Peep Show

Love them or hate them, one has to appreciate Peeps - the sugary little treats that have become an Easter icon. For your peeping pleasure, here are a truckload of my favorite Peeps images. The Eames Peeps above found via flickr user ihveissues. And for more great Peeps, be sure to visit K at Blog Goggles. K is one of MY coolest peeps (Yes I'm too silly, but seriously - go there!). Rainbow army of Peeps below via flickr user psilver.

And to think our parents told us not to play with our food.

Ahh these are all adorable, I've never heard of them before. This could be because I'm from England or because I'm just not down with Easter-related icons...whatever the reason I'm glad to be finally introduced. They are sooo cute!

Our local library had a "peep show"

Loved the Peep Show! I had to come and follow you simply because of your blog's name. I love renovation, but my husband is a 'I want it all new guy.' We are doing our own finishing of our house. How come it takes so long to do your own place? Come visit sometime.

Lilu, Peeps Kabobs sound fantastic! And I don't even eat them (not fond of the gritty sugar texture). Although, I would definitely eat a Peep Kabob roasted over a campfire, or even better a Peep S'more!

Do my friends outside of the US know what S'mores are? Roast a marshmallow over a fire, place on a graham cracker, top with a small square of chocolate (traditionally Hershey's), top with another graham cracker. It gets all melty and gooey and messy and is delicious!
