Yesterday, I did some work around the house and yard.  I have an ongoing list of little things to do—some of which only take about 10 minutes… THINGS LIKE:  washing switch plates and doorknobs, or emptying a drawer, or dusting a lamp, so I spend about half-hour doing three main rooms this week, next week I’ll do the same list in the other half of the house! (with a few modifications)  I’ll include a link at the bottom where you can get your own list and print it off!
During the afternoon, while Honey stepped out to fish; and then later in the evening, I had time to make a scrappy little craft.

I made it for my grand daughter—to put in her room. Now I’m on the look out for other small oval mirrors because I have a whole stack of French Fry baskets from the dollar store, I’m no longer using.
It’s cute.  It’s easy. It didn’t take hardly any time at all.

Cute idea for the basket. I have a few around here, and had planned to make crocheted "fake" food for them for my nephew.
