Crazy chick and happy eggs!

No I haven't gone mad and started making more Easter decorations!! One of my work colleagues has just got her own free range chickens in her garden....having previouly supplied me with a load of these jars I thought I'd return the favour and give her one back again!

My theory was that if I made it all girly it would stop her teenage sons from pinching the egg money from the jar!! The cute chick is there to add bit of humor to the project!!
ps: Thanks to Rosita for supplying me with a bright yellow egg box......that one WILL be turned into an Easter decoration.......next year!!

Love and happy eggs
