Easter Eggs

Wow! Over 2 months since my last post. Sheesh!

I finally took the time to complete some fun Easter/Spring decor.

Lovely specimens have been gracing blogland in all types and fashions...butterflies,

spiders, flowers, shells, get the pictures.

I unloaded my spring tubs from the garage a couple of weeks ago and found a hideous egg topiary I had tried to put together last year. Simple ugly. So, tore it apart and created a framed egg specimen display.

Each egg is cut in half (tricky when some are plastic) and I needed to hot glue some spanish moss on the edges to hide where the paint had chipped. I actually like that part. Then, I glued each egg to a piece of sheet music that I distressed with a little of Tim Holtz distress ink (THE BOMB!) I use it on everything...paper, fabric, paint. Since this was an old frame I found in the closet and of course, is missing a backing, I used semi-permenant glue dots to attach the sheet music to the frame glass. The 3D effect is nice.

Here is the finished pieced on my buffet, Baxter.
Looks like an Eggapalooza, if you ask me.

So, there is my new addition to the Easter Collection of crap to dust.
What have you added this season?


I'm linking to the following parties:


  1. Hi, friend! Newest follower :) You've got so much creativity going on in your blog so can
    you please share them with us at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop?

    This is a combination of linky party (where we can show off our creations) and of blog hop (where we can follow as many excellent bloggers as we like), hence the name Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop. It's a great way to meet awesome creative bloggers like you and increase your followers in the process.

    All you have to do is 1) link up whatever creative post you'd like to share - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes, poem, thrift finds, tips, or that informative syndicated post that can make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! 2) Then follow as many blogs as your heart desires, preferably starting first with the one before you and after you, and leave a comment to them that you're doing so.

    You’re not required to include the party button but if you’re so inclined to display it in your blog or your post, you’re very much welcome to
