Last week was a doozy around here. Husband had that respiratory crud that was going around. Son had some wacky stomach virus. I tried to not get either. Knock on wood, I think I escaped unscathed.
But this girl is exhausted, so enjoy a replay of a post from 2011 to get you in a happy, springy, crafty mood.
FOR PEAT’S SAKE – SPRING 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.
