Sweet Lil' Chickies

Last night was one of those nights for me...you know the one where you cant sleep...i seem to have alot of them...i hop into bed and my mind is racing with ideas for new paintings and creations....so last night i gave in and i just got up.
I popped a movie on in the background and sat at the kitchen table and went to work.

This is what i came up with !
Baskets of Chickies !
Be sure and click on the image to get a closer look :)



Arent they so cute (oh can i say that about my own creations?)!
I am really getting into Easter this year ( no it has nothing to do with all the chocolate..oh ok well maybe just a little)...but mostly due to my Sam and his innocent( and contageous) enthusiasm for just about everything in life !

I might pop these little sweeties on Ebay. Be sure and let me know if you'd like to grab one first or if you'd like one special ordered.

When Sam got up this morning and saw them he asked could he have one?? Then he decided he needed one BIGGER...that way it will fit more chocolate in it Mum.

LOL a chip off the old block thats for sure.
So he chose what he wanted on it and this is what we put together.



Remember the days of waiting for the easter Bunny to come....yep the good ole days.
AND we didnt have to worry about what all that chocolate was doing to our hips! Boo Hoo i wanna be a kid again Mummy :(

You know what, I have had those same nights, I sometimes can't sleep when I know I am going garage or estate saling the next day. Isn't that ridiculous? It's like when we were kids waiting for Christmas morning. I love your creations. Hey, creativity comes at all hours Shannon!! Stop by some time, I miss your comments!!

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

The baskets are gorgeous Shannon. Easter is my absolute favourite holiday and yes chocolate has a big part to play in that, but the weather is cooler and we have 4 days to relax and celebrate and eat chocolate and hot cross buns...yep got to love Easter and all the cute little bunnies and chickies....now I am counting the days!! Have a truly scrumptious day, kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
