Cute, Quick Scarf Idea

 Here's a cute way to make a vest out of a scarf.  

  Take your oblong scarf  and fold it in half like this.

 Take the top left and top right corners and tie them together.

       Like this.                             

Then you will have this. Those are the arm holes.

I used a longer scarf here. I think you could even use this for a swim suit coverup.

Some of you girls probably already knew this trick, but I just discovered it today at "Cracker Barrel"
That is where the blue scarf and white top came from. Cracker Barrel has cute clothes!

Somebody's been playing with Grandmother's camera!

This picture made me LOL when I found it while downloading them to my computer. I just wanted to share it. My six year old g'daughter, Jamie.

Adding Color to the Patio

Hi! My patio was in bad need of some sprucing up for Spring, so when I saw these cushions at Walmart, I grabbed them.

I've had this good ole swing for over 30 years, and I love it too much to get a new one. I could never find the right size cushions for it, so this year, I discovered that I could get two chair cushions and use them.  They are also reversible.

The swing needs painting badly. I got this idea to add greenery to the top, from a local flower shop.

I also got the umbrella to match. My red one was so faded, I couldn't stand it. Hope this one doesn't fade. Anybody know of how to keep it from fading?

I also added some more touches of color around.

So thanks for stopping by to see me today. This is the rear of the house. To the right is the sunroom I added when I moved here.

Here's what it used to look like before I added the patio.
Ah! Much Better!!!
I'm joining Susan for "Met Monday" Thanks, Susan.
