Sheet Music Goose Egg

Hi Friends~
Is it spring yet??
By the end of the week
our calendars will number the first day of spring.
But will the thermometers  read warmer temps?
I sure hope so.
I know we are all ready, Right??
 
******
 
In the meantime,
Easter is about a month away and later in the season this year.
I like when Easter is in April giving way for more
creative time and warmer days.
 
My studio is buzzing with spring fun and recently I found a
paper mache goose egg to design.
This style does not open. I wish it did.
 
It is a large 7" wide and 6" tall oval egg.
I was so excited to start on this piece, I forgot to get a before pic.
But I covered the entire egg with sheet music and glitter.
Then added trims of vintage lace, tulle, pearls, rose buds, ribbons, little gems,
painted leaves and added a sweet removable wooden Easter tag.
 
All the trims are in shades of ivory, white and tan
with vintage crocheted lace.
 
 
I painted silk leaves ivory.

 
Sheet music with lots of glitter.

 
The tag is a sweet Easter Graphic from
and removable after Easter.
I created the tag from wood and painted it old white
with glitter on the flowers.
 
 
These round eggs stand best in a nest of Spanish moss or Easter grass.
Here I have set the egg in moss on a candle stand.
 
This spring decoration will soon be on the shelves in my etsy shoppe.
 
 
I had fun working with this one  but I would love to find a large egg
that opens to fill with treats or a little gift.
This goose egg however makes a sweet centerpiece.
 
That's all for today friends.
My brushes are calling from the studio
and I better get back to my work  fun!!
 
Joining,
 
Until next time,
Southern DayDreams!
 
Celestina Marie
Happy Spring!!

Your egg is just gorgeous, Celestina! I love all of the pretty lace and beautiful flowers that you've added! And the tag is just adorable, what a great idea! Even better that you can remove it if you want! We are ready for spring here, too, not sure when it will actually arrive though:)

You are so creative and talented. Such a beautiful egg. As a former church pianist, I love that you used sheet music. This would also be nice displayed on a small cake stand.

Celestina,
The music sheet egg is just beautiful. I noticed you changed your blog name to Southern Day Dreams? I love that name, it's so charming. I will have to change it on my side bar.

Have a sweet day. It's almost spring!

I admire your inspiration Celeste. You are always so motivated and your work is just beautiful. It conjures up memories for me of Easter mornings and eggs filled with jelly beans and chocolates. You are so gifted.

You should link up to Vee's note card party. Each one of these images would be gorgeous note cards.
