Hello and good morning! It's not often that I share anything deemed crafting on my blog, but I was inspired this weekend by Karla's use of peat pots in the recent issue of Somerset Life. I have been wanting to add some Spring freshness to the house lately, so I thought this little project might be a good start!
I bought these little peat pots last summer at the French Flea Market I went to in Tipton, Indiana...all because they had "France" stamped on the bottom of each one...I know, silly, but what can I say, that's what sold them to me :))
I wanted to be able to hang little bunches of flowers from my chandelier in the dining room and these peat pots worked perfectly for the job. All I had to do was punch a hole in the sides and string a little ribbon through...then I embellished each of the pots with simple touches to pretty them up a bit...
Since the peat pots couldn't hold anything heavy, I chose to fill them with dried lavender I had left over from all of those fresh lavender bundles I bought at Trader Joe's over the Summer and baby's breath, which I knew would dry nicely right in the pot.
The hardwood floor installation in our family room is moving along nicely...my husband finished almost 3/4 of the room! I will NOT miss the noise of this project nor the mess it has created in the rest of the house, but I am having a ton of fun trying to plan the "new look" for that room!!
What January "get through the Winter" projects are all of you up to???
Happy new week!
