  1. I love this idea! I am currently in a no decorations phase. My 19 month old son is very good at taking things down and then either hiding or breaking said things. Although wooden eggs might not be a bad idea 🙂 Just yesterday I had to take a couple pictures off the wall that he could now climb up on the back of the couch and get. I think I took for granted how chill my oldest was at his age…

      • The eggs are wooden?! I would never have guessed. When you said craft eggs, I assumed they were plastic or something. At any rate, I’m so glad to not be the only one with children who are capable of inhuman destruction! Between our cats and our small children, we don’t decorate either.

  2. Dear Melissa, I love the ideas you’ve presented on decorating with eggs!! It’s got me thinking to playing around with some egg decoration myself…tho I haven’t done something like this in very many years!!!!

  3. I got the most realistic bird’s nest filled with beautiful speckled eggs and a few random feathers tucked into the sides … for like $1.99 at the local Christmas Tree Shop a few years ago. I love it so much that it stays out year round at my counseling office.

  4. I love that repurposed ladder that you have in the corner. The weathered/ancient look always catches my eye, and it looks gorgeous!

  5. My idea of making things fresh & new is scented candles. We use them in various room upstairs. Other than that we don’t decorate much–hubby is not a fan of “stuff” on walls, & in the house. I’m not the crafty, decorating type of person. Less is more is our motto!

  6. Melissa, I just love your eggs. I instagrammed a real blue robin’s egg yesterday that my 10yos found in our back yard. It’s sitting in a little nest in our house; I’ll just have to remember to get rid of it before it smells! 🙁
