Cozy DIY

Here are my collection of cozy socks...
I do lurrrve to slip a pair on during cold winter nights at home.
Excuse me...has this ever happened to you?
When I do my laundry, the other pair of socks sometimes would go missing,
~poofed* disappeared, just vanished! 
I suspect my laundry machine has swallowed them!
(could it be that my dogs ate them?!? errr...the mystery lives on!)
There're certainly lonely-single socks just sitting in my laundry room, 
their mates have gone forever...

Well Helo there...this is quite a witty DIY project.
Sweet Paul has recycled his old knit sweater; 
snip the sleeve + a simple glass vessel + fresh flowers & ~Voilà!
oooh...very cozy winter vase! I can do this with my socks now!

~XOXO*

What a great idea!!!!!!!! I have so many mates gone missing, they are probably with yours somewhere,lol! No, I could make a full size blanket with the singles left behind!

Adorable!!

You know, just in case you have a favorite pair of socks... my friend safety pins her pairs of socks together in the laundry and hasn't lost a single sock in 6 years.

Just sayin'. ;)

Doesn't happen if you use one of those little zip-up laundry bags LNM.

That makes me sound very organized - which I'm not - really I'm not!!!

Ah, great idea!

I lose my socks all the time!! I'll never understand it.

Oh, and that cozy winter vase is brilliant!

McVal said...

Cute idea!!! But the unfortunate thing is that for each single sock I've got, it's too yucky, faded or stained to look that nice. I might have to dip into the new partnered sock bin...
Our dogs tend to munch on any socks they find in the laundry or otherwise and rip holes out of the toes, etc.

Susan said...

What a curiously clever idea... d'you think I could use an old sock too? x

Susan said...

oooh I see they ARE socks. Curious how one always goes missing in the wash..
