My wonderful friend Emily made them.  This is what she said about them, “These little cuties are hot/cold rice packs. I didn't want to do just a square shape so the creative side of me came busting out. I seriously think that if I had a boo boo one of these would make me smile. PLUS my kids love using them as bean bags!”

I absolutely love the little owl.  One more item I’m adding to my to do craft list!!!!

Thank you Emily for letting me share!

Chair recycled into a flower pot holder

I have been seeing two dining table chairs on the side of the road, that I frequently travel, for the last 6 months.  I’m not much of a trash picker, but I just couldn’t resist picking them up in hope of being able to use them for something.  The one chair had no legs and the other chair had one leg broken and one connecting bar broken.  As I was trying to straighten up the garage, I decided it was time to give the chairs a purpose or throw them away.
I came up with this idea (just pretend there are cute flowers in the pots and that the one pot is not broken!!!)
I had to put the legs back together on the one chair, it’s not perfect and wobbles but hey it’s for a plant so a little wobble won’t matter.  Then I measured the top inner circumference of the pot and cut that size of circle out of the chair with legs.   I still want to to a treatment to the chairs to prevent water damage. 
I plan to plant some flowers or vines that will grow along the backs of the chairs!
Now I just have to wait for the weather to decide to be warm!!!
