I'm Getting Egg-centric!

Yep, I'm still playing with eggs!  What do I plan on doing with all of them?  (*Shrugging my shoulders*) Beats me!  I'll probably put this nest in our shop.  If you want to make a similar nest, this is just a little grapevine wreath that I spray-misted white.  I added a bottom by cutting a piece of felt to fit the wreath and just glued it on.  The paper is shredded leftover wallpaper.  The eggs are plastic that I spray painted, then handpainted.  Three eggs are large, two are small.  The small two have beads in the middle of the flowers.  All of them were finished with a glitter shower.
It's been raining the last two days here.  It did wait a couple of hours today before it started, and I was able to geta few minutes of  leaf and weed raking/pulling in.  I pulled this picture of our angel out of my files to remind me that yes, it is all worth it.  (She stands in the middle of my largest flower garden)
And, I just finished these mixed media hang tags.  I decided to make a set of five and call them "Spring Fever", as it seems that there is a lot of this contagious disease going around.
Mama bunny here is my favorite in this group.  
Just wanted you to know what has been going on in my little corner of the world.  What have you been up to in yours?

Well the side effects of spring fever sure turned out great for you! The tags are gorgeous but I'm a pushover for the eggs. I have decorative eggs out year round. There's sumthin' about them that calls to me, go figure.
