Eclectic chic painted eggs...

Before blogging, I never really thought about decorating for each and every holiday....I think some bloggers even decorate for flag day LOL!!....Anyway, I pretty much missed doing anything for Valentine's Day. It's actually Sami's birthday that day, so that pretty much takes precedence anyway. As far as Easter goes, I didn't plan on doing much, but I feel the need to do at least one thing to keep up just a wee little bit here in blogland....Plus, what I did I can sell on Etsy.

I took some cedar boards, traced a large egg pattern, and used my jigsaw to cut them out. Afterwards, I painted them, "decorated" them, then the final stage was to distress. They are actually pretty cute.....






If I can motivate, I think I'll make mini ones to put on my winter wreath. Right now I have metal snowmen and snowflakes.


Be sure to check out the fabulous very soft burlap pillow covers in my GIVEAWAY


And one last order of business :)
Kristin at My Uncommon Life Slice of Suburbia posted the sweetest feature about my blog today. Most of you probably know her, but if you don't, go say hello to her. You will fall in love with her and her blog.....

  8. What a great idea! I just bought 4 little oval plaques at Hobby Lobby the other day because they were on clearance for next to nothing and they each had two knobs on them. The price was a steal just for the knobs but, now I know a wonderful thing to do with the plaques too! I hope you don't mind?!
    Congrats on the feature too! Very well deserved!!

  12. I think some people are going a little over the top when they decorate for flag day. I think it's important to decorate for birthdays and Christmas maybe even Easter. It's just that depending on your religion you could be decorating so much you'd be exhausted. Jewish people have many holidays. If they had to decorate for every holiday they probably would be very tired.
