Shampoo Bottles

I work for a recycling company and we get tons of new,empty shampoo bottles

 like this one in different colors

 I saw on pinterest that they made cute gift bags out of them and I wanted to give it a try too.
I didt made pics during the progress cause  I got pretty lazy taking pics lately. But I think i turned out pretty cute andy many ways to decorate them.

Now I Want Some Ostrich Eggs Too

Well I got Marianne two ostrich eggs and somehow I wanted some two...... I have no clue what I will do with the egg shells - its more a MUST HAVE - lol

After going back to the ostrichs I came home with these two

I wanna keep the shells in a whole I had to open them in a different way😅

I didnt like the smell of the drilled on shell - but finally the hole was done

and now I had to get the egg out.......

We had omlette that day - from the taste, well I would say that there is no difference from a chicken egg.

The shells are in a locker and waiting for me to get an idea what to do with them.

Ostrich Eggs And Birthday Present

Last year I was looking for a birthday present for a friend - she is very creative and is interested in a lot of things to do, to try out........... since engraving is one of her interests I thought about a present which goes in this direction. I knew that Marianne already did great job on engraved eggs......... well chicken eggs what about some ostrich eggs?!?! But where can I get ostrich eggs in Germany......... very close to my house - only a 30 min. drive away

May I introduce you to the rooster

 and his chickens

 Even if they looked friendly and the owner fed them out of his hands - I had huuuuge respect........

 .......look at their claws - must be a leftover from a pterosaurian. The owner told me that they can easily rip open your stomach - well that kept even more on distance.

I bought two eggs and here you can compare a chicken and an ostrich egg. An ostrich egg is approx. 15 chicken eggs

ready to surpise Marianne
