Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great week-end. We had the grand babies at  the beach this week-end. They were so much fun but I am whipped. Nothing like a toddler and a three year old to make you feel your age.

                                                I thought I would share some blues today.
I painted some little plastic eggs robins egg blue. The flat finish of the paint makes them look more realistic.  The cloche and rabbit were thrifting finds.

Next is my naked tree.

I bought the little tree years ago which makes it vintage, ancient. I found a terracotta pot and painted it pale blue and then filled it with a styrofoam plant block. I had some white Easter grass so it went on top.

All it needs is some little decorations. I'm sure I'll find something at the Dollar Tree or Michael's to do the trick.
Finally, I have shared before, my Cottage sign.

It was a scratched up pink and black princess sign at TJ Maxx .I loved the shape.  And since there are no princesses around here it needed a make over. 
Glad you dropped by and y'all come back!

I'm linking this post to the following meme's. Come join the fun!

  1. I'd love to know how you painted those eggs. One side at a time? I'd make such a mess!

    Happy Blue Monday, Annette.

  4. I love the eggs. You are right, they look real. Can't wait to see what the tree ends up looking like. Blessings!

  7. What a great blue! I love it on your pot! I'm sure you'll find something at the dollar store to add to it. We got a new one nearby that I need to go check out.

  8. Love what you did with the eggs!


  9. Hi Annette. It looks like you are well on your way to getting ready for Easter. I love your beach cottage sign.

  13. I love the blue colour, just the right shade.
    Please let us know what you are going to decorate that tree with, I'm sure it will be cute. Me too are running after a two year old and her little sister of tree months.
    At night I can't wait to plop my head on my pillow....

  14. Ooo...pretty subtle blues...and fun that you did them yourself. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. :)

  15. I noticed the color of your walls too; so pretty and serene--the blues and whites look lovely against it. Can't wait til you show that little tree decorated!

  16. Love that color blue! wonderful job on those eggs and that sign! Looking like Spring around your house. Thanks for joining JFF. hugs, Linda
