My Top Ten Fav Picks from Masterpiece Monday #16

........and some more paper napkin decoupage eggs. To see my other paper napkin decoupage eggs, click here.

In case you're new to my blog, this my beloved metal fire place that I call "Old Rusty".
I decided to spruce up Old Rusty for Easter.
For these eggs, I just used cheapo plastic eggs from the dollar store.
I covered them with book pages and glossy modpodge and let them dry.
Then I cut some cute butterfly, flower and bird pictures from paper napkins.
I attached the napkin pieces with more modpodge and sealed them with a top coat as well.
I found some adorable little note cards with butterflies, which I also cut out and added as a 3D affect...
and I also slipped some note cards into this picture frame/caddy.
I stuffed the caddy part with my favorite shredded sheet music.

Next to Old Rusty, I added some baby chicks in a nest to the bird cage that usually sits there.
I also have a collection of Audubon bird pictures from tag sales.
So, I added some chicken wire to the back of my window frame and displayed some blue birds and blue jays.

The gladiolas were from Trader Joe's. I love the lime green one's!

I just wanted to say thank you for the nice comments on my last post and welcome to my new followers. You are all such a lovely group of bloggers. And now for the top picks!
