better late than never...

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a tour of Maureen's house. Your comments were so nice. I know Maureen loved having you and wants us to come back soon to see her new living room set. Her sister-in-law has also invited us to tour her lake house which I will bring you on soon. I know you won't want to miss it! I have been busy making a few things to feather my little corner at the shop. I bought some simple plain white boxes at Michaels and thanks to Karen at The Graphics Fairy they had a little makeover... I had the best intentions to get these done before Easter but am hoping that people will think spring decorating. I love the colors of the eggs on the top as well as the lovely script around the edges... I also added some of my favorite scrapbooking paper...blue roses on an aged background. The top of this box has a great bird image... I also had good intentions to decoupage some eggs before Easter too. I used some french inspired graphics for this dozen... My favorite box with my favorite egg... I know you have all probably seen these ideas before but I had so much fun making them and as we all know, thanks to Karen, the possibilities are endless. So my new little line of decoupaged items for the shop... Have finally made their way to their new nesting spot in my little corner. Better late than never... I am joining in on the fun at a few places this morning ~ The Graphics Fairy for Brag Monday, Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday, and for the first time ~ Cottage Instincts for Make it for Monday. I want to thank you all again for coming by to visit my little blog and taking time to leave a comment. You have all been so kind, encouraging and inspiring. I can not believe that I almost have 100 followers! I better get ready for my first giveaway!!

Lovely! You have done a fantabulous job with all your decoupaged eggs. I think for some they are year round decorations. I still have all my eggs sitting as I only decoupaged a few so far. So many wonderful things here - no wonder you are moving and grooving! Best wishes always, Tammy

I think you've got the right idea here... it's all in the 'spring' category in my book! The boxes are darling but those eggs... oh I LOVE them! I wish I'd made some of those for Easter but maybe I'll just have to make some instead for my 'spring' display just like you did!

Nancy said...

Oh, so pretty! Those boxes are very neat. You have such a sweet blog...so glad I stopped by!

Thanks for visiting me. I adore your decoupage eggs. What a unique idea!
I also enjoyed the tour of Maureen's bedroom.
There's nothing quite like a visit to a neat home.

Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Love your pretties you used from the Graphics Fairy. Isn't her site the best?!

Pam said...

Hi Sandi, Sweet, Sweet Boxes...love them! You'll probably have to keep making more of those for Easter/Spring 2011 at The Shop as I don't see why they won't be flying out the door. See you Saturday...Have a nice day, Pam
