Today's project included these little egg shell vases for the Easter table. I used Martha's idea of decoupaging the egg shell with paper napkins. I love the napkins I have so much that I don't want to use them, so this is a way to make them last. I decoupaged the napkin to the egg shell and then sprinkled glitter all over them. They turned out pretty cute! One thing to note, while using a Dremel tool to cut the tops off, watch out! The egg white gets on that little saw blade and is thrown all over the place! I had it all over the side of my cabinet.
I have done something else with the napkins too. It isn't done yet, so I'll have to show it to you tomorrow.
Here is my Easter card from V. Isn't it sweet? His Kindergarten writing is so cute. The bunny on the front is made with his thumbprint and the ears are made with the side of his thumb. Awwwe! Better yet, is the bunny on the inside. It is SO Kindergarten!
This morning, I took and hour and whipped up a coffee cozy to go with the apron I made. I love how it turned out! There is a ruffle around the top with a row of silk flowers just under the ruffle and then rickrack in the middle between the two fabrics. Then it is tied up with a silk ribbon so that it can be adjusted to accomodate the size of a bigger cup.
Next is the apothocary jar I got at Michaels the other day. I love it. I think it will be really versitile because it looks like a gumball machine or fish jar, etc. Love the pastel colored M&M's that are out right now.
J. brought me flowers this morning. I called him to see if he would pick up some flowers to go in my new egg shell vases and he was already on his way home from the store. I told him what I had wanted and he laughed because he had already gotten me some! How weird is that?
I also put some in the little vase napkin rings that I have on my kitchen table. Here's what they look like. I love these dishes I got at Salvation Army for $.99 each! I got a set of 4.
