One Dollar Wednesday... use what you have

I was most fortunate to come upon these shoes on a clearance rack last fall. They were DEEPLY discounted...I paid a whopping $1.50 for them.

Well, because we were headed into Fall and Winter, I tucked them away and promptly forgot about them.

We have been having BEAUTIFUL weather here in the desert, and I went digging through my shoe collection just yesterday, trying to find a FUN pair to wear. Imagine my surprise when I happened upon my "yellow peep toes". I was so excited to wear them, but didn't really know how to pull it off. Then I remembered that I had a couple yellow fabric roses, and I went to work.

I pulled out my collection of scrap fabric, chose a gray fabric and white with black polka dots fabric, and quickly "rolled" a couple more roses for myself.

I cut a backing from my gray fabric, and glued my flowers onto the backing...

Let me show you a little secret...

I can't find my brooch pins, but safety pins worked fine!

What do you think? I got lots of compliments when I wore this cute cardigan with my FUN yellow shoes.
