Peeps and Kewpees

Today our family went to see this special Peeps exhibit at the Art Museum because Rachel had a submission. It was so much fun! While most of the displays used actual (unnaturally fluorescent) marshmallow bunny and chick Peeps, I loved that Rachel's wasn't going to decompose anytime soon. (I voted for you, Rachel!!)

After that, we walked around downtown a little bit, then stopped for lunch at Kewpee's. The boys had burgers and their homemade root beer, and I had some chili. Yum! While we were eating, I noticed a few dolls in their wall of Kewpee Dolls had little crocheted outfits on them. I didn't figure that hubby would be willing to take a picture for me, so I just asked the family sitting there if I could take a picture over their heads. They were very sweet and understanding.

Little bright ruffly dress!

On the first shelf are some little crocheted pilgrim outfits, and on the second shelf there are some smaller ruffly dresses!

After that, I realized that there was another section that had a Mrs. Claus and a cute orange dress on another doll, but I'd already used up my bravery of interrupting other peoples' lunches, so I'll have to save those for another (less busy) day. =)


  1. Thanks for the vote. BTW - I think I didn't actually interpret the rules correctly. I figured image of peeps meant I could make my own. Apparently I had to USE peeps. At least they were kind and let it hang with the rest of them.

  2. I love kewpee dolls I think they are adorable!

  3. Hi Mindy, finally was able to follow! I love your blog, such a wonderful variety of crochet (my favorite), great recipes. Your headbands and neck warmers are great. The crocheted rope, I must try this, was happy to find your instructions and pictures. Have put you on my blog so I can visit often. Have a wonderful day, blessings.


I love your comments and questions! I'll reply as soon as I am able. Thanks for visiting!
