When I saw this post on Mitzi's Collectibles Blog I thought the books she covered in sheet music were adorable. She just made slip covers for them like my kids do with paper bags for their school books. Adorable.
Peat Pots. Who knew? I've been seeing them everywhere, so I picked a pack of peat pots up (say that 5 times fast!) for a buck and a half, and the two little boys and I busted out the paint on Saturday. Monkey pooped out after painting the blue one and went to work with the paper shredder to shred the "grass". Fez added a ribbon and paper handle to his green pot, and I went with ribbon, flowers, and buttons and added a pink tag for gift-giving. We used the medium sized pots, not the little ones. They're the perfect size for an egg or some Cadbury mini eggs, jelly beans, or the ever-important chocolate bunny.

|Since the boys went with jewel tones, I softened the red pot with a doily tied on with w ribbon bow.|
The amazingly talented Vicki Chrisman posted a picture of her peat pot Easter basket here, (Warning, she has music on her blog so turn of the speakers if the baby is asleep or you're reading this at work! Just scroll down to see it and some of her other lovelies.
Martha Stewart has an adorable Easter basket made from the small square peat pots.
