Upcycled Candy Dish for Petaloo

Within my stash there are many mismatched pieces of china. Lonely tea saucers out-number dainty teacups cups. You'll often find very pretty saucers quite inexpensively at thrift shops.


Their cups long lost because of chips and broken handles. It seems a shame they are so often overlooked, so I decided to give one some love and make this candy dish to hold a handful of Easter treats.


If you hop over to the Petaloo blog today, you'll find this pretty thing, along with instructions on how to create your own!

Don't forget to buy loads of treats to place inside. My husband is a jelly bean man, but I prefer chocolate bunnies.

  1. Lovely and too sweet for words NIchola!

    Oh if there is one thing I miss about Easter as a kid it was the sight of overflowing candy dishes! All that milk chocolate and the creme eggs! All the other holidays were home-baked cookie fests in our family but Easter. .. chocolate truly ruled the day! And it occurs to me now that I never knew a single person who really liked eating the marshmallow peeps. They sort of frightened me actually. . . still do. : )
