This is a fun post. Nothing deep. We’re just talking about eggs. Getting you in the mood for Easter, which is finally around the corner. And after all the arctic temperatures and ice storms we’ve put up with this year, cute, coloured eggs are exactly what we want to be talking about.
Just a little spring inspiration is all.
What do you do with all those cartons of eggs you and your kids decorate each year? I usually put them in a pretty bowl somewhere, and that’s that. But this year I’m going to spread them around a little. Pretty up the house. Add a little Easter here and there.
Here are some pics to get you thinking. This egg is only decorated with a red ribbon – easy, non?
How about these puppies? Even easier. Plain white eggs out of the carton, popped into a small coffee cup with some raffia straw. Sweet!
Eggs always look great displayed in a nest. You could make a similar “nest” with a rustic wreath and some moss.
These sweet quail eggs look great displayed in a pretty teacup.
And look at how these eggs look so beautiful simply set on a rustic surface.
My favourites of these are the simplest ones.
We have more egg inspiration coming up later in the week, so make sure to drop back in.
And why not have a look at the beautiful hand-painted Austrian eggs I picked up in Vienna last year. I’ll be putting these on some big branches on my dining table.
