Pashminas are lightweight, dressy, extra wide and long and come in an assortment of colors, but don't limit them to your wardrobe - they make great home accessories.

Drape a pashmina over a chair or sofa. It will give it a nice burst of color and can be used as a nice, lightwieght wrap too.

A small window can be dressed up with a pretty pashmina draped over a curtain rod.

Want a more finished look? Tie the pashmina like you would a scarf so it looks similar to an oversized tassel.

Use the same tassel thought to dress up the back of a ladder back chair.

Fold the scarf in half and thread the loop through the top rung, then thread the ends through the loop and adust it. Doesn't that look great?

If you have curtains of a similar fabric, use a pashmina as a great oversized tie back.

These also give you a great way to dress up a table top. They can be draped or pooled around the table top accessories. To add color, what a great way to coordinate with some seasonal accessories.

So, the next time you see pashmina's pick up a few and use them for some great home accessories! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
