Messy Creative Hands...

I have always adored those little peat pots made into cute baskets.  So here is my version for Easter.

For anyone who knows me, I just hate to get my hands messy...not even for art's sake.  But here I am all a mess with paints.  I used my craft and house sample paints.  The colors are such a pastel delight.

Here are my little finished baskets.  I gave some to my friends and kept one for myself.

Here is the one I made special for me.  A soft pastel blue with a little cutie riding a bunny.

Oh how fun!  Looks like Peter Cottontail is soon to arrive.
We are having Spring rain here.  Nice and refreshing and hopefully keeping the pollen in check.
Stocking up on chocolates and veggies for Sunday.
Happy Hopping...
