Easter Eggs and Birds

First of all I want to thank all of you for putting me over the 200 mark. Yippee!

To recap my journey I would have to say that I have been pretty busy the last couple of months doing project of all kinds and learning soooo much. I have met wonderful friends and been featured 14 times for various project. Thank you, Thank you! I have received so many wonderful comments from all of you and I am so appreciative of that. I never knew blogging could be so much fun!

I will be doing a giveaway next week. I think you will like what I will have for you to win!

I can't believe Easter is next weekend! I still have baskets to do! Yes I still do them for my grown children and yes they still love them! Of course its more like a mini Christmas with all the presents in a basket. I have to pick up my daughter from college next week and then have a short weekend with her and my son.
I am still decorating too. I guess you can never have too many spring decorations to brighten up the house.
Yesterday I made some decoupaged eggs and a Jiffy Pot basket. I also decoupaged the $1 bird from the basket at Michaels. He got a much needed makeover! A couple of small projects to add around the house.

I used a napkin and Mod Podged it to the egg.

I like the way it looks old.

I made more to have some different.

This is the Michaels Bird. It had newspaper print and I thought scrapbook paper would be prettier so I Mod Podged the little guy! The Bird with the crown is from Michaels too and the silver pedestal bowl from Goodwill 2.99. After seeing the picture I wanted the bird with the crown in the bowl and moved the other one to a planter.....much better!

He looks more regal there!


Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Check back here soon for the giveaway!
