~Watercolor Inspiration and Simple & Sweet Fridays #107~

I was saving egg shells for a project for Easter.
I needed some inspiration and remembered I received some Smith & Hawkins ornaments as a gift from a friend for Christmas.
They all were so cute but,
 were badly in need of some color.
The egg shells were in need of a color makeover as well.
Why not, 
paint them with some watercolors.
I love painting with watercolors.
I'm sure it all has to do
 with learning it in Elementary School.
A little color to the ornaments gave them new life!
I had saved some egg shells as well and had fun painting them too! 

I added some green moss.
A cute way to display some watercolor for Spring!

I had to share with you,
 I found the most adorable crocheted eggs at 
Pier 1 Imports yesterday.
Love the crochet around the eggs!!

What cute ideas have you been working on this week.
Easter is right around the corner!

  27. I love your Easter project, especially the egg shells... I wonder if I could find some. As for moss, there's plenty of it in the garden after the rainiest winter of history here!

  28. Jody, I love your water colored eggs and ornaments! The chenille looking eggs are precious. Just so happens I have a $10 rewards coupon for Pier 1. Planned on going there Tuesday. Thanks for hosting.

  29. Hi, Linda. I'm sooooo featured my Spring-ier China Cabinet, and I am just now responding. I'm more sorry than I am embarrassed...last week was a blurr, and I think I didn't get to bloghop/post my next post on Friday, so I wasn't here! Thank you so much for featuring my china cabinet! It means so much to me to be featured. Thank you.

  30. This is just a comedy of errors--or something! As soon as I hit Published I realized I'd written Linda, because I'd been reading your posts about your party for your friend and I thought it was so kind to say how pretty she looked (she did!). I KNOW you're not Linda!!! I KNOW you're Jody!! OMG... :(
