Met. Monday!



Thanks to Susan for hosting Met Monday. Visit her over at: http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/




As my dear husband went through the attic he came upon a bag full of ceramic eggs, half were brown the other half white. They looked like the photo below except over time the brown looked more orange and the white looked grey. After long thought I decided to paint them up for Easter.




I took some, painted them white first, than bright colors and added dots to some while I left the others solid.




I than took the rest and pained them light blue, green and yellow..




They still did not look the way I wanted them to I speckled them..now I love my orange and grey eggs!








I love this bowl it was my great grandmothers...I usually just have it on a shelf, but it really brought the eggs to life.

How clever. I love all the eggs. They are especially nice with the dots and speckled. Very creative. The blue bowl does really make the eggs pop. Love it. Hugs, Marty

Great job! Very impressive! I love playing around with eggs, too! You have a nice collection, and ceramic even... Maybe when my son is 10, I can start to be more brave, lol!

Happy Monday!
