These were fun to make.  I jumped on the sheet music egg bandwagon.  These are all over blogland and probably in the Pottery Barn catalog by now LOL.

I took some wooden eggs, used mod podge to adhere the vintage sheet music.  I went thru my stash of bits, bobs, ribbons and trims and came out with this trio.

I LOVE this mini cloche.   The metal base was black, so I used trusty Heirloom White and I like it much better.  It's a small cloche.  So cute.  That egg is about the size of a real egg so you can see how small the cloche is.

I had fun posing this trio of eggs for pics.  LOL

Here's the cloche sitting on my fireplace mantle (sorry for the glare).

This is my favorite.  I had to get shells on one.  This is my sea themed egg.  I've entered it in Creations by Tee's Vintage Egg Challenge.  There is a button on my sidebar.  Go ahead, enter, it will be so much fun.  The challenge ends on 4/12 so you have plenty of time to be creative.

I chuckled when I saw these because I just made 3 of these myself. I need to embellish them now as I finished modge podging the sheet music on them last night.
Yours are just lovely!!
Lots of great ideas out here in Blogland, huh?

Hi Roselle, you're right, very similar.

Diane Mars said...

Roselle, I think you are right,I too am done with Holiday items on Etsy. The fact that so many people have no idea what Etsy is is a valid point... And I do know the economy is still bad, but there are some woman out there that do have money and plenty to spend. I see it all the time. Yes the Holiday goodies are going to only for boutiques, not Etsy. I really do appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. It has been very helpful in my future decisions. I will go over and check out your Shop, thanks again. oxox, Diane

the eggs are just too sweet. I love the shell eggs. I have a little cloche like yours but I didn't think about painting the base white. I'm going to do that tomorrow.
