embroidered eggs

Ukranian artist Forostyuk Inna stitched up these goose eggs, but the funny thing is that no one on the Internet seems to know just how it was done. (The commenters on Sublime Stitching have some great theories, though.) I don’t know that I’ll be attempting this method, but the intricate and colorful work does make me want to step up my Easter egg game a bit.

What’s your favorite egg-decorating technique? Or are there any that you’re thinking of trying for the first time?

Glue Moss to Letter

Preheat hot glue gun. Once hot, apply glue to chipboard letter in small sections (Image 1). Immediately press moss into hot glue and hold in place until glue cools (Image 2). Repeat until the entire surface of letter is covered, including sides (Image 3). Tip: Don't insert moss inside holes for letters like "A" or "R."

    Spring, Easter and beautiful weather

    Dear Friends:

    Great blue skies, warm temperatures, and Easter.
    You cann't ask for a better week.
    I designed some new knobs, here are some from my shop.  The first one is about Bermuda, I found this
    beautiful vintage map, the colors are great and vibrant. I chose Hamilton and the shoreline for the sides of the knob.  I still have lots of places left. Its so nice because this is not a copy but the real thing.
    This particular knob is sold but I can make others if you like.

    The other one is our famous "lucky number", in yellow, these knobs are very popular because we all
    have our lucky dates, house numbers, wedding date,engagements, birthdates, and just lucky number.

    I love how the light makes the knob pop.  I placed it in my beautiful pansies pot.  These are last years
    flowers, they are great.  I love the purple color with the yellow lucky 827.  These knob is sold, but
    I can make you another one, and if you follow my blog, you get a 15% discount. just go to my shop
    and convo me what your lucky number is and you will enjoy beautiful custom made one of a kind
    knobs for your furniture, doors, bathrooms, shops, etc.

    Have a great spring day,

    love you all

    Flea Market Finds by Matthew Mead

    A great book with lots of ideas, enjoy the inspiration.

    “I have always collected vintage gilded items. There is a warmth and glimmer about accessories with a touch of gold that make an interior feel a bit more sophisticated and special. In my new book Flea Market Finds we celebrate classical decorating with a story titled “Greek Revival” which highlights items that have been embellished with gold to feel like relics of the past.

    An easy way to “get the look” is to find simple but detailed shapes at the flea market and revive them with gold leaf paint. I gather a mix of hues at the crafts store and then go about adding age and patina to flea market cast offs.

    Easter is coming and I always think of “the golden egg” so why not add some gilding to the dining table by gilding a classically shaped urn. We found two sizes of urns at a floral supply and then used several paints in a process that creates an aged, vintage patina.

    Cover your work surface with craft paper and work by an open window to reduce the odor from the metallic paints.
    There are many types of gold leaf and gilding paints at the crafts store… among my favorites are Liquid Leaf and Rub ‘n Buff. I begin by lightly brushing each of the pieces with Liquid Leaf.

    I apply it in sparing amounts with a foam brush and allow it to dry between coats. Apply two coats and let it dry fully between applications (about ½ hour for each). Once fully dry I apply a layer of Rub ‘n Buff and work the paint into the surface of the urn with a soft rag, allowing it to dry for at least one hour.

    Lastly, I use metallic pigments in multiple shades to rub over the finish to create depth and highlight the details of the urn.

    The small urn makes a perfect perch for a hard boiled egg embellished with a letter sticker. Simply fill the urn with natural excelsior and top with the egg. Add flower blossoms like apple or cherry for a final flourish.
    This is a great book, go to to order yours today,
