Another man's trash.................

Everyone knows I like a bargain. I like old too, things that is! Vintage and antique is so much better than today's product. Anyway I found this lovely stool at a neighbors trash stash! The legs I'm sure are chrome. I like the red because my kitchen happens to be red. It's a 'Cosco Stylaire' kitchen step stool. It's in great shape as it is although I do want to strip it, repaint and clean up the chrome. Here's one on eBay that mine should look like Retro step stool. Pricey too!!! I like FREE!

Gift for Mom

This was a gift for my mom's birthday. The pattern is called 'Sunray' and the yarn is Crystal Palace, Fiord, used a 10 1/2 needle. It's an unspun wool. Loved how it turned out. At first I didn't like the roll but I think that makes the scarf different. Neat pattern stitch too. I found one of those large safety pins for it but I really wanted one much larger. I remember my older sister used one on a skirt. Bring back any memories?
