The sun has been shining and all the snow is melted in our area of the world (I think!). It rained over the past weekend and it was so refreshing. I love the smell of rain, especially the feeling of freshness that it brings. The good weather hasgiven me some motivation & I’ve been slowly changing up my décor around the home to give a more spring like feel to it. With that being said, I managed to dig out our box of Easter decorations.
As I was sifting through items I found some dye-able plastic Easter eggs that I had picked up at the Dollar Store last year. I always like to keep a couple of packs on hand just in case I ever need them! I’ve been decorating these eggs for a couple years now and they are so fun and versatile to use. Last year I took a sharpie to them and doodled away to my hearts content. This year I was a touch more in summer mode with them. To be totally honest, I’m on a flamingo kick right now. Flamingo’s on napkins, flamingo’s on towels, flamingo stationary. You name it, I want it!
Using a couple of shades of pink, as well as white & black, I painted some flamingo’s in different stances on a few of the eggs. You have no idea how nice it was to just sit and paint for a bit! I rarely take the time to break out the paint supplies anymore, but the sun was shining, the house was quiet and I needed a break from the never ending laundry pile.
We’re hosting Easter supper in a couple of weeks so these will be a fun addition to our tablescape.
She’s my fave!
Do you paint? I find it to be so soothing & therapeutic. Challenge yourself this week and pick up a paintbrush, you’ll be amazed at what you end up with!
