Everyone is a fan of Poppy from Trolls and I've found quite a few patterns to make troll hats. I'll post a picture of my finished hat when I've completed it.

Size H Hook (crochet hook sizes here)
Row 1 - Chain 20. In 2nd chain from hook double crochet (treble in England)
Row 2 - DC in each chain. When you get to the end, 3 chain then turn
Row 3 - 20 - Repeat row 2
Join edges either by sewing or crochet whatever you prefer
Double crochet in the second stitch. Five more dc in same stitch.
Slip stich in 3rd stitch from the scallop.
Six dc in 3rd stitch from slip stich
Continue around the edge of the boot cuff.
Note: you may need to adjust the size depending upon the size of your calf and the thickness of the yarn. For the main part I only put the needle through one strand, rather than both of them which gave it a ridge effect.

A friend gave me a big bag of wine bottle corks and as I've remodeled my kitchen with a Tuscan theme, I thought they would be great for decorations. I used a 12" grapevine wreath and hot glued corks around it and added a few grapes that I found in Hobby Lobby.
For the trivet, I painted a picture frame, and when dry, rubbed it lightly with steel wool to give it an aged effect. I hot glued the corks onto the wooden backing. A friend has one that has corks in an old cigar box, which works better, but they don't seem to be as plentiful as they once were.

I received this lovely gift from a friend this week. She knows when we travel that I'm always disappointed when only coffee is available in a hotel room and no tea bags. This is a tea bag holder which would be great to pop in my suitcase.
Below are a few ideas for making a tea bag organizer
