Springs have sprung


I really have a thing for rusty bed springs. They are just wonderful to display all kind of items and make great egg cups for 9” high paper mache Easter eggs :).

I had decoupaged and embellished the eggs some years ago but they got a little style update this year. My rusty motor parts that look like flower shapes, came in handy again.

Love those springs for the eggs. Such a great idea. I did some decoupaged eggs a few years ago. Just found one of them the other day that I did in a sheet music paper so brought it out from the cupboard. I should make more but would need to find the plastic eggs first. :) Have a great week. Tammy

Ahhh yes! I was waiting for a post like this from you dear Julchen and as always you did not let me down. Your embellished eggs look simply wonderful and yes the motor part flowers are giving them something so special, very beautiful! I absolutely love them and the look of them sitting on the bed springs! Can't wait to see what you share with us next. Wish I was as creative as you are, but so far I wasn't in the mood to create for Easter whatsoever which is quite strange for me. I decorated a bit and also put a big Silhouette paper maché egg on the big bed spring you sent me, but I'm more into the garden these days and my daughters new café (yes she finally found and rented a location and an appartement too). I think Easter is too late this year, I like it better at the end of March. Still I'm looking forward to our family get together on Easter Sunday in my in the countryside living sisters garden and the weather forecast is promising us 20°C for Sunday and Monday right now which would be perfect! Today it is rather cold here and raining as we speak, but everything is green and the daffodils and tulips and forget me nots and clematis montana are in bloom. The lilacs are just about to start blooming too and the roses have big buds already so have the alliums. I so love the garden in Spring :) Hope all is well with you, hubby and the furry babes. Sending you happy pre Easter wishes my friend! xoxo~ Carola

Hi sweet Julia
You have been busy again with redecorating your Easter eggs with paper, lace and rusty elements in the lacey flowers - they look amazing!

The rusty bed springs are just perfect for displaying them and I can see them boinging their way to the link parties!

Have a lovely Easter with Helmut and your fur babies - thinking of you with much love and many hugs,
Suzy

My dear Julia,
The kids are home again, and I try to follow up on my favorite blogs, like yours :-)
I simply love your decorated eggs, and also this year, the ones you gifted me, are on my table .Do you remember,-: One big one and two smaller, all so lovely, just as those you show here are. They are great on the springs!!
I hope your week will be fine, and happy, even it is colder now.
Happy belated Easter my dear sweet friend.
Love and hugs from Dorthe
