I love decorating for Spring, over the years
I've amassed all sorts of eggs,
dyed, painted, wood, glass, and natural ones .
You can see them inside and out, I rarely put
These glass ones I adore, and have lots of them
all over the garden, when the sun hits them they
illuminate like fire opals .......
I collect nests as well, they also can be found
all over the house year around, I especially
love them under a glass dome .......
These are actually gourds I covered with paper layers
I recovered from a old, falling apart japanese screen
given to me by my friend Gayle, I decoupaged,
then added metallic powders, and sealed with a acrylic
coating...... they look beautiful for rustic outdoor
table setting, however will not hold up in wet or
damp weather ..
These egg shaped turquoise nuggets
I enjoy in my studio, the dark veining is
strikingly beautiful, don't you think ?
This spectacular ostrich egg was hand done by my
friend Annie, the other five are painted wood I bought
in Russia...... this grand bowl is perfect to display my
growing collection .......
These sweet little ducklings I've had for many years,
yes.... stuffed ( natural causes I was told ) are always in a
spring arrangement on my kitchen counter...
This beautiful painting of eggs and turquoise pot
was done by my grandmother, It hung over our
dining room table when I was a child, I bring it
out front and center in the Spring months ...........
Spring in Yosemite...... I will be going next month for
9 days to assist Annie Lawrence artist workshop, I'm so excited !
We will teach from 10 ~ 2 each day, then have the rest of the day
to do our own art, explore, and take in the majestic scenery,
tremendous water falls, raging rivers, and blooming dogwood......
I will take plenty of photos to share with you .
Hope you have a few eggs to put in your nest this spring ~
Wishing you happy days, victoria
