Eggs


Last Easter I decided I needed to have a bowl of wooden eggs. I bought them and did nothing with them. Until December. I know, it's an odd time to think of eggs.

One night, during Advent, the children were painting. I remembered my eggs and decided I would finally paint them. After painting them, I speckled them with a toothbrush (except the golden egg). And the next day I sealed them with clear spray paint. I remember the day I sprayed them. It was the day of Taylor's birthday sleepover and each boy that came to our house asked me why I had "Easter eggs" on the front porch. I'm sure the parents thought I was nuts.

And guess what! Last week I bought some smaller "robins eggs" that I plan to paint blue. They might be painted this spring. Maybe. I'm not making any promises. (I still have Easter outfits to figure out and make! That's my priority.)

I remember clearly when you were painting those eggs and I *did* think you were nuts. But who's laughing now???? Those are so pretty!

I can't wait to the blue ones!

Your eggs are pretty! I couldn't have them in my house because I'm sure they wouldbe thrown or hidden some place. Good luck getting your Easter outfits together - you don't have much time!

Pretty eggs... I think light blue ones sometimes later this summer will be a lovely addition. ;)

I'm sure 4 days is plenty of time for the talented Lera to whip up a whole wardrobe for the family... isn't it? Can't wait to see what you do! xo

Lera WILL get things done on time! I just wonder how she does it everytime!

Eggs? I like mine sunny side up, soft boiled ~ eaten from the shell which drives DH crazy - when he has them, they are cracked into a small warmed bowl with soy sauce and black pepper!; and in dark chocolate form!

Those eggs are pretty! I think it is a great idea.

I am sure you will come through as always and have those Easter outfits all ready.

oh - and how clever to use a toothbrush to speckle. i'm going to have to file that one away.
