Easter Eggs the Junkin Way!

I found instructions for natural dye on the web and just wanted to add a bit of color to my hard boiled eggs. Then added lace string ric rac and various junkin supplies and embellished them.
(It may look like tea in the cup but it is the dye I used)

A cameo fit just perfectly on the egg that had a oval on it from sitting in the dye. An earring and scrapbook embellishment key! Other things used were buttons and flowers, endless possibilities also wood or other eggs could be used.

Still have time to do some fun eggs for Easter!

Old Purse with Old Photo

This is my own spin on a post I found on pintrest.

The one on pinterest had many purses on a wall with baby's breath in the purse.
I had this purse for years and have used it for holding Christmas cards and hung it on a doorknob.
The lace frame I got at a yard sale for a dollar, this has been in the living room since I bought it just sitting or hanging around.

 I bought a couple of frames recently at a thrift store sale for this project but I went to my stash of frames and found this one I liked better. Added a vintage photo, also from my stash. the frame is velcroed on so I can take it off and change the pic, added a hankie from my collection and a key.

I started to take the pics for the blog and decided I needed to add something below the purse, looked around the room and found a cardboard clock face and just added a doughnut of tape to the back and tada!

Quick and oh so easy!
