Why yes that IS a table runner I am wearing!

I have never bought a table runner before.  Actually I have never even used a table runner until recently when I made one out of burlap.  But the other day I was killing some time and popped in Pier One.  I saw this table runner on sale and fell in love.  I almost didn’t buy it but when I realized it would make a beautiful scarf as well as a pretty table decoration, I couldn’t get to the register fast enough!

I found a bag full of these Christmas balls at Salvation Army for $5.00.  Any ideas for what I can use them for after Christmas.  I love the colors and they are very heavy and solid.  Thanks for the help!

    I am a major scarf addict! I love the table runner as a scarf! It looks great on your table too.
