Easter @ Mom’s- Paper Mache Eggs

I am so jealous that my Mom beat me when it came to making these paper mache eggs!  I wish she lived closer so we could get together and make more things, more often.  These eggs came out so classic looking; exactly how I imagined them.  They are displayed on candle sticks that sit on the dining room table.  Of course, I have purchased some paper mache eggs from HL but I can’t seem to get them done.  Way too many things on the crafty to do list!


Check out a few more things that are at my parent’s house.  I need a house the size of theirs!
I love the way this apothecary jar looks with the blue eggs!

The table  ALWAYS has a four person place setting set.  Mom has a million dinner plates, chargers, napkins, place mats and etc.   She is really good at mixing and matching all of the pieces together.  (You're probably wondering how we eat at the table with all the "decorative dishes"? We place a paper plate on top of the “place setting” dishes! LOL)

This particular bird will forever remind me of home.  Mom has had a collection of birds since before they were “cool” and popular.  Under the cloche with a nest, the bird looks more fabulous and luxurious than ever.
