Another altered egg

I've also altered and decorated another type of paper maché egg. The bunny is made out of a paper napkin, pasted on cardboard and cutted out. The little flag is bilingual ;-)

Beautiful Carol. I think I’ve said this before, I love how our European neighbours celebrate Easter with such lovely decorations, They do it with far more style and creativity than us Brits’ do.
Last year I made a wreath of daffodils entwined with greenery that I hung on our front door, it did look pretty. I would like to have another go this year, if arm permits. Marion

Wonderful Carol. I've never connected a kangaroo with an egg - but s/he looks quite at home.

Joanna said...

I love the rabbit sitting in the middle of the egg. Its lovely.

Carol said...

Thank you ladies for your enjoyable comments!

Oh Ulla now you are exaggerating, but I'm happy that you find them enchanting and wonderful :D

Welcome to my blog cookie and Miss Eagle - I think you are taking the mick lol are you seriously thinking my rabbit looks like a kangaroo?

LOL Corey I was thinking about why I was serving eggs, until I got it that you meant it becuase of the glassbowls.

Oh Marion, just give it a go with the Easter decoration, I really hope that your arm/neck heals quickly now!

Miss Eagle said...

I'm sorry Carol. I wasn't taking the mick. I'm all embarrassed now and red in the face. OOh-wah! I hope I didn't offend. The only thing I can say in my defence is that I have seen more kangaroos than I have rabbits! BTW, do you know that in Australia we have the Easter Bielby. A lot of people got sick of the Easter Bunny and wanted to have a native animal and so they settled on the Bielby - so it is possible to get the Easter Bielby in chocolate nowadays.

Carol said...

Nah don't worry, you didn't offend me Mr. Eagle, I found it rather funny because you are from the Kangaroo continent!

Nope I've never heard about a Bielby, but now I'm inrigued! I'll go and google it.

Carol said...

Oops sorry, I've meant to say Mrs. Eagle of course!

Carol - the correct spelling is Bilby :)

Australian chocolate manufacturer and retailer Darrell Lea has been making chocolate Easter bilbies since 1994.

In the past two years, Darrell Lea has donated more than $70,000 from the sale of chocolate bilbies to the Save the Bilby Fund. In fact in 2003, bilbies outsold bunnies by eight to one! Only Darrell Lea bilbies help save the bilby.
