An Award! How wonderful! and Pretty Easter Crafting!

How wonderful!! An Award -for Me!
The Darling Twiggypeasticks has Awarded me the Art+Y+Pico Award - I must Thank her Sooooo much - I am thrilled!
More of this once I have mastered the 'putting it on my blog' bit. I am sure it is easy once you know what to do! Any advice most welcome!
Had an awful day (stressful) with trip to the Drs with son No3 - it resulted with him being admitted to hospital, and you know how long winded these admissions can be, endless questions ( I know they need the information) -but its so tiring!
We've left him there- its surprising how much braver he is with the pretty nurses! ( he is 22 but still like a 7yr old with his Mum!)
Anyway on to something more interesting and fun - glad I did these yesterday ready for Easter it looks like I will be tied up at the hospital for a day or two. These are my chocolate Easter Bunnies. I took lots of photos - I like to look at lots of photos, especially when people are crafting - it gives me ideas and inspiration!
And I think, sometimes enviously - 'where did she get that fabulous trim' or whatnot!

Little Bunnies out of the mould, resting on a beautiful hand embroidered tray cloth that Hubby found this week in a Charity shop - I have him well trained!
I wrapped the Bunnies in some clear cellophane and tied with a bow.

And here are the little cheery bags I made earlier in the week, filled with Choccy eggs and chicks!

All the goodies on the table, mostly found at carboot sales and charity shops - and squirreled away to add fun and frolics to fabulous fripperies!

An Easter Basket for my little nieces - the nice choccy gifts wrapped in vintage paper bags and
tied with a bow!
Just a little couple of pics of the bag I was making last week - using the vintage 'Beano' comic
I made it quite large, with long handles so that it can be used as a 'shoulder bag'. I thought it might appeal to students to carry their work, or any other of us who hark back to those comfortable days of curling up with a good Comic!

'Desperate Dan' on one side, interior lined with 'Comic' fabric and little pocket, for phone/purse.

And 'Denis the Menace' on the other!
Bag 'body' is made form a vintage dark grey woollen blanket, and trimmed with red braid and one or two vintage buttons! just for fun!

I would like to offer this bag for sale here - to others who appreciate the different and quirky! It would be nice to see it go to a nice friendly home. For sale for £20 inc post and packaging in the UK (please contact me for postage to other destinations)
