EGG-zactly What is My Problem?

Pin It!
Happy March!  We made it ... goodbye winter and *please* don't come back for a LONG time!

On a recent trip to Pottery Barn, I found the prettiest faux robin's eggs!  Because they were so reasonably priced, I bought a large bag of them, along with a bag of larger, cream eggs.  Then, when I hit Home Goods, I came upon a pack of three nests filled with various sized cream eggs, too!  I had to have them since a box of three was only $6.99!  I've enjoyed placing them all around the house; however, I think I've overdosed on them just a tad!  Come and see: 

We'll start in the kitchen ... my Home Goods cake stand and cloche house some of the robin's eggs, which I placed in a nest (from Michael's) and then rested all of that on shredded paper (click on pic to enlarge, if you'd like):


In the dining room, I threw one of the nests with eggs from Home Goods into my arrangement.  Why not(?), I say.


My son thinks these are dinosaur eggs!  LOL


Beside the arrangement, more robin's eggs landed on the silver candle holders.  The beautiful blue color reminds me of pieces of turquoise:


In the sitting room, a cream ceramic bowl (which I shared last week) has yet aNOTHER nest of robin's eggs surrounded by vintage book pages bound in twine, seashells and orbs. 


I like these eggs and nests so much, that I even grabbed a cream picture frame that I wasn't using ... removed the glass ... added a burlap backing and hot glued the eggs into the nest, which I then hot glued to the burlap.  I love the pop of blue.  Yes, I'm crazy ... go ahead and say it:


I also went ahead and threw the last three robin's eggs into a cocktail glass, which sits upon a beautiful cake platter (from PB) that my sweet friend, Hayley, recently gave me!


Over in the great room, I found two matching vases (from Tuesday Morning), in which I mixed real branches and faux flowers.  I then thought it'd be fun to place the larger eggs in the base of the vase, as well:


Unexpected, but fun (I think ... I hope):


Got a basket filled with greenery?  Why not throw a nest with a few eggs in there!


So, now I'm down to one egg-filled nest. I *think* I found the perfect place for it!  A bird corsage ... just what every girl has always wanted !!  LOL

Your new eggs and home look so spring-y. The weather has been so nice lately and we are all getting ready. Love, love the blue ones in the candles. Very nicely done.

Happy week! ~Melissa :)

I love the way you used the burlap and the eggs.. I love anything spring.. looks great..I am a new follower.. found you at WUW.. would love to have you stop by sometime.

Jemsmom said...

That is just perfect!!! All of it! Especially your corsage! It reminded me of high school when we would all get the ginormous mums with the school letters on them as a corsage! Perfect! I do love how you have them in very unexpected places and how they turn out so beautifully!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Ha! I love them, Becca! I saw eggs and nests in Home Goods on the weekend but I was shopping for a client so I restrained myself. I like the PB ones; the color is great. Sometimes it's hard to find a blue that isn't too blue. I'm feeling more like Spring will be here soon since most of our snow melted. We may even hit 50 today!

Greg said...

SOOOOOO cute and creative. I love all of your egg-straordinary ideas with eggs and nests. Sadly though I think that those poor little eggys will not see summer, you will be out with the eggs and into a new wonderful idea in a matter of weeks and I cannot wait to see.

KATHY said...

Everything looks so cute!! I bringing out all my eggs now too!!

Hi Becca, your displays are awesome. I have been looking for Robin's eggs for my little nest, it's for a photo I need to take. I hadn't thought of Pottery Barn, I would have thought they'd be too expensive there. Thank you for the tip, you did a wonderful job using them in your decor, xoxo tami

Terry said...

You are not alone. I went egg crazy too but just have not posted them yet.

Mandy @ Creekside Creations said...

I'm an egg lover too. It's just so fun to put them everywhere!

Love the framed nest! Very clever my friend. Don't you just love the things kids say?!?!
