And so goes January...

Hello All,
  Here it is almost the end of January. I'm hoping we are on the back side of winter. My organizing for the month is not going well.  I have always been a great list maker. I am planning on having lots of activity on my to do list this last week of  January. As I watch it snow and blow I found this quote:

        “Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.” – Victor Hugo

   Hope everyone finds that laughter this week! Have a great week! Pat

Why is January the longest month of the year?

Hello All,
   January is here again. It always seem to me to be the longest month of the year. Winter seems to drag and my mind seems to turn to spring, even if it is a ways off. We've started our eggs for the year. I love egg season! There is something about painting eggs that makes me happy!
   I'm also thinking about the January clean-up! It is the month to organize in my mind. Anyone for cleaning closets and getting into spring cleaning?
   Have a great day! Will post pictures of some new eggs soon!
 Happy January!

Oh Goodness...

We are awful, awful, awful at updating this blog. Life gets busy...and we never seem to get back to here. Its been almost 10 months since our last update and multiple big live things have happened. We've had a wedding in the family and two new college graduates entering the real world. Wowza! 

We are starting to make our beautiful eggs for the year! Shoot us an email, or check out our etsy for more information :)

It is getting to be the that time of the year when I start thinking about robins, tulips, and of course Easter Eggs. I have always loved Easter Eggs. Even if we have had a really gentle winter, I'm ready for spring. We have had a good sart to the egg sales, so we are setting up the other ways to order the eggs early so we can help more familys enjoy the season. I will be back soon with more pictures of the season!

Want to Order Some Eggs?

We are taking orders for ceramic Easter Eggs! Please send orders to!
Because of the massive requests we've had for eggs in the last couple years, we've decided to create a second system for ordering. You can order in THREE ways!

Please send your orders to

1) Customize Your Eggs- you can choose both the pattern and color of each eggs. You can also personalize them with names. You can order as many, or as few, as you would like!
Here are the patterns we have:
(From Left to Right) Scattered Daisies, Central Flower, Scattered Tulips

(From Left to Right) Vines, Tulip Lines, Dots

Along with six designs, we also have seven (7) colors to choose from! The colors shown above: purple, orange, blue, yellow, teal, pink. We also have a light green, which is shown the sets below.

Here's how an order would look:

Hello, I would like 6 eggs:

1 pink dots
1 teal tulip lines
1 yellow vines
1 blue scattered tulips
1 orange central flower
1 purple scattered daisies

With custom orders, you can also personalize them with names. Here's how an order would look:

Hello, I would like 6 eggs with the names:
Dave - green
Pat - purple
Ben - orange
Nicole - pink
Bill - blue
Charlie - yellow

Personalized eggs, we will add small decorations to make it look festive and pretty!

You can order a combination of names and patterns, just please be specific about your wants! Be sure to include the color to each egg as well.

2) Order a Set - Here are a few sets we have done in the past. If you want a more simple way of ordering, just choose 1 or more of the sets below. All sets consist of six (6) eggs; One of each color (expect for teal and green, there will be one or the other) and one of each pattern.

Here are the sets to order from:
SET 1 (below)



Here's how an order would look:

I would like to order set 2 and set 5.

3) Variety Set - Here's the easiest way to order! Let us do the work of picking the eggs for you! We will include one of each color and one of each pattern. Of course, since we have teal and green, we usually only put one in a set. Please specify if you would prefer one or the other. Then wait for your surprise!

Here's how an order would look:

I would like a variety of 2 dozen eggs!

Fall is coming!

Hello All,
We have been busy creating items for the season. What is your favorite part of fall? Halloween, autumn or thanksgiving. I love them all. We just listed a set of fun loving ghosts to etsy.  I love painting with the fall colors, they are my natural color pallet. As Nicole would say, they are Mom colors. I have a few more Halloween and fall items up my costume sleeve, so stop back and see us again.
