Day 14

I understand that it's technically 15 minutes into Sunday at this point, but in my book it's clearly still Saturday night. I did realize as we were heading to our first engagement of the evening, around 7, that I hadn't blogged, and did give it a go from David's fancy new phone. It didn't work, though.

And, truthfully, I don't have much to say anyway.

But here is a ridiculous DIY project: a padded hanger made from paper towels and old pantyhose!

A few weeks ago, when I was feeling very crafty between the string lamp and the silver bathtub feet, I made this little beauty.

I had a pair of patterned pantyhose that I loved, but which had holes that rendered them completely unwearable. I also needed a padded hanger for a new sweater.

I wrapped a plastic hanger with crumpled paper towel, slipped a leg of the hose over each end, and wrapped the waistband around to secure it, finally poking a hole for the top of the hanger to go through. It's laughably ugly, but it does seem to get the job done. Plus, reusing the nylons, rather than throwing them away, made me unduly happy.
