If you won a million dollars what would you do with it?

I would buy an El Camino, pay off my debt and go consult with my new financial planner to set up myself, and my immediate family.

Upcycled Vintage Blankets

I love vintage blankets. I absolutely adore these crocheted afghans, their granny square construction, the dated colors of yarns. Often there’s signs of felting or fuzziness.

Sometimes the blankets are a little too loved, or conversely, unloved, and are damaged by time. I carefully salvage these blankets and make scarves!

This time I found a blanket in a zig-zag pattern, which created a lot of zig zag scarves. A great look for colder times!

Upcycled Puzzle Pieces

I remember playing with this puzzle as a child. When I found its dog-eared cardboard box, I wondered if all the pieces were still there and got one last round of joy putting it together.
But alas, some of the pieces were probably eaten by a vacuum cleaner over the years, et cetera, and I wanted to give these pieces new life rather than discard them.
So I took the pastel-laden imagery and created hair barrettes with them.

Missing pieces barrettes.
