Chocolate Anyone?

.............they are a bit 'dusty', as I haven't taken them all off since spring cleaning. They are a nuisance to clean because they fall off all over the floor. Hopefully I can get to them soon. So please excuse the dust.

When my daughter was small she loved anything with chocolate as all kids do. So everytime she went for a visit to my parents house my Dad would have a Kinder Egg for her. If you have never had one well.........it's a chocolate egg wrapped in foil and when you break it, it's hollow you get a surprise toy in it. Before you knew it she had a vast collection.

Me........being a collector of anything couldn't throw them out. So one day as I was at a Flea Market I saw an old printer's drawer. Then a "light bulb" went off and as you can see this is what I did with those lil' toy surprises.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!!
