As much as I love hanging eggs on my påskris, there are a few special eggs I would like to keep safely on the ground.
Unfortunately for moi, my regular ceramic egg cups went missing in the move, so I improvised with plastic eggs. I always keep lots of them laying around as cat toys for Lola – she swats them around and hides them laundry baskets. It's practically a year round egg hunt up in here.
Plastic eggs come in packets of nine at the local dollars store (hence the title, Twelve Cent Fancy Eggs), although, I imagine you can find plastic eggs just about anywhere right now. Even the corner gas station is selling marshmallow Peeps this week. Do people really enjoy eating Peeps while driving? This sounds dangerous.
Had I thought about this in advance, I would have bought a packet of those nifty glitter glue sticks and worked in a few sequins. Maybe some rhinestones. Or gold lame. You know, tasteful stuff.
In a similar vein: Egg Tuffets, anyone? Or what about these amazing pink and gold egg carton cups? (I know, she had me at "pink and gold")
I love these DIY Jonathan Adler-esque vases embellished with puff paint. Hot glue would certainly work too. Get in my house!
