Castle Quick Craft: Easter Egg Theatre

The latest issue of the Castle Crier is winging its way through the ether to our dear readers as we speak. It features quite a bit of news including the announcement that our Online Shoppe is now offering 30% off and free shipping on all Dresden.

Of all the news, though, I am most excited about our new craft. The ever-talented Ulla Milbrath has created a magical view-egg for this Easter season. Made from a papier-mache form and embellished as only Ulla can do, this is a simple and cheerful project. Peek inside the egg and find a magical little place where Warren and Connie Hopper conspire to bring colored eggs to good children. Ulla found these sweeties in her collection of vintage ephemera and they now seem quite at home in their own delightful miniature springtime landscape. A large image of the original vintage postcard featuring the dear rabbit couple is included with the instructions for the Easter Egg Theatre which you can download at the Castle in the Air Online Shoppe.

Hi Karima,

Ulla's egg theater is sooooo cute She always has the most adorable little pieces of fluff that you can't help but smile and have a warm giggle bubble out :) I posted about your online sale. We are going to check with our courier company to see if the dresden foil pieces will fly as paper. If so I can order some and have them sent to Laredo and courier down. Cross your fingers :)
