The Other Half Of The Egg..

Hello  my dear friends,

after making my 'Easter Bloom' creation I was left with the 'other half' of the egg and not knowing what to do with it ~ that was until yesterday morning. I was busy gluing more of the larger egg halves onto metal stemware when it came to my mind what I was going to do with one of the smaller halves of the eggs.

I gave the egg half the same crackle finish as my first just a little softer. I wanted a different color and I also found a neat 'egg painting stand' in  the shape of a old candle holder and instead of buying a new color of paint, I mixed my own and I love the shade I am up with. It is meant be a shade of duck egg blue.

Since Spring is finally rolling in and with Easter in the back of my mind again this is what I came up with for the other half of the egg  ...

...my 'Vintage Other Half'' Nest.



Again I feel this egg has a little Victorian feel to it which I love so much.

I am already thinking of an idea for another egg creation and can't wait to start working on it.
It really seems since the sun is shining more often and the sky is more blue than gray these days my creative streak is slowly returning which makes me so happy.

Wishing you that your days are filled with blue skies and sunshine.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
