cadbury milk eggs
i can eat bags and bags and
still want to eat more.



A haiku for Shari. I made this little felt box to hold our cadbury milk eggs. I was feeling the need to do itty-bitty handwork. Do you ever get that urge? I do, along with the urge to eat cadbury milk eggs. Good thing they only sell them at Easter, or I might begin to resemble a cadbury milk egg.



My neighbor's garden is waking up. Do you see his little daffodils in this shoddy picture I just snapped from my window? His garden fills me with such joy. Twin and I think he actually has fairies and/or gnomes who garden for him, though. Because despite his spectacular garden, we never see him working in it. It's a mystery.

I will leave you with a few links of some lovely crafty ladies I have discovered recently:

Cadbury mini eggs are evil. I was so thankful that they only came once a year until this past Christmas, when I saw CHRISTMAS eggs. How dare they?

Its a terrible addiction. I'm sure we could start a group. Love your little box.

erin said...

just discovered m.writes myself. you gotta do that swap...

easter candy is everywhere around here. jelly beans are my weakness. i don't think i've had cadbury milk eggs...gotta go get me some.

and itty bitty handwork? i haven't had that urge in a good long while. i am a bit jealous.

Ohmy! Cadbury Milk Eggs are my FAVORITE candy. Not far behind are Wonka's Heartbreakers (they are out at valentine's time.)

Now I'm gonna have to go scrounge cabinets for a little chocolate...

my twin and i eat hoards of cadbury eggs! she does this thing where she'll buy a gross amount of bags and save them so we can eat them all year long (well, when we see one another)! it's so disgustingly terrific! (did you know cadbury made christmass balls just like the eggs? my sister still has a bag of those...) i enjoy reading your blog (by the way)!

Yummy eggs.

Maybe that guy gardens at night when he can't sleep? I know gardens do not make themselves -- oh how I know.

Jessicah said...

What a beautiful little box! Great use of a scrap of lace- I think I need to make one too!

leslie said...

aw shucks, thanks for the link - look at us doin' the reciprocating blog love thing!

your pics of the mini eggs* are making me drool. must buy some tomorrow and get off my cadbury cream egg kick.

*don't know why they're called something mini eggs in canada... that's weird. i'll have to ckeck what they're called here in oz and report back...

Corvus said...

Robin Eggs are my easter weakness. Mmmm.

kat said...

I won't buy any chocolate till later this week... afraid we'll eat it all! Love those candies.

Thanks for the new links. Always looking for great new blogs to visit.

I just got a bag of cadbury eggs and I didn't like them! looks like I am alone on this one....I mean, the chocolate, yes! but the powdery egg shell didn't sit well with me. i must be weird or pregnant. whatever.
at first I thought your neighbor's garden was a little pretend playset. It looks so whimsical and unreal. what a beautiful garden to view from your window. definitely fairies working in there.

hannah said...

would you believe that in college david and i lived with jenny's (wiksten)older brother? funny huh? loving that little box, but my weakness is for robins eggs... yum!

monica said...

a Cadbury milk eggs... divine. And do you eat them by colour? Yellow one last because they are the pretties.

Or is it just me?

hannah said...

Mmm, I love those little eggs, here in the UK they are called mini eggs, I bought 2 packets today. I like your little box, I should make one too, although I dont know that the eggs will last long enough out on display!! I eat them in colour order too, saving the prettiest until last, I thought I was the only one silly enough to do that.

Marmee said...

Is the man next door retired?
Like our neighbors across the street, whose garden always looks fabulous with nary a leaf anywhere, the work is done while I'm at work. Occasionally, I'll see John on a Saturday, but rarely. If I come home for lunch, he's often out there.

And hope you have a lovely week all week long.

shari said...

love your little haiku julie! i don't believe i've ever had cadbury milk eggs. now i want to try them! xo

mj said...

I get that urge all the time, but it doesn't always stick around long enough for me to finish the project!

amisha said...

i get that wee handwork urge from time to time... related to but distinct from the embroidery one. hmmm.
oh cadbury, how i love thee. though my poison of choice in this season is the creme egg. luckily it seems to nauseate everyone around me so i get them all to myself! :)

marta said...

oooh, these chocolate eggs are my weakness too. can't believe we all share the same craving. your blog is lovely as usual and am thrilled i made the list. thanks.

please don't resent these tiny scrumptious can't-get-enough-of-you mini eggs, they will be off the shelves in no time.. mid october i'll wish i had saved a package.

Sarah said...

That's funny you bet me to it! I give little packages of mini eggs away to my friends at Easter and am going to post a photo on my blog soon. It's the colours I love. Ok, the chocolate's not bad either.

Connie said...

Easter just has the best candy

christine said...

i am SO glad i'm not the only gal obsessed with cadbury mini eggs. really, my roommate teases me all the time. but if i get my hands on a bag, i'll eat them all that day. mmmmmm mini eggs. we should start a group. i may try to start something on my blog, dedicated to the little precious delights called cadbury mini eggs.

Village Vegan said...

Mmmm, cadburys... I love chocolate! And your little container for the eggs is so cute.

pip said...

happy happy birthday, zemo. :)

jenny said...

i love the cute little box you made for the eggs, even though i don't know why but i'm not that into easter. also, thanks for the shout out! i'm tickled pink (one of my mom's favorite sayings). :)

I am a totaly glutten for those damn little mini eggs..... absolutely love them. And each year I say "just one bag" and suddenly, before I know it, I've eaten 5!!! I agree with siew, we MUST be able to start a support group! Anyway, cute box and I love the skirt you made for vacation!!!
