Gorgeous, love the silver mesh dome and the spoons. Your eggs are beautiful, sweet dusting of silver sparkle.
How are you doing with all your time at home? I am getting my passport, just in case I can fly down for tea!
I am eagerly waiting to hear what you have been up to!!!!!

Hi Laura,
I love that mica egg! It is so lovely.
I also love your old utensils stamped with sayings. Did you do those yourself? Is it easy? I have been thinking about buying a stamping tool and stamps that I could use for my line of jewelry. I love the look of it!
Have a great week!
Sincerely,
Melinda

These are all so beautiful!! I love the eggs and wire cloches. Also, Starla...the blue fabric with pink roses behind her caught my eye. I sold some of that very same fabric several years ago on ebay! Have a lovely Monday!

Dear Laura,
I have to give Starla the prize for best in post !! She's beautiful.
Lovely Easter photographs and I just love those hammered names on the silver cutlery. ... and the silver mica is such a pretty plant. It reminds me of eucalyptus with very small leaves. Really pretty, Laura. XXXX

I love this blog!

Ange said...

Hmm - and I may just have to make myself an egg like that. Splendide! I'm into hearts at the moment - must be because Mother's day is on its way in Aussie. Maybe my Maman would prefer an egg after all!

EnchantedBella said...

You have such wonderful treasures. The pictures have such a secret garden feel to them. I love it. Makes me want to find a secret garden and fill it with wonderful silvery eggs. Very beautiful thank you.
