|I made a batch of baby chicks....|
|and a batch of bunnies... I cut mini marshmallows|
in half to make the ears.
|Doesn't it look festive! A plate of sweets paired up with my chickiemug rug.|
|I spent yesterday decorating the house too. I couldn't decide how I wanted to use my bunny mug rug, with a bunny dish...|
|...or paired with an egg holder and some chocolate carrots.(The pattern is available as a PDF on Etsy and Craftsy)|
|My sis, Gena, passed this plate to me at our Chili Cook off filled with|
Scotch a roo's...
|I'm passing it on to one of my sisters filled with Easter treats.|
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. On Thrusday I get to join a group of friends and see 'Godspell' and then celebrate Easter again on Saturday with my husband's side. I'm planning on making more chickie and bunny cookies.
