DECOR: Decoupage Easter Eggs

Pretty decoupaged eggs in a basket

Welcome the arrival of the Easter bunny with this basket of "egg-citement"!   Using blown out eggs or plastic eggs, you can easily create a truly stunning Easter display.  All you need is some ordinary white glue and some pretty paper napkins or tissue paper.  Choose colors and patterns that reflect the holiday - a combination of Easter pastels, florals, bunnies, or eggs. 

A stunning yet easy-to-create Easter table display

Cut the napkins or tissue paper into neat strips and then paste them over the surface of the eggs.  If you would prefer a more vintage Easter look, you could use strips of old book pages, tin foil, or music sheet papers instead and finish by tying the eggs with raffia. 

Allow the glue sufficient time to dry and then place the eggs in a simple basket filled with Easter grass made of shredded pink, blue, or green paper.  You could also place them in a bed of pretty tissue paper for added texture and color. This do-it-yourself project literally takes just minutes and the best part is that you can get the kids involved - they love decorating Easter eggs!

FABULOUS FIND: Live Clean Lemon Mint Foaming Hand Wash

Whenever we find a Canadian product or brand that we are totally loving, we simply have to share it with our readers.  This time, we are showcasing Live Clean - Canada's natural skin and beauty care brand.  We have recently discovered their Lemon Mint Foaming Hand Wash and now we are smitten with it.  It comes in a stylishly sleek bottle that fits well with modern kitchen and bathroom decor. It is 98% plant derived, made with certified organic botanicals, and is pure vegan.  The lemony-fresh scent is perfect for Spring as it is deliciously similar to the lovely aroma of lemon meringue [one of our favorite Easter desserts!) with a hint of minty garnish for added freshness.  Mmmm!  It truly awakens the senses while cleansing your hands in an almost luxuriant way.  One thing that we also noted was that it is more moisturizing than other hand soaps that we have tried, leaving hands feeling more comfortable with less dryness or irritation - which is a major plus! 

Live Clean Lemon Mint Foaming Hand Wash

Scented hand soaps are always popular - particularly when you can trust the ingredients.  Live Clean truly lives up to its name and this is what is so exciting about this brand and their products.  This foaming soap is triclosan free, SLS free, patrolatum free, DEA free, silicone free, phthalate free, phosphate free, paraben free.  Hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested, this soap is gentle for sensitive skin.

There is one more outstanding thing that we must tell you. It was never, ever, ever tested on animals.  This makes it all the more wonderful in our opinion!  We cannot say enough great things about Live Clean and their Lemon Mint Foaming Hand Wash.

We give it the Sweet Delight Online Magazine Stamp Of Sweetness .

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Scrooge & Marley's

 Today, we are shining the spotlight on 185 Water Street in the beautiful seaside resort town of St. Andrews, New Brunswick.  An attractive shop called Scrooge & Marley's.  Though it is nestled snuggly amidst all of the other shops and boutiques in that bustling shopping district, Scrooge & Marley's stands out from the rest with its eye-catching exterior colors and the words on the window that scream out "Fresh Fudge".  Who can resist such a place?  Not us!

At Scrooge & Marley's, you can find things that you simply cannot find anywhere else.  They offer an array of jewelry, handbags and apparel, seaside home decor, novelty gifts, and so much more.   Their homemade fudge is irresistible and always popular with visitors.  It is delicious and once you taste it, you'll be returning for more.  Believe us.

Inside Scrooge & Marley's

 We had the opportunity to meet and speak with Shelley Chase, the owner of Scrooge & Marley's.  She did not have time to chat with us for long on that day, as she was very busy, but she was more than accommodating for the time that we were there and even allowed us to snap a photo of her for our magazine.  Her cheerful disposition, her smile, and her laughter will always stick in our memory.  A friendly and welcoming Maritimer!  She is most definitely an inspiration and a true example of a successful Canadian woman.

     Interesting fact:  Shelley and her husband were once featured on the well-loved television show "Canadian Pickers", making her a local celebrity in her own right.

The next time that you are traveling through New Brunswick, make sure to stop by Scrooge & Marley's.  If you happen to see Shelley while you are there, be sure to say "hello".
