My victorian vintage egg....

SO CLOSE WITH MY 250 FOLLOWERS GIVEAWAY....THANK YOU EVERYONE...RIGHT SIDEBAR TAKES YOU TO THE POST...PASS IT ON IF YOU WOULD LIKE.... The Altered having a vintage egg challenge. So here is my take...
I started with a green plastic egg....and then grabbed some samples that I had of lace...started cutting that in squares...hmmmmm...I wondered how do I attach this...then I grabbed the modge podge...Yeppers it was a sticky mess... Dryed it of course...then inked it with Tim Holtz tea ink pad. is looking alright. I have these wonderful hat pins from my mom that are antique...stuck it right in the egg with some lace that I inked as well and some pretty gold ribbon. I grabbed a flower crochet that my sister in law Kathy had made a while back...added some stickles and an antique button. I think it turned out okay...
Then last night I was in bed not feeling well...yepper the cold is getting worse instead of better. bummer... I used my antique clothespins and wrapped my thrifty ribbon around them and stuck in my pins I decorated. Looks pretty in the bowl with my egg and added a doily. Let me know what you think.
Going to get some rest now....Sorry if I haven't blogged as much lately...this cold is taking alot out of me....though I keep going like the energizer bunny rabbit.
Smiles...and blessings to you all.
Also displaying over at Tinker planet again...
Also entering in Paper issues challenge...favorite things.
Well most of you know that my favorite things are usually vintage(antique) items such as the buttons,stick pin,clothespin and also the vintage lace in this creation...
Don't forget that I love to recycle which is the plastic egg from Easter stash.
