And my favorite...



I love this fake moss covered basket and finally decided what I wanted to put inside...glitter and chocolate. What could be better?! I tried my hand at making these glitter eggs that Martha had on the cover of her magazine last year. Here's a pic. They're gorgeous! Also saw some beautiful eggs with the same idea here, here and here recently. I remembered that I had bought some good size paper mache eggs at JoAnn fabrics that opened up. So I painted them, added some glitter and a few flowers and trim. When I found the polka dot foiled chocolates with peanut butter (yum!!) at Walgreens, I knew they'd be perfect for the inside. Viola!

gorgeous eggs, and isn't it cool how each person really puts their own "stamp" on the same idea? LOVE that!
