$1 Scarf day....and more!

Hello! So yesterday was $1 scarf day at Old Navy! I was going to post about it before hand so you all could go get your scarves but I forgot about it completely! It was the same morning at 90% off clearance at Target, and I was so excited about all of my finds that I forgot to go to Old Navy when they opened and get my scarves! I realized at about 1pm that I had forgotten and was whining to the hubby about my lost deal, when he persuaded me to go and check it out, "Hey, nobody wears a scarf but old ladies! There still might be some left" he said. I gasped! Old Ladies!?? What??? I wear a scarf every day in the winter. I know tons of ladies, old and young, that wear scarves during the winter. How dare he?
But I put my bewilderment aside for a second and thought that maybe he might be right (not about the old ladies) but about some scarves still being there! So I rushed to my store and low and behold they had every color still there! Not a lot of every color, but still every color! I was shocked and I did a little happy dance right there in the aisle and walked away with these colors:


I got gray, because I wore my gray one out last year and thought a new one would be nice. Will I throw away the old one then? Probably not! I got a green one because its my fav color, and the blue one because the color was soooo pretty, and two dark brown ones because I wanted one and so did my mom!

And lastly is this little gnome I made for a swap I am doing. I was a little unimpressed by him, so I think I will try to make another one for my partner and keep this one on my tree, I think my partner's will look really close to this but made with more careful stitching.

Happy shopping
&
Happy Crafting!

  3. Old Navy had a commercial for the scarves and outerwear was half off as well, so don't feel bad :-)

    I think the ornament is cute!

  4. Love the red scarf and the gnome! I'm in that swap, too, and wouldn't be disappointed to get that one for my tree. Speaking of tress, do you already have your Christmas tree up?

  5. You find the best deals, I wish I lived next door to you and could be standing at the car when you got ready to go shopping:) We would be great shopping partners! Love the scarves and tell hubby I wear them too so they are still hip:) The little gnome is precious and couldn't be any cuter! Have a happy week! Your Georgia friend!

  15. Ok, I've been lurking for quite sometime. You know reading your blog, but not commenting. Well today is the day that I come out and comment. I SO wish I had known about the $1 scarf sale at Old Navy, I totally would have gone, and I am not an old lady either.

  16. $1 Scarves!!! How did you control yourself and only buy a few! I probably would have bought about 20 as future gifts!!

  19. I think the gnome looks very good! And when there's some mistakes it gives it character I think.

  23. count me in on old lady style....I wear scarves every chance I get!
    As for the gnome...I think he is PERFECT!

  24. I missed the Old Navy deal, but it’s okay because I don’t wear fleece scarves too often. They would have been good for ice skating though. I like the blue and green scarves a lot. I think it’s funny that your hubby said that only old ladies wear scarves.

    The gnome ornament looks cute!

  26. Cay-ute Santa ornament. Maybe he needs a little white pom-pom to top his hat. You did a great job!

  27. $1 scarves, what a bargin! I love the bright blue and green the best :)
    And the little santa is so cute, the beauty of hand made things is imperfections, im sure your swap partner would love it!
