  1. Cute cute! The eggs are adorable!

  2. Cute butterfly star pillow and love the folksy eggs. I made an fabric Easter egg swag for our fireplace.

  3. This is so cute. I just love the butterfly especially.
    I´ve made a big basket filled with different decorated eggs and then a bif hen and a bunch of small chickens too. All my grandkids just love the entire arrangement, that we put on the table here. And then I´ve made a wallhanging as 3 sizes of eggs made from felt and decotrated with different easterdecorations too.

  4. Simply adorable and thanks so much for sharing with us! I will have to try and make some of those Easter Eggs .... I am working on homemade Easter cards right now .. won't be long and Peter Rabbit will be here! Thanks for a chance to win.

  5. Well I don't normally make Easter decorations, but I think I'm going to have a go at making some of your fabulous eggs! Thanks for the instructions!

  6. Gorgeous projects. I spend more time in the garden for spring than creating things inside for spring. I do make spring layouts though.

  7. I had a basket with fall flowers and decorations in it. I pulled all of that out and updated it for summer.
    When the granddaughter gets married in June I'll decorate styrofoam trees with white flowers to decorate the table. They will open their presents at my house the day after the wedding.

  8. So cute! I don't really decorate for Easter beyond getting a few plants to make the house smell like Spring.

  9. Those are adorable projects!

    I used to make decorations for Easter every year, but with the kids grown and out of the house, I don't really do much any more.
