Do any of you remember yard eggs? Yard eggs were a phenomena that hit...oh maybe in the eighties...I am truly not sure. They are ugly, plastic eggs that one would put in their yard at Easter-time. The giant eggs, in their garish colors, would make a ugly Easter display that was, well, just plain GARISH and UGLY!!
Hold your horses! Shelly at Bungalow Bling has reinvented yard eggs and has made them into such a beautiful new decoration that you are going to be scouring every rummage sale you can find this Spring in search of old yard eggs!
Check this out, my friends...
Shelly has decoupaged the giant egg with old sheet music and embellished it with ribbons and lace and wonderful old vintage pictures!
Ok...I will let you get a better view of this treasure...
Isn't that just something? And I won it! I have been so lucky lately and actually have won two beautiful pieces of art on Shelly's blog.
Plus, being extremely generous, she also sent me this little pack of Easter ephemera and all sorts of yummy bits and bobs.
The ribbons at the top are tied into a beautiful bow that says, Make a Wish. How sweet is that?
Thanks, Shelly. You are a wonderful blog friend.
And as Shelly would end by saying, to all of you "a giant Easter hug and a big old bus on the cheek!"
Check her blog out to find out just what she means by a "bus on the cheek" and you will also get a chance to enjoy the really clever things she creates.
