There are adorable sock wreaths hanging on doors throughout the blogosphere, I remember the first time I saw them last summer over at Blue Cricket Designs, so cute! I had totally forgotten about wanting to make one until I ran across Lori's Valentine's Day version over at My Life Among the Three Stooges. LOVE! I had to make one, or three, which is how many I have created so far.
One day prior to Christmas, I was perusing Home Goods and saw a huge selection of GAWD AWFUL HIDEOUS candle holders. I had to have some! They sat in my office for weeks while I figured out what to do with them. These bad boys were a funky flashback to my 1970's childhood, had they been a color that even partially fit in with my decor, I might have kept them as is. I love the shape, and they are sturdy, could totally be used as weaponry if necessary.
More than five years ago, someone gave me a pair of sheepskin UGG Boots for my birthday. I live in a warm climate, so I don't abuse them too badly with snow or water, but they were starting to show some wear and I made a specific trip to Macy's with every intention of purchasing a new pair. Every pair of new UGGs that I admired was over $200.00. I was okay with the price until I saw a display of the UGG Sheepskin Care Kits. I read the back of the box, seemed easy enough, especially for a DIY fiend like myself. $20.00 was not a big deal when I had nearly forked out $250.00 for the pair I liked, which in all reality, was almost exactly what I had back at home. Care Kit in hand, I headed home to try out my unexpected do-it-yourself project.
