Easter is coming...

You always know when Easter is getting close.... you start seeing peeps everywhere. You know...PEEPS. Those sugar coated little fluffs of marshmallow goodness. I loved them as a kid and love them to this day. I liked to take them out of the package for a day or two and let them get stale...(was I weird or did others like this, too???)

Back in the day, peeps were yellow. Period. Today you can find them in pink, purple and even green! Amazing...

Look what I found browsing through Etsy today! Peeps!

This card is called "Riding with my Peep". Hilarious! There are several other cards in this series, you can find them at Plastic Ponies shop.

And how about some Chocolate Dipped Peeps with Candy Sprinkles in all the colors of the rainbow! These evil little peeps (and I mean that in a good way) come from Broken Road Farm. You'd better place your order now, I see a peep shortage coming...(Raise your hand if you always bit the head off the peep first?~~)

Or how about a peep that has ZERO calories and is just as cute and fluffy...



This adorable little needle felted peep is created by Wooly Works. Check out their shop for other adorable little critters.

Peeps and Easter go hand in hand. Did you get peeps in your easter basket as a kid?

I'm almost ashamed to admit it but until a few years ago I had *NO* idea what the heck a Peep was! :o

Put a peep in the microwave for a minute. They swell up HUGE. It is good fun.

Try putting one of those peeps in the microwave! Interesting at least;) Stale peeps...my sister does the same thing. Could it be a MI thing?

We have a running joke about Peeps in our family. My mother-in-law habitually buys my kids Peeps for Easter every year, even though they can't stand them. We've told her repeatedly that none of us eat them, but she buys them anyway, because she likes them. We never knew what to do with them, so we'd take them to work, but no one at work wanted them either. One year someone took all the Peeps and stuck them through the thorns on a cactus that was sitting on someone's desk. That cactus stayed decorated with Peeps all year long. So, each year we try to come up with more and more creative ideas on how to make use of the unwanted Peeps without eating them.

Well, I may be the only one left on the planet, but I have never eaten a peep. So you have inspired me, the next trip to the store, I will get some peeps, eat some peeps, so I can be a peepster too !

Yes, peeps are an Easter staple around here, too--as much as I can't stand them I have at least one out of the kid's Easter baskets.And yes the head comes off first! Very cute needle felted peep. Besides bunnies, I've always liked chicks, anything with a chicky logo or picture, animated or otherwise.

I haven't eaten peeps in years! I always thought they were cute though!

I love peeps...trying putting them in the freezer. Yes, the head always comes off first. Love all your other "peeps".

I have two "children", 24 and 33 and they still like Easter baskets. Crazy kids. At least I don't have to hide them anymore. But I was at the store tonight looking at Easter candy for them and I needed yellow Peeps. I couldn't find them!!! - there were purple ones, blue ones - even green ones but no traditional yellow. Finally I found a special display and there they were. ...The store knew. : )
