Oh for Spring and Eggs Anyone!!!

Boy we have had some up and down weather here in southeast Wisconsin. First it is in the high 60's and then snow the next day and then a couple days in the 50's and then back down....
but it will be here soon so I guess we just wait it out.
I have been up to my elbows in eggs the
past 2 weeks and finally at the end!
I posted on my FB page that I was making Redware and Yellowware eggs as well as grungy eggs and I had orders before I even posted pictures - I have such a wonderful following of great customers and friends...THANK YOU ALL OF YOU!!!
It was a fun task and in the end I made
17 dozen eggs - sold them in sets of 6.

The painting process was the longest because I gave them a thin base coat and then 2 top coats before painting on the designs.
I kept the designs simple as I am not an artist!!

I was having a hard time keeping the eggs from getting carton marks and finger marks so I found my candle cups from years back and they came in handy to hold the eggs while they dried.
It pays to not throw things away!
Then it was time to pack and ship...

And then came the second round - I thought
I was finished and then came more orders.

I still have some that can be shipped so if you are interested you can find them here:

I haven't been doing any Spring decorating yet but hopefully this week I can bring up some lighter looking decor 
and put away the darker heavier things.
Have any of you started yours yet?

I am so excited to finally go to another Hook-In....
and it's close to me.
I went to one a few years back down in Virginia and enjoyed it so much.  I don't know why I didn't know about this one so close to me but you can bet I will be going every year now.

So if you are in the area check it out - maybe you would like to go.
It's just for a day so rather nice that you don't need to stay in a hotel.
A friend, Kathleene Woodbury, and I are going
together so it should be lots of fun. 

It is April 27th and will be at the
Tommy Thompson Youth Center, State Fair Park

I don't have much more to add to my post this week but hopefully
I can find something interesting for next week.

Have a wonderful week and thank you again for
supporting my efforts in blogging!


  1. You are one busy lady up to your elbows in eggs! They are beautiful!
    I haven't done any Spring decorating it's been so cold here and with snow everywhere it doesn't even feel like Spring. I will have to get to it this week. I'm tired of seeing the heavy things too.
    Enjoy your day of hooking.

  2. Your eggs are just wonderful! Have fun at the hook in. Wish I could find one close to me here in Michigan. Janice

  3. These look wonderful! I tried my hand at the redware eggs as well. It was challenging trying to get them even with the paint with no marks on them. They turned out not too bad! Looking forward to Spring! Enjoy your week!

  4. Those eggs are beautiful!! You are so talented. I have pulled out one rabbit to sit on my diningroom table. That's it for this year!! :-)))

  5. Love love those eggs, Karen.. You are just so talented and energetic.. Luv ya.. xo

  6. I just received my order of yellow eggs and they are wonderful!! Perfect in my wooden bowl with my bunny and prim carrots for Easter. Thank-you Karen for making these and offering them to all of us!

  7. Those eggs are awesome! Your hook-in sounds fun!
    Have a great week!
