creative way to use crochet.

I was bored with my planter and wanted a change, but after months of browsing and not finding anything that I loved, it finally occurred to me to shop the house. I would have never imagined using one of my braided baskets for a plant cozy, but as soon as I spotted it I knew that it was change I was looking for. Plus, the price was right.
