That’s where the recipe is located. I’m going to try it too because my eggs have never turned out that vibrant. I hope it works because they’re so pretty!

I have never been able to get my eggs to turn those deep colors. I was hoping to read about how you did it. What did you use? How long did you soak in the dye? Did I miss that part?

You’d think we ate nothing but preserves based on how many ways we use the empty ones…craft room supplies, makeup, water glasses…even make-your- own snow globes (keep the tops!).

Loving your new blog look…Linsey

This year, I blew my eggs out first and then dyed them — they floated! I had a devil of a time trying to dye them.

The most lovely thing was taking a nature walk with just my middle son. I asked him to tell me things that make him happy and he looked right up at me and said, “YOU!”

The best :)

I got the cheapest dye and the eggs didnt take well to them. Serves me right…I wanted to do something fun and fancy and got lazy. Next time it’ll be more artsy.

Happy Monday everyone!

Last week I had knee replacement surgery so my daughter and grand daughter took over and helped out with that special part of our Easter fun. Check out my blog: happymrsc.blogspot.com and my daughter’s blog: uncooked-art.blogspot.com. She and Miss V did a program at our wonderful organic grocery store, Greenlife, and dyed all their eggs using natural products.

I quickly commissioned Jennifer to paint a portrait of my daughter, Lilly, and her recently lost “Froggy O’Froggy”. Her best friend in the whole world. I’m so excited to see the finished product! Thank you for connecting us!!!

They’re available at most grocery stores. They have the red and white check lids and a simple white label. We especially like the raspberry.

Jenny, I’m so glad you mentioned dyeing brown eggs. I’ve always wondered how they would turn out. I’ll have to try some next year.

I didn’t realize until it was too late the we only had brown eggs and I wasn’t sure how they would turn out… they turned out beautifully! I was really surprised!
