egg avalanche


It is that time of year again~ time for an egg avalanche!

Luckily, I have lots of ideas for what to do with eggs...and some of those ideas do not involve breakfast.

Vladka made me a very good tutorial...

and she also made this very beautiful doily shown beneath my practice egg..


I used an alabaster egg to practice on. It takes a bit of getting used to. Wire and beads on eggs. Takes a light touch, pulling the wire, setting the bead just where it wants to be, without cracking the shell.


The technique is perfect for using with my flax wicking pots. I tried a sample with linen and love the look of it.


There are so many eggs to practice with!

I never noticed how much the tulips look like the eggs, or are the eggs looking like the tulips?


Happy Easter!

Which came first? The tulip or the egg?? tee hee... What a neat thing to do. I will try it too. Happy Easter to you.

You have got egg avalanche and we have got an egg affair (or a hen affair? Who knows?) Anyway, I have got Easter without eggs this year. This is a little crazy. Fortunately, I have hidden at least the shell :-D

Happy Easter to you!

Love your very creative egg avalanche! I never put the shape of tulips and Easter eggs together. Nice job!

Happy Easter, Cyndy. What beautiful photo's for the post. With my history with broken glass, I won't be combining wire and beads with eggs. Not even hard boiled ones.

I suspect there's a quiche in your future. Or maybe some custard. Or both.
Beautiful photos, as usual!
