 Amber and I made some peanut butter chocolate chip cupcakes with peanut butter frosting for her Harry Pottery dress up party!

 These are the finished cupcakes. Amber called them "Divination Cupcakes" because Professor Trelawney tells fortunes. She also included a fortune below each cupcake that is tucked into a secondary cupcake paper to be found when eating the cupcake.
 The REAL Professor Trelawney and below is Amber ready to go for her party! I made the head scarf and we found the rest of the things, including the clothes (at Value Village) and Merchandise Outlet helped with the glasses and ball. :) Such fun!

Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose a Dresser as a Planter

Recylce, reuse, repurpose! Those are the words for this project. Earl and I were at a thrift shop and found a very beat up dresser that really could not be used for clothes any longer for super cheap. We took it home and gave it some TLC until became this planter dresser!!!!!!! I love it and hope you do too.
We sanded, painted and decorated and then used the drawers as a place to add the planter boxes along with the plants. Earl actually screwed the drawers into place on the side so there is no chance of them dropping out or anything. What fun! I hope it lasts a couple of seasons. :) I think this was a great thing to do with dresser to save it from the land fill. HURRAY!
Have a great day everyone.
