Jeepers Creepers, check out those PEEPS

christmascandyMarch 29, 2011

With a nod to our own Kath and Frou Frou from another board, here is my collection of apothecary jars filled with peeps and silk tulips.

Fortunately, I am trying to stay away from sugar right now, so they are safe for the time being. LOL

The octagonal jar, cylinder vase, and tulips are from Dollar Tree. The other jar and the pink glass candleholder it is sitting on are TS treasures.

TTFN,

Candy

Karen, thanks, I like those colors together.

Jeanne, No butts about it, because of the shape of the container, their breasts are the prominant part and their tails are pointing into the center. No moons here, LOL

Thanks,
Candy

LOL, Jeanne.

Candy, have you seen the plush Peeps out this year? I saw them on eBay and then the CVS drugstore here had them. The chicks look cute in the box photo here, but when you take them out, they look deformed. LOL. So I just bought the bunnies, from eBay as they were cheaper and I got free shipping on them.

Just what I didn't need...MORE bunnies, and MORE Easter decos. I'm so hopeless.

hugs, Karen

Karen, those are really cute! I had not seen them, but that is probably because they aren't in the thrift stores yet, LOL.

You need more bunnies like I need more dishes, and yet, we keep on keeping on! I guess we're either committed to our collections, or we need to be "committed." Grins

TTFN,

Candy, your version of the peeps and bunnies jars are very colorful and neat. They are so sugary sweet to eat--decorating with them is a better idea I think. Luvs

Too cute! I like your tulip toppings. What is it about peeps that we all like for decorating? They bring out the silliness in all of us? My high school students were talking today about how they like to put them in the microwave and watch them turn into monsters! And my 50 something cousin, who is normally so classy, loves to eat them!

Candy, your peepers are cute as a bug and Karen, I have not seen those. I doubt that I would be able to pass them up either.

I am so stealing this idea to put in our middle school office. The wellness policy says no candy for treats, but it it doesn't say we can't looking at them. With all the winter we keep getting, a few peeps will cheer the place up. Thanks for the inspiration.

Susan, Peeps will definitely cheer your office, but you might need to glue the lids on. LOL.
Welcome to our gang by the way.

hugs, Karen

Thanks for all the "sweet" comments.

Hmmmm, I wonder if they would make good S'mores??
Maybe with white chocolate and vanilla wafers?

I might have to try it after Easter.

TTFN,
