We Are Going on an Egg Hunt

I participated in Viv's Whimsy Easter Egg Hunt Swap. Today is the day to hunt for eggs!Each participant created two eggs to send Viv's way. She then separated and packaged all the eggs and sent two back to all of us. Today all the participants will link on her blog and find who's eggs they received by hunting all of the blogs. What fun!
Inside one of the eggs I made. A little bird keeps watch over a little treasure in her nest.
A woodsy little egg with a lichen covered niche. It's base is a vintage Jello mold.
A cozy place to build a nest.
The second egg I made contains a sweet chenille chick decked out in her Easter bonnet with a little veil at the front.
I covered the bottom of the egg in pastel buttons with a little stack of buttons for a stand.
She is nesting in a bit of pale pink tissue garland. A soft bit of fluff for a dear little chick.
The eggs I received are delightful. A glittery lavender egg wrapped in green tinsel and topped with a spring flower.
I placed it on my computer desk under a dome created from a drain guard and a glass knob. (I saw this done on another blog and loved it. If it was your blog let me know, as I can't remember where I saw it.:-)
My second swap egg is a darling aqua and pink confection. A little egg box wrapped in ribbons and tags.
Inside is the sweetest little chick wearing a matching crown and nestled in the tiniest bits of iridescent fluff.
A lot of lovely detail adorns the outside of this egg.
They are arranged in a vignette at the side of my computer desk so I can enjoy their Eastery goodness every day. Now I am off to hunt for the generous artists who created these eggs. Wish me luck.

Happy hunting, P.
Pin It!

Oh, Pam, don't you LOVE Spring???

Those eggs are so adorable! Happy Hunting.

Speaking of Spring, if you go to my blog and look at the blogs I follow, there is one called "Fairegarden" which has some of the most fantastic pics of flowers. You might enjoy...

Ah, yes, and the Bengals...I found it hilarous that Mikey Brown made Carson do his dirty work for him (on the recorded message). LOL I would have kept my tickets too, if I had them. Like I always say, where the Bengals are concerned, Hope always spring Eternal!!!

Have a GREAT Sunday!

How Fun! All of those eggs are simply beautiful!

***I love your pictures!!***

I love the fact you stood yours up with a vintage jello mold...I was wondering what you were going to do with those!!! You are just sooo talented!

And that little chenille chick is just so sassy with her little crown. She is certainly the center of your little vignette!

Have fun Egg Hunting...I think I'll spend the day peeking around the bushes too!!! This was a cute swap!

These (both the ones you created and the ones you received) are marvelous! So sweet - and lovely - and graceful!

Now - what exactly is a drain guard? I have many drains in my home, but I don't have anything that looks remotely like that little cage!

Happy Hoppy Sunday!
