little peeps...


with easter only a week away i thought i would share these photos of my little peeps, some fancy eggs, and two tiny easter baskets i made.
this little chick is our tiny baby bantam hen 'oreo' she was so patient for the photo shoot... we have three little chicks in a box downstairs, talk about constant peeping. i love it when they cuddle up together and fall asleep.



i ordered a bunch of paper mache eggs from blumchens. they have such a gorgeous paper design inside. it was so easy to add a bit of paint and some of my favorite millinery flowers. i ended up making a whole basket of them!
for the photo i nestled them together in a vintage creamware dish with a bit of tissue paper garland from bethany lowe.





these tiny baskets are just the right size for a handful of chocolate treats. the first one is made from a vintage crocheted nut cup holder. i found a box of these at my antique store. gladys anderson kept them in an old cummings chocolates box. she crocheted a set of these and starched them to hold a little waxed dixie cup. the old paper cups were still in the box. how fun to fill with a tasty treat and pass around the card table for the ladies bridge night.
the second basket is made with a tiny box made from artist matt board cut and glued together. the vintage cotton chenille stem makes such a sweet handle tied on both ends with a bit of ribbon. happy easter wishes, julie

Ah, Oreo is too cute and what a gorgeous photo! I can just imagine the cuteness of all of them cuddled together!

I love, love, love your Easter art pieces! They remind me of all the things I loved about Spring growing up-those Easter Egg colours and the glitter reminds me of those sugar eggs you would look through to see a scene. Love the little baskets too! I just love everything you create!
Take care,
merle

Oh, dear Oreo is so sweet. We used to raise chicken for eggs and loved the sound of their happy peeping and chirping. Your little baskets are adorable, but the collage with the bird eggs... perfection.

Got my little package of rosey flowers I'd ordered from your Etsy shop. So wonderful, almost too pretty to make anything out of, so for now, I am just enjoying looking at them!

Lovely little Easter treats. Brings back memories...melty candies in foil, baby jack rabbits, and white ankle socks.

I can't believe that Oreo let you get such a good shot.

You did a terrific job and hope you weren't nervous.
