Home Sweet Home #56

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  Today I am sharing some altered peat pots for spring.   I wanted to create these as an alternative to the traditional Easter basket.

The peat pots used here were small, but you get the idea.  There is a lot of ways you could use these.  I painted these white with just a basic craft paint.

The vintage tag I used I got here.  The 'Nest' graphic I found here.  Create some of your own and show them off here at Home Sweet Home!

Now I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.
Sally at Salmagundi  showed off some of her pretty brown transferware. 

Judy at French Laundry  organized her lace on graphics cards from The Graphic's Fairy.  How smart is that!

 Cathy at My 1929 Charmer showed a beautiful kitchen makeover.

 Terry at Forever Decorating  showed off her new stairwell wainscoting.

 Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!   It is wonderful to have you here!
Sherry
