Even though we still have snow on the ground in these parts, I’m ready for spring to be here! So when I found this stuff at Salvation Army, I snatched it up:
Next I decided to try my hand at blowing out real eggs. I’ve seen cute fake eggs, but just couldn’t justify buying them…you know I’m a cheapskate. It wasn’t too hard to blow the eggs, but I did get raw egg on my lips. EW!! And of course I saved the eggs to make french toast for breakfast. 🙂 Then I dyed the eggs in vinegar and Crayola kids watercolor paint (hey, use what you have, right?) and “speckled” them with permanent markers. Added the eggs with some rafia in my glass jar and changed out the picture in my frame for a metal easter egg that’s part of a wreath I got free several years ago. Whala! Spring!
What do you think? Is it better with the little candle and flowers? I feel like it still needs something, but I don’t know if this is the right something. It was the best I could come up with shopping around my house. What I really want is a little ceramic bird or bunny. There’s still time. We’ll see what I can come up with.
