This week I have been bitten by a huge case of spring cleaning fever! Nothing in the house is safe. I’ve taken two car loads to Goodwill and will probably have another car load by the end of the weekend. It feels strange to drop things off there and not run in the front door to check out the new arrivals (I’d probably be tempted to buy back my own stuff anyhow).
So, while I’m vacuuming the cat and before Easter sneaks up on us, I wanted to replay one of my favorite spring craft posts from last year:
For Peat’s Sake – April 2011
While perusing one of my favorite vintage/crafty blogs, Musings From Kim K., I ran across a post that showed how to turn peat pots into little Easter decorative baskets.
All of a sudden a light bulb came on in my head. I had seen things like this at gift shops and antique stores, but had no idea they were made with good old peat pots.
I did a couple versions of the little baskets just to show the versatility of what you can do with them.

I’m sure I could have been a little more creative on these, using buttons, flowers or lace to bling them up a bit, but since I’m not a normally super crafty gal, I thought it better to stop when I was ahead on these.
Do you ever do that? Make a craft that is OK, then you start messing with it and before you know it it is in the trashcan. Then I won’t show you the Mod Podged sheet music one that is currently buried beneath coffee grounds and banana peels.
