I've since moved the lights down below and added some egg coloring kits to finish the effect
Will post later. The hydrangea "house" at the top--between the two carrot containers--is one I made myself--the little hen and chicks inside are very old, made in Germany

Thank you. One of the neighbor children came over and said oh you have an Easter store in your kitchen! She then asked if she could buy the peeps and a little white Easter bunny (actually it is one of seven vintage erasers)---she got both for free. Made my day.
