Painted Eggs


1Today I thought i`d share something different with you – I know I have been a bit OTT on Cosmic Shimmers & The Mega Nestibility posting so although I was going to post the K-Card instructions I thought i`d leave it a day or so

These eggs were all painted by a friend of mine – some were gifts and others I bought – and wait for it for £15 a large egg – if you held one and saw how much work was in them you wouldn`t believe it  – the bases are moulded and flowers made to match using Fimo and the the design goes the whole way around the egg

What also is great they have dates on them and one is 1996 !!!! – they all have special reasons behind them – but I thought it would be nice to add them to my blog

2 This is my favourite – I asked for the design as it was after Grandad had died and my love for the flower he gave me from his garden – it also goes with the cross-stitch picture we did too

The ducks were a gift and were given as Jill the artist knew I loved ducklings

The 2 small bird ones were given as gifts to my Mum & Dad – I got them back when they had to down size from a 4 bed home to a 1 bed house !!! – still lucky me !!!!

Here is a frame that Jill did for Erin when she was born

It was to match the Humphey design we got as a border in the room and then Jill added flowers we liked and the words `cheeky little monkey`  as it `s a saying of mine – a special piece of work to us
