As I’ve probably mentioned before, Easter goes pretty much under my radar each year (save for the appearance of Cadbury Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs…which are all the celebrations I need).

But I bring you a few colorful, pop surrealist lagomorphic stylings of Geoffrey Gersten to set the mood.

Image Odyssey: Galaxy Easter Eggs

Posted in craft, easter, image odyssey, space with tags , , , on April 4, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’m not dyeing any Easter Eggs myself. But if I were, I’d like to take a crack (no pun intended) at galaxy eggs.

Perhaps next year I’ll find a tutorial and whip some of these up.

Are you dyeing eggs? Any special designs?

Easter Cake Wrecks

Posted in absurd, easter, food, humor with tags , , , on April 20, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

This holiday, along with Christmas, lends itself to some spectacular cake disasters.

Speaking of…at first I thought this was a colorblind attempt at a Christmas tree. Nope. It’s an egg. “Oval” is such a hard shape to make though.

While as yet an uncommon treatment for psychiatric disturbances in domesticated fowl, here we see electroconvulsive therapy being administered to a newborn chick. This procedure requires extensive clinical supervision. Talk to your healthcare provider.

Hey now, this is a family blog, miss! Can I interest you in a t-shirt or modest shawl?

I thought this animal’s eyes were firmly implanted in the middle of its own ears, until I noticed the green arcs on the side which are…the actual ears?

This is a difficult cake to behold, existentially. The poor creature’s life is clearly flashing before its stunned eyes, a split second before an untimely demise.

If you’re going to get emotional on holidays, try waterproof eye makeup.

With the advent of modern meat production, some slight anatomical anomalies began to emerge.

And now my favorite: crucified carrots against a backdrop of a toddler’s finger painting. Now THAT, my friends…is how Easter is done.

Potionsmith: Sugar Skull Bunnies

Posted in craft, easter with tags , on April 20, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Happy Easter, to those who celebrate! Here we have the kind of coloring project I would’ve LOVED as a child: Sugar Skull Bunnies!

Oh, who am I kidding with this “as a child” business? I want to sit in a sea of crayons with young nieces or nephews and color these NOW!

For those of you who may be reading with jelly bean tummy aches, peep overload or chocolate bunny ear syndrome, be thankful you did not have any easter cake! Have a wonderful April Fools Day, from She Walks Softly.

Does it get any more secular than Peeps representing a holiday? Happy Easter, Everyone. Now I’m going out to get me some Peeps! Look at these great entries in a recent Peeps diorama contest.

This is just brilliant, from Despicable Me.

The Shining!

Where do those pink slime burgers come from?

Let’s start with a little faux vintage science, shall we?

Yes. Please.

I think this cat-erpillar is on my craft to-do list now. You can make it move in many kinds of ways.

Just your average post-Easter bunny mass suicide (nice work decorating the seasonal isle, guys):

Best weather forecast ever:

You know it’s spring when the Chevys start blooming again.

Grandfather of the Michelin Man

If the Sears portrait studio offered this, I would totally get in front of a camera.

A quizzical little Max Ernst piece:

Excellent ad:

Love this…

Truly amazing top hat idea:

I’d be reluctant to buy these for the sheer amount of lacing required, but this custom painted pair is quite a work of art.

Cute crafty robot:

Perfect for Halloween season (or anytime, really):

Clock for the guest room, to make folks feel welcome:

Does anyone know the origin story of this ice cream truck?

If you haven’t heard, divorce rings are becoming…a thing, proving once again that no human milestone…however brutal…can’t be commodified.

Nice…

This has come up on a few favorite blogs now…

Exquisite.

Ghostly beautiful…

An amazing collaboration between Salvador Dali and Elsa Schiaparelli, circa 1938:

And Jesus rides in on a unicorn to save the day…

Marie Antoinette’s royal beauty regimen was far less time consuming after her loss…
