I have a lot of eggs. I always get asked about my different “stashes”, so I’m going to start showing them to you as I talk about them. I store most of my eggs in large baggies placed in a tote labeled Spring.

As soon as the weather starts warming up the eggs come out.

The nests too, of course.

I can’t think of Spring without thinking of eggs and nests.

Partially because we have 3 real nests on our house at this moment and I hear the birds all day long. 

But also because they represent a new beginning (and I know warmer weather is right around the corner).

You can tuck them in anywhere.

A bowl full of colorful eggs.

Or a couple eggs at the base of a topiary.

I love these little robin eggs inside a grinder.

Or in a pretty glass candy dish.

They look perfect piled high in apothecary jars.

I did a little trimming on our trees yesterday and brought a branch in. I filled a vase with small rocks to hold the branch in place then hung the eggs on the branches.

I still have about 6 dozen plastic eggs. Hmmm, I wonder what I could do with them! How do you decorate for Spring and Easter?

Those speckled eggs are precious! The blues in that nest makes me want to go raid a bird nest!
