Girl With Green Scarf

My husband was a good sport when I dragged him to Confessions of a Shopaholic flick. We both enjoyed it, and I was actually inspired by the plot and immediately came home and purchased the domain name “Girl With the Green Scarf.” ┬áIf you’ve seen the movie, you’ll know right away what that might mean. I don’t want to ruin the movie for you if you haven’t seen it, so I’ll just explain what my “Girl with the green scarf ” is all about.

I’m one of those people who collects and has trouble getting rid of anything. Each piece of clothing, teacup, jewelry, painting, has a memory or a person or event attached to it. Or the fabric is so beautiful, even though it’s two sizes too small for me. Or I envision a delightful pillow, tea cozy, apron, quilt or something new made out of the fabric. In my eyes, everything is a valuable resource to be used for something else besides its original purpose. My old treasures could be someone else’s new treasures!

I call this my “creative economy.” During this time of economic woes, why not share some of my resources with others who have been looking for exactly that item that I have no use for any more.

So check this page periodically as I may be sharing some treasures and where you can find them from my collections. I’ll also be sharing ideas of what you can do with your own resources.
