It dawned on me recently … well actually it had already dawned on me but on this occasion it hit me with a thud … that I have many things that I LOVE that I do not use or wear. I’m always waiting for the right occasion or worried that if I use that special thing it could get broken. This has been me since way back when. I’m now 57 and these things sit tucked away ‘safe’ but not being used and appreciated. Life is too short for this!
So, I’ve started with my scarves. I have a lot of scarves. Some have been gifts. Some I’ve bought myself. The thing is that here in Brisbane the window of time to wear them is short because it is mostly too hot. Add to that the fact I don’t really go out and about much now that I’m not living the corporate life, and these scarves are not getting worn. So, while we are experiencing cooler weather I have decided to wear one of my scarves every day, even if I’m not going out anywhere, and so far I’m loving it!
Here is a snap for each day that I’ve posted to my Instagram Stories.
Day 3 – Today! I’m enjoying this pretty scarf that was given to me just recently as a gift for my birthday from a friend (thank you Kylie). I’m mostly just home today apart from an appointment I’ll be going to later in the day. Finally remembered to take my glasses off for this shot! Not the case for Day’s 1 & 2.
Day 2 – a Sunday visit to Mum for the day. I was wearing purple/fushia coloured jeans and a black knit top and this scarf worked in well. This was hastily grabbed selfie taken over at Mum’s in case I forgot later.
Day 1 – I went out and got my nails done and picked up a few things from the shops. I love this scarf so much. I bought it from Jenni of Neon Cherry quite a while ago. My hair was up because it needed washing and I wanted to hold out washing it till the next day!
The next project will be to start using my April Rose Mikasa dinner set that has been safely packed away (some of it on display) ever since the child of a dinner party guest smashed a plate back in um … circa 1988!! Ok I think I have brought it out once or twice since then but definitely no more than that. It’s quite ridiculous!
What do you have that you love but don’t use or wear often enough? Would you like to see more of my Project Scarf-A-Day? I have plenty more scarves to wear yet!
Ciao for now,
