Paint Chips And Peat Pots

Went over to Lowe's yesterday to get some peat pots for my muslin bunny/peat pots craft that I mentioned in my previous post. As I was heading out I noticed all these beautiful spring colored paint chips and I thought they were just too pretty to not make something out of them.....

So I grabbed some and headed home and this is what I came up with! Tiny garland for my muslin bunnies to hold! I really love the way they came out! Love all those pastel colors!  My Easter basket peat pots are almost done!! I will share soon, probably on Monday!  I'm brand new at all this scrapbook paper type crafting but seeing all the adorable things that people make on blogs and on Pinterest is making me really want to learn... I'm getting totally addicted to paper punches for sure. lol  I love all these beautiful paint chips, I want to come up with something else to make from these.... hmmmm...

Stopped at the thrift store on the way home. I like to look for vintage dollies and lacy trims and fabrics but they didn't have any this time.... But they did have these two wooden items. I'm going to clean them up, paint them white and then distress them a bit. The pedestal bowl is going to hold my decoupaged eggs (that are still in the bag waiting to be created!! lol)  I've been wanting a bowl like this to display them in so I am so happy to finally have one!!

Now when I saw this wooden candle holder I envisioned it painted shabby white , distressed and holding 3 little bird houses or two houses and one nest.... Yes a bird house village is what I see when I look at this candle holder!! :)  I will share when these little projects are finished! Gotta get back to crafting!! ;)

Have a blessed day,
