What I Have Been Doing Lately


I have been decoupaging eggs recently.  It's just so much fun and I have
been having a great time.  I think it's been good for me too because I have
been able to stop worrying about the asthma attacks.  The last couple of
days have been so much better for me, and I am so relieved.

I have been cutting out designs from these pretty Caspari cocktail
napkins and decoupaging them onto wooden eggs.  It's a bit time
consuming, but fun too.



I am planning a Spring tablescape with these eggs.  I will probably
show you the results next week.




 I also used Caspari napkins for these blue and white toile eggs.  I have
so many blue and white pieces in my dining room, and I think that all
the eggs grouped together in a big crystal bowl filled with magnolia
leaves will make a nice centerpiece for the table.



I still have several more eggs to complete.  My next project is a grouping
of hand painted eggs.  I have to sharpen my skills again.  Years ago I 
hand decorated furniture and sold it at various shops.  It was so labor intensive
that I gave it up.  Painting Easter eggs seems like a lesser undertaking, so
I am up for it.  

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  It is 80 degrees here today, but it 
looks like we will be having rain and thunderstorms over the weekend.
More indoor projects in the future.

Sparkle and Shine and Big Texas Hugs,

  5. Love your decoupage eggs, especially the blue ones. They look like they are made of glass.....so pretty. I have also been decoupaging eggs. I downloaded music sheets of Peter Rabbit, cut into think strips and then decoupaged them. I then put them on a wooden skewer and placed them in with a flower arrangement. Others I put in a tall galvanized bucket, with dried stems from my day lilies. I also spray painted some of the eggs with paint that looks like cement and hung them from my chandelier in my sitting room, then I draped ivy I bought from Hobby Lobby above the hanging eggs. I love the look. One of my favorite projects.
