So I made myself an Easter basket..

I am one of those eternal, materialistic children that still loves getting an Easter basket. My mother used to put together the most amazing, fun little Easter baskets that it was like having a second Christmas. There was nothing big or stupendous or expensive, but she has always had a keen sense of fun and would put the most nifty items in the ones I received all my life.

So, I made a little Target and Five Below trip and assembled a few things I love, and only one thing was over four dollars(the basket). Let’s take a look! (click on the pics for descriptions)

Happy Easter from Daddles and Me!

 

I couldn’t let this one slip by.

Here is my brother and me in probably 1975 or 76, with our Easter baskets. (he says we look like aliens in this pc :D) Β I had gotten a white toy kitty in mine, and I’m holding it in the photo. I still have it, but it’s packed away somewhere.

See the little toy ducky in Scott’s basket?

This little guy. Well, when we had to clean out my Mother’s house, I found him!

Daddles

I remember always coveting this cute fella. I seem to distinctly remember his name being Daddles. I hope it was, because I’m calling him that. Happy Easter from Daddles and me!

My Weird Little Easter Basket, part 1!

We’ve had a few crazy months here at WeirdCrest. My dear husband was away for months while he took care of his mother after a fall. Then he brought his mother home to stay with us(things are going well, but it definitely has wraughtΒ changes). Two weeks after I finally had my husband home, he was in a car wreck. While we pick up the pieces of the things that have happened, my little pet rescueΒ must keep going. Needless to say my husband has not been able to work so we have lost revenue there, etc., etc.,. Some friends sent me some Target giftcards, demanding I go get something fun with them. Well, goshdarnit, I DID.

I made up my own Easter Basket.My Β Ultimate Easter Basket, I should say.

I’ll do some more pics and posts later, because I’m quite giddy about it, but I have other irons in the fire right now with artwork. I’ll give you a little taste of one of the funnest things in the basket. Woot!

So here’s the spread! A dinosaur pail, A new Madball(Oculus Orbus, to be specific), Play-Doh Spring Eggs, A Jar Full of Dinos and a Jar Full of Ponies,plastic “Dino Eggs” that have stegosaur-like plates going down one side,a set of Flair felt tip pens, Β a Hex Bug Nano Robot in an egg,and because no Easter basket is complete without them, some wee chenille chicks in a pack of four.

Here I will talk about the Hex Bug Nano. It came in a small egg about the size of a small chicken egg.

Once I cut the packaging free I realized the bug has tiny bunny ears. Oh. Em. Goodness. πŸ™‚
I never have had one of these or seen oneΒ in action. Essentially you flip the switch on the underside and it goes into extreme scurry mode–it just scoots everywhere, and when it bumps into something it goes the other way. It gave me quite a giggle. It can get away from you quite easily!

LOOKIT THE TEENY EARS!!

I also got a pack of purple Peeps, but Steve and I ate most of them already. :/
