Retro Mama

Easter, Easter, Easter.........maybe if I keep posting darling ways to decorate for Easter........it will magically happen in my house.
Retro Mama has some really cool fabric eggs she did.........I was instantly attracted to them because of the color choices.........because come on.......who am I kidding? We all know the great tutorial she has for these beauties is not going to help me.
She also makes cute pears! I have such a pear obsession.........but not even my obsession would get me to try my hand at making them. But look at them.......aren't they beautiful?

Sweet Mother of Pearl.......would you just look at that pear? Her photos couldn't be any better.

She's very talented with the needle.......I don't remember what this is called, but it's not embroidering....she was excited to get this kit in the mail........it's beautiful........but looks like torture to me. Remember, I don't want to do anything longer than 3 hours, except maybe shop.......well and scrapbook.She then took her little master piece and made a purse. This woman is so so talented. I am amazed daily by the talent out there. I am. I love how this thing called the Internet has created a vehicle for woman to use their talent to do what they love.......earn a bit of $$ while they raise their children. Amazing. This busy mama created something I have never seen......what a great idea. She decorated the back side of her cube shelves. Great great idea.Don't forget to visit and leave her a little TCB nudge.......let her know how fun her blog is. You'll love her banner.

Happy Friday.......couples bunco tonight........I better win!

Oh my, this is perfect for the little seamstress in me. I needed something to kick me in gear!

Oops. Blogger ate the first part of my comment. I said that I LOVE those pears. That kind of embroidery is called Crewel, I think. So, yes, it's like torture.

Dumb blogger.

Hello, I am an avid reader of your blog. I came across another blog with an adorable project that I think warrants a mention on yours. This woman makes the most adorable 1 inch wire bird's nests using beads as the eggs. If you are interesting in seeing this adorable and incredibly easy craft, you can find her blog and project at:
http://justsomethingimade.blogspot.com/2009/03/little-wire-bird-nests.html These little nests would make adorable pins for easter and/or spring. I made two in just a couple of minutes and placed them on a table decorated for spring. I am completely enamoured of them. Please check them out. Robin, Crossville, TN

Pixeltrash said...

YOu love pears? ME TOO! I thought I was a strange one. Maybe because I'm shaped like one? LOL? I don't know what it is but I love pears, eggs, birds and hearts. Anyway, thanks for pointing me to her blog. I do sew, so maybe I'll give it a try!
