Peat pot baby ~

Well, this is my first attempt at altered peat pots!!
As much as I love babies...and of course, nests ~
it's only natural that I combine them!
I have a lot of old baby photos so I think I'll just keep on
making these, each one will be a little different...

These are the larger peat pots...about 3" or so across the top...
Would they be something good to take to the Barn House show???

A couple of giveaways for you!!!

And Linda of Robin's Egg Blues is having a giveaway HERE ~

I love being a part of this wonderful blogging community.
The precious friends, sweet encouragement and inspiration
are all such blessings ~

Thank you for being a blessing to me,
hugs and love,

This turned out so good, Dawn! Love it! I knew you'd come up with something good. These would probably be light enough and small enough to travel to the show.

Sandy said...


I think the altered pots are perfect for taking to the show, especially since they are light weight and you will be shipping them. That rosy cheeked baby is just precious as is your creation!

Oh yes! Those little nests would be great to take anywhere! I can see them decorating birthday tables from here to there. Wonder if my son would like one for his on Saturday. Okay, one really must learn when the answer would be "no." But I might make one of him just for me to enjoy. :D

Leanne said...

Iz this a joke? Should you bring them to the Barn House show?!? Like duh, even a cat knows that these cuties are a MUST BRING! I didn't even have to tax myself coming up with that answer ;)
