Mixed Media Art and Birds

I just love the look of mixed media art. Just so creative and different and looks so vintage.
These works of art are made with layers of paint, resin, and stain. Here are some images that I just love from a new artist. Since I just love birds, I thought I would share with you some of these great images.

Any questions, please feel free to send me an e-mail at

Rice Krispie Easter Eggs

When I saw this commercial on TV, I thought this is much better than dying eggs and much tastier. I think rice krispie treats are my long time favorite. So here is the recipe and directions. Enjoy!
Prep Time: 20 minutes • Total Time:40 minutes • Servings:18
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies®
Canned frosting or decorating gel
Assorted candies, nuts, etc.
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. 2. Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.3. Using 1/3-cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray divide warm cereal mixture into portions. Using buttered hands shape each portion into egg shape. Cool. Decorate with frosting and/or candies. Best if served the same day.

Big Beautiful Jars

We just got these great big jars in. Perfect for a display of floral.
We used them down the middle of our long dining table. I think they would look beautiful
with just one big flower in them. What would you do with them, any great ideas?
