Another Spring Egg and an Altered Tag





An altered shipping tag 
for a Birthday.

Decorative elements include 
a vintage printable,
 a scrap of sheet music,
an applied butterfly 


and cherry blossom branch,
which are glittered 3D stickers.



The antiqued and glittered tag  
accompanies this 
lovely pink budding tulip.

Shouts of Spring
as it sprouts from a 
moss-filled egg 
resting on a little grapevine nest.

See another egg on a previous post here.






Hope you're enjoying your Spring
wherever you are!!

Sheet Music Paper Cones Decorated for Easter


These Easter Cones
were made using,

vintage sheet music,
gathered crepe paper streamer,
shimmer sticks pipe cleaner as handles,
and my altered shipping tags.

I love my little crepe paper carrots :)

Easter Eggs



After some inspiration from 
browsing the internet and
Pinterest, I wanted to
share my Easter Egg creations.

First, a decoupaged plastic egg
trimmed with jute twine, lace, and a tiny nest.



I found the perfect base to set it on
in this antique glass doorknob.

See...

Next, this inspiration came from 


Unlike Carolyn, I didn't use real eggs.

It was quick and easy to paint up a dozen faux eggs.

I placed mine in a little nest that I fashioned out of
some grapevine that I had in my craft closet.


Also, I chose to keep the part of the
egg that I randomly cut off
and hot glued it to the back of the top 
opening.


Looks so cute anywhere.

Atop a silver candlestick holder...


Under a gutter wire cloche
which I also made...


Thanks for the inspiration Carolyn.

Easter Bunny Paper Castings



Are you familiar with paper casting??

You can find instructions many
places around the internet
and on YouTube.

One I like is by Aunt Rosie.

I purchased a plastic chocolate mold on ebay
and gave it try.

I finished with acrylic craft paint
and decorated.

Turned out "cute as a bunny".
