Egg candle Easter or spring decor: make hand knitted cords, wrap these around small card board rolls to make candle holders. Decorate with feathers. Make egg candles by melting candle left-overs into empty egg shells and adding a wick. Put the egg candles and their holders on a tray with moss, birch twigs and Primroses or other spring flowers.

Haliotis scalaris (Australia). Living on rocks in surge zones, their rippled surface creates eddies in water flow dynamics that help them to stay in place (clever, right?) We supplied some to the Max Planck Institute for Biomaterial research.
