Not Yo Mama's Easter Eggs!

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Have you noticed that Easter eggs have come along way on the design front?

They're not the same ole eggs that we used to dye when I was little with the vinegar and the Paas egg dying kit!

You'd drop the colored tablet in the vinegar watching it dissolve, just waiting to create a masterpiece! Instead they would always turn out splotchy and uneven. And if you were like our family we would start dipping them in all the colors and we'd end up with poop colored Easter eggs...so pretty!

I was always jealous of our neighbors because each kid got to dye their own dozen eggs! Where my sister and I had to share a dozen and then my Dad always had to come in and dye a couple! Traumatic I know! 

But still good memories!!

Anyway back to the eggs of today... To say the least people are doing some amazing things with Easter eggs!

Take a look!



These are done with a sharpie pen!! Incredible...edible egg! Sorry I couldn't help myself!


These unique eggs are decorated with wire!!

These gold leaf eggs are gorgeous and fun!




Yvonne over at Stone Gable has a tradition of making onion skin dyed Easter eggs each Spring.

If you haven't popped over to Stone Gable you really should! Her home is decorated impeccably for Spring...but beware you'll want to throw everything out of your house and start over!

So hopefully this has inspired you to get creative with your Easter eggs this year.

And go ahead and be wild and buy each one of your kids a dozen!

They'll remember!!

Make it a great weekend!
XO,
