More Pretty Fanciful Eggs


We all love spring and Easter for so many reasons. The lovely colors of the flowers and the greening of the grass and trees is a soothing relief after a long cold and snowy winter.
And all of that falls right into creating, too! Working with lovely and happy spring colors and making things for our Easter decor is just plain Fun!

I took the time to finish embellishing these four eggs this morning and you can see more detail at The Ruffled Rose
They look so pretty in this Mikasa glass heart that I have had for so long, I know I will have to make some for me!

I love making these pretty eggs and like the velvet eggs that I have been making, they are really nothing new. All of us that have been crafting for years, made them for home and craft shows years and years ago. The velvets then were richer in color and the blossoms on them were not from vintage millinery or the handmade Mulberry paper roses, as they are now. I also, had these as well as the velvet eggs, in a boutique in Rancho Bernardo, CA. when we lived there.

And, I am in a faux baking mood, so watch for cookies and cupcakes coming soon!



If any of you would like to know how to make them, just write to me for instructions. I will be more than happy to help you!

Have a happy and fun weekend!
Jil

Hi Jil, Your eggs are so pretty. We have had pretty good weather excepting for the wind. When the cold front goes through we will drop back to the 40's tonight. Easter is quickly approaching and it will be spent with family. Take care Your Missouri Friend.
