Colourful Easter Welcome

                             


                                  





                                 It's Easter Week!!


                           Right now it's snowing here just north of the city
                                  of Toronto, Ontario.

                          We have about 3cm and it's still snowing.


                         So I wanted to share with you my Colourful
                                  Welcoming Easter Porch.










                                           I put this display together on the weekend
                                 since the snow was all gone and the
                                  temps were in the high teens celsius.

Colourful ...





                                      It was a rainy day.....

                 My grand daughter just had her bedroom
                    painted in her favourite colour
                                   teal......

                                             
                                                  
New colourful bedding of polka dots......

So I decided to make her a new
pillow slip in bright colourful colours...

I searched my stash and came up with these.

  
 Are these your colours??

Don't they just call sunshine...
Spring....and maybe Summer...

Thanks for stopping by!

Marshmallow Peeps and Nests

                                       Having a sweet fun afternoon
                               making Rice Krispie
                                          Nests.......

What a fun way to spend an afternoon with the kiddies making
                               these sweet treats!!   

                           
 

Over our March break my Grand daughter was here and we
                         had some fun days creating......

                    Well this day was just as fun because
                          it was sooo sweet and tasty.

                So we gathered our supplies:
                    muffin tins
                   rice Krispie cereal
                    marshmallows
                     lots of peeps
                     chocolate eggs
                     coconut and green food colouring

First we made the Rice Krispie  treats as recipe on the box
but instead of making them square we made nests.
Sprayed the inside of the muffin tins then molded each
square into nests.

Then we proceeded to add food colouring to the coconut
to make grass.

                   


Added the grass to the nests then started a production line.
                        nests,
                        grass,
                        peeps
                    and eggs.






                          






We popped a few chocolate eggs into our mouths and just maybe a few of the peeps.......
                               YUMMY!!

               Tied a few in cello and tagged them for
                      her friends....
                
                      We ate a few ourselves.....

                         Why not make them to have as
                               place settings at Easter Brunch!!

                      Why not give these a try.........




                                


                         Thanks for stopping by!
