thinking outside the box....of eggs

i was here a few days ago and this ceramic tray caught my eye.....


it's intended purpose is to hold a dozen of these.....


but i quite like seeing all of those little ceramic cubbies filled with
rainbow-chocolate-pretzel-happiness......


and my little dutch sweetie thought it would be a great
tray for my paints!
(have i ever mentioned before that he's an absolute genius?!)

{which works out well, because those m&m's weren't gonna last long
after their photo shoot anyway....heeheehee}

Wonderful! Love the colors on white. (Can you believe that WNY still hasn't gotten any M&M pretzels, Yet???? What's up with that? Is it because I'm not supposed to eat chocolate...?)

Love it! (Is distracted by Cristi Baxter Clothier's comment about Coconut M&Ms) What great ideas!

Kelly Warren said...

the M & M's wouldn't have lasted long with me either! I think you sweet Dutch boy's idea is perfect. The colors look so pretty in there. Anthropologie is a very dangerous place for me. :-)
