She turned to the sunlight and shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:  "Winter is dead."

DIY Easter Basket


Some of you have seen these images in previous posts; however, since this is one of my favorite recycling/upcycling projects, I want to share it again.  As is obvious in the first picture, I deconstructed a box and rebuilt it with the inside facing out.  The pretty design on the interior of the container caught my attention and I just couldn't throw it away. 

 Anyway, next I used two pipe cleaners as the handle and then embellished the exterior.  Trust me, this is simple and super cute.  Surprise someone for Easter with a basket you made yourself and fill it with their favorite treats.

Selfie Central

Are you obsessed with taking selfies?  If so, a visit to Chicago's BEAN is in order.  And, if people-watching is one of your pastimes, this place is a must see.  Dress for the weather, bring your digital device to play around with all the great photo opportunities and observe the hundreds of passersby. Simply enjoy the experience.
