A CLUTCH OF INSPIRATION

It's certainly still heavy coat season in the northeast, but before we know it, crocus flowers will be poking up through the ground, forsythia flower buds will be plumping up, springtime props will accent our abodes........and eggs will be laid.  Yes, they will be laid atop mantles, in hutches, under cloches, within tabletop centerpieces, and will magically find their way into the most curious of places in our homes.

Today I thought I'd lay a little visual clutch of inspiration for you in the hopes that it may hatch a few ideas in your head.

Who says that you can't clutch eggs in a chum pot?  Oh, yes you can.....

Clutch them in deep fryer baskets.......

and in coffee pots.......

Stash them inside tomato mashers and cigar boxes..........

and nestle them within your favorite fashion accessory, too.

Trust me, no one will cackle at you.

Besides, mama always said to never put all of your eggs in one basket.  She was right.

  2. Linda, I just looove all of these cool vintage holders you used to display the eggs! What a wonderful way to add some Farmhouse and spring style :) Thank you so much for linking this up to the Bewitchin' Projects Block Party last week. You are one of my featured picks over at Recreated Designs tomorrow and will be featured on my facebook page on Monday. Hugs, Lisa

  3. Why do we always think "basket" for eggs, when there's so many other creative ways to display. Love the cigar box and coffee pot, but they're all cute ideas!

    1. Thanks, Amy. I suppose one can never go wrong with the classic basket; however, I don't own any! LOL
