We used all the recommended ingredients. I figured even if it went badly, we could eat the ingredients later. We had a lot of salad left over. Our project. Really a labor of love. This is what our eggs were supposed to look like. NOT! Peyton Grace said when she looked at the cover again "They mock us!" I thought that was so funny. We had a great time doing the eggs. Did they look even remotely like theirs, not even a little. Sometimes the fun is just in the doing, not in the finished product.
We have our own live in Oompa Loompa. PG's school did a production of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". It was beautifully done. Their chorus teacher is nothing short of wonderful. Who knew little kids could sing so well. I am still getting orange face paint out of her ears.
Some of you remember my pitiful attempt at decorating/making paper mache eggs in 2010. I had a blast doing them this year. Actually bought the eggs from my fav. HobLob. and used "the Paint". It made them really textured. I then printed out free Victorian clip art and modgepodged them on. I have had a stash of my grandmothers lace and buttons for most of my life. I have decided to use it in very fun ways rather than just keep holding on to it. Hope you like the results. It was fun to see them develop.
Sone of ya'll might recognize some of this furniture from when we had the store Calico Junction. We hearted everything in those days, didn't we. Even an inexpensive chandelier gets an upgrade. Cute little shades are still on the drawing board.
