitted and I crocheted the outer trim. I was so happy when I finished it yesterday that I wore it the entire day.

Close up of the crochet trim I would love to make a shawl but I have to find a relatively easy pattern. I will take suggestions so feel free to share.

Second Chances

I believe in second chances, that is why I thrift shop wherever I can. I love visiting my favourite Value Village or Garage sale-ing. This little breadbox is now my...

Electronics hutch. It houses such things as my drill battery charger, blackberry chargers, digital camera charger, electric scissor charger - you get the picture!

Next you will see a mailbox that I found at the latest yard sale I went to. I painted it white (well it is actually just the primer). I can put my magnets on it and my little collectibles.

Inside is the perfect spot to place icky things like bills to be paid.

I can't forget to look at the bills because it sits right above my computer where I can be found waaay too often.

Have you given anything second chances lately?

Thrifty Finds

I found this milk glass vessel and wool and mohair yarn at Value Village 2 days ago. This will be my 3rd piece of milk glass and it has fruit on it. What a collection!
I decided to make a scarf out of the yarn. It is a gorgeous shade of orange.
