I'm a freelance writer living in the beautiful river town of Mannum in SA, dreaming of the day I can retire from the 9-5 to write full time.

Scarves come in an endless variety of sizes, shapes, colours and fabrics and can be used for a multitude of purposes. Aside from the obvious ways like tying up our hair or wearing them as belts, we can stretch our imagination a little further and put scarves to good use around our homes.

- Long scarves can be used as an elegant table-runner (pictured above.)

- Use a scarf as a curtain tie-back in a matching or contrasting colour.

- Dress up a tired cushion with a pretty scarf. Just wrap around and tie in front. This is a great idea for a colour-themed party or celebration.

- Use the same idea to dress up your chairs for a special occasion. Wrap around and tie at the back.

- Scarves not only make a lovely and unique gift-wrap but serve as a bonus gift!

- Who says babies have to be seen in pink or blue (or neutral lemon?) Use a soft, colourful scarf to swaddle your baby.

- Re-purpose a pretty scarf into a one-of-a-kind curtain for a small window.

- As a protective cover for the back or arms of your couch. The one illustrated is a pocket scarf so it also has a handy place to keep the remote.

These are just a few of many ideas. The next time you're cleaning out your scarf drawer, take a moment to look at your scarves in a different way. Can you use this lovely piece of fabric for a different purpose?

And don't forget, there is always the alternative of paying a visit to your local thrift store. They have tons of scarves to choose from at ridiculously cheap prices.
