Of course that brought on thoughts of Spring ...
I had fun visiting with my married daughter while she did some on line work at my dining room table and I put together these fun and crafty eggs.
I started by decoupaging real eggs that I had blown out* with light weight book page bits. Then added bits of paper lace, jewelry fittings, buttons, real lace, glitter, of course, and fun vintage bird art that I collected from Karen at Graphics Fairy. She has a delightful supply of vintage art, which keeps me coming back.
I am going to be doing some fun 'spring baskets' later and will add a couple of these eggs, but for now I have tucked them into my vintage 3 minute egg rack, complete with an tiny glass timer.
Hope your day is Egg-sactly right!
* The Greeley girls have asked me to tell how I blow out eggs. I use a thin long nail or an extra large needle and tap it lightly and repeatedly until I have made a tiny crack/indent/hole in the end of the egg. I keep working at it until the hole is about 1/16 to an 1/8 of in inch in diameter. Then I do the same to the other end. I then put my nail/needle into the egg and stir it to break up the yolk. Next I put my mouth against the smallest hole and blow out the inside yolk and white into a bowl. (I later use these for scrambled eggs or baking so they are not wasted). Now I put the empty egg into a bowl of water and suck so that the egg is filled with water, I swish it around to rinse the egg out then blow out the water. I do this three or four time to make sure its clean inside. Let it dry and its ready to use in arranged in a bowl or basket as is, or it can be dyed, or decoupaged, whatever you like. Good luck!
