EGGstra Crafty Rainy Day

Hey Y'all!
I hope you have had a great week. If you live around here, I hope you're doing something productive today since it's RAINING AGAIN for the 4th day in a dadgum row!
Oh well--gives us a chance to be lazy and get something done inside, right?
Lil R is sleeping so good right now--him and Lulabelle are piled up in our bed and life is good!
A year or so ago, I bought four plain wooden eggs at a thrift shop thinking I'd make something out of them. You know the kind, right? Just like these:
So today I'm in a bit of a crafty mood, so I got some old cotton lace and some paper roses and my glue gun.
Here's what I came up with:

And just in case you missed the big picture at the beginning of the blog, here are all four in an old wooden thingy that I also purchased at a thrift store:
I also ordered a BUNCH of giant paper clips. I thought they'd make great bookmarks. Here's what I did with those:
Now I know you just LOVE these. I am planning on opening my Etsy shop again really really soon. You can go on there and order just whatever you'd like...except for the eggs of course...sorry.
They're staying here, on my antique little Hoosier cabinet, perched up in their little wooden box, for all to see!
Here are some other pictures of the kitchen all dolled up for Easter here at The Doublewide.
Please ignore the redneck keg grill and our trash can outside. Aren't those little chenille chicks just adorable?

My two long-legged rabbits and Bertha look so cute up against my cookbooks. Lil R broke the ear off of her husband, Bert, so he had to go to the basket and wait on some super glue surgery.
I got this cheeseball dish at our auction at church this past week for $1.00! I found the handpainted ceramic eggs at a thrift shop last year for 25 cents a piece! I have some green spanish moss around here somewhere. I'll put it in there too, but wasn't this a cute idea?
A friend of mine that goes to our church is a huge antique collector. For Christmas he gave me a box of old kitchen items. My favorite is this old dough bowl lined with vintage doilies and plastic Easter eggs that I've had for several years! See that cute little bunny? One of my students gave her to me for Easter about 10 years ago. Something seasonal always finds a place in it every month!
Well, I guess that's it for now. I am off to crawl in the bed with Lil R and grab a quick nap while he's still sleeping!
Be blessed today!

I had to delete my first comment because it did not sound right!!

So anyway, you are so talented!! I have difficulty sewing a button on so you know I can't handle a glue gun!!
