Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Valentine Peat Pots

I've been wanting to make these little peat pot containers
for quite some time. 
 
 
I had a few unembellished ones hanging out in the shed so I
braved the snow and brought them inside and gave them
a coat of off white paint.
 
 
I used some ruffled crepe paper, book page hearts, the top of a sparkly heart from the
dollar store, ribbon, a pipe cleaner, and paper shred to make my version.
 
Here are a few from my Pinterest Board.
 
One for spring...

 
A fun gift for a friend...

 
Adorable Easter...

 
 
Halloween...

 
Birthday...

 
Christmas...

 
Patriotic...
 
The ideas are endless.

 
All the links to these pictures are on my Pinterest Board.
