SAHM CRAFT! It's Not Even Easter, But I Painted Eggs
I have always loved eggs. In fact, one of my earliest memories involves sitting on an egg in the back seat of our car on the way home from church one morning.
(It was actually inside my little white plastic purse with the gold twisty opener which I tossed into the car and then plopped my frilly dress bottom down on. See purse of knock-kneed child at left.)
I'm sure you'd like to know why I took an egg to church when it wasn't Easter.
Well, it doesn't have to be Easter to appreciate an egg, does it?
No, I didn't think so.
Anyway, a few days ago, I bought some plain white ceramic eggs at Hobby Lobby.
(Someone, please, prevent me from frequenting the Lobby of Happiness every single day of my SAHM month! They're having a sale right now of 80-90% off. NINETY PERCENT. I bought a $50 platter for $5! And then I passed out from exultation [the act or condition of rejoicing greatly] and they had to carry me and the platter to my car!)
Anyway part 2, I had previously bought a fake nest at HL, so I later bought the eggs and the robin's egg blue paint to sponge paint them with. Then I bought some Spanish moss. Heaven!
Another point for SAHMness: there is no place for Spanish moss in the office. That's sad.
One last added touch: feathers. Ohmygosh I love feathers.
So now I have another addition to La Chambre De Fifi:
So, is there some object in nature or a particular shape or design that you have a weakness for? (No, I'm not talking about Pitts, Clooneys or McConaugheys. I'm talking about eggs, feathers, puffy clouds or paisleys, etc.)
