fun with egg cups

 I picked up these wee egg cups a few months ago with the intention of doodling on them. Thank goodness I found where I stashed them! When I was a little girl, every Easter, we decorated hollow eggs. My mother had a collection of ladies in pretty hats and oh how I adored them. Sadly, none of the ladies remain but I made up my own version using a wee bottle cap and vintage earrings. 
For my half-faces, I simply doodled with your good old sharpie pen. The felt bow-tie was glued on with e-6000 so these little pretties are not exactly washable. 
They do however make for a quirky egg display. 
Dig his bottle-cap hat?
