  2. Thanks for playing along with Frosted Designs Challenge. I love the spring feeling colors. Plus what an awesome way to reuse something for scrappy storage. Love it! I will have to buy me some GRITS. TFPA

  4. Oh I love this!!! So super cute!!! I didn't know that grits came in a container like oatmeal. I thought they either came in a bag or a box with little packets!! We don't have them in this kind of container here! But then, the only way I can eat them is if they are floating in butter and sugar!! Not all Southern grown girls like grits ya know!! :)

  8. OOoooh. This is a GREAT idea! I have been planning on using an old can for my kitchen utensils...but it would be ugly. And I like non-ugly things. I can't make something this cute, but I could sure cover it in patterned paper and contact paper! Thanks for such a great idea!!!
