Old to New Chair

I have a problem. I am happy with my furniture until the season is about to change. Then I feel the need to rearrange and buy new things. I was looking at my ratty old clue armchair, and thinking how I could love to buy a new blanket to drape over it, or a throw pillow to add to it. Then, a light bulb lit up in my head. Why not use a table runner to add some color to the chair? What do you think? 

I just draped it over the top and gathered lots of the fabric to tuck in the crease, and then folded it under the cushion. I'm sure it will get all messed up when somebody sits on it, but whatever. It adds some fun color! What is your no-spending-money house spiffer upper?

Next up? I would LOVE to find some inexpensive slip covers for my couches that work good!

Summer to Fall Accessory

I found a new accessory that makes me happy. It's called the Infinity Scarf. 
I found this one at Old Navy.

It is so soft and cozy; a great way to get the comfy I always crave when fall is approaching (think jeans and hoodies). It's too hot here for all that, so that's why I love this scarf! It can be worn loose for the summer, like this: 

And, it's under $15! Here's to getting cozy, Bloggies!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
