{Hand Made Easter Egg Gift by Friend Ellie}


  • Since it is Holy Week, we are getting into the mood for Easter. 
  • Out come these three lovely Easter Eggs, hand made by dear, almost life-long Friend Ellie from my hometown, Horst in The Netherlands.
  • This very talented friend did a great job on some artfully created Easter Eggs. Have a look...


  • Had to display them on our silk brocade table cloth that husband Pieter did bring back from his trip to China with the People to People Citizen Ambassador Program

  • Don't you think this pale blue will bring SPRING to our area soon?

  1. Dear Mariette
    Those fabric covered eggs are exquisite - what a wonderful gift from Ellie!
    The little birds and flowers do add such a delightful touch of Spring too.
    Peter did very well choosing that fabric - it's very beautiful!
    Yes Holy Week is with us and our wonderful big feast of Easter on Sunday.
    Wishing you and Peter a very happy Easter dear Mariette.
    love and hugs from across the seas
