Getting excited about wool scarves in August

You know you're a bit nutty when you get excited about a wool scarf in August. Last week, we hit record temperatures for the West Coast. It was brutally hot - over 30 degrees, which is unheard of in these parts. So there I was in the Salvation Army yesterday and I picked up this gorgeous wool scarf for $2. I was pumped! I started cutting it up last night. I made a quick baby bootie. The booties will be nice with the grey on the outside and red on the inside. I might add a buckle or something along the top but I figure these will be comfy baby slippers.

Recent Thrift Store Finds...

I found an option for my $2.50 stand. This tray fits perfectly on the stand. It was $1 at the Thrift Shop on North Road in Gibsons. It needs something... I ended up spray painting the tray black this afternoon. Tomorrow I'll tweek the paint then figure out my next step. I'm getting used to these trial by error situations. This afternoon, I painted over my white tray - the paint job wasn't as nice as I wanted so I'm back to basics for now.

Tomorrow I should have a few updates. Hopefully the black tray works out well. I think I'll leave the stand as is and not paint it. We'll see how it all goes...
