Yarn Easter Eggs

7.1I just couldn’t just stop with one new type of egg this year so wanted to find one more.  I saw someone wrap plastic eggs with pipe cleaners on Pinterest and they were just beautiful.  I didn’t have pipe cleaners in the pretty Easter colors but what I did have was an overabundance of yarn.  Continue reading

I was shopping at Target in their $1 section and saw all the bonnets.  They are so cute but my girls will not wear them.  I tipped it up and thought what a great basket.  Continue reading
