Oh, fabulous! I "collect" paint chips, too. I love the rabbit, we had baby bunnies in our lawn again this year. Different house, same deal.

Also, the blue paint chips could be underwater. Just sayin.

Such fun pieces. I really like the roots and the rabit burrowing underground. I often glue paint cards into my journals...especially when I am making lists.

There were paint chips like these in a store near my town, i grabed some to bring home and the owner told me to pay for it! I bought the paint he was selling, but still he didn't allow me to bring some chips. Grrr!
