Eggs

You CAN make an omelet without breaking eggs. It’s just a really bad omelet.

Okay, they're all beautiful, but of course I need to pick some favorites. :-)

Number one has to be the straw-decorated egg. Not only beautiful, but the work that went into making it!

Easter in Wonderland has to be a fave, if for nothing because it's a little on the weird side.

And a tie goes to the Czech and the German eggs. Gorgeous.

I am dyeing (haha) to show this post to Miranda-- she'll love it. Of course that will make our own egg decorating session that much more complicated, I suppose.

They are beautiful, Tabatha. The most creative I ever got was to use natural dyes to dye the eggs, like blueberry blue, spinach green, etc. It was fun to see the hues that the different foods gave us.

Gorgeous, all. Pysanky (Ukranian egg decorating) has become a tradition with my daughter and me (and a couple of friends), but I admit my eggs look more Jim Henson-inspired than those beautiful examples above. :) Happy egg decorating!

Yesterday, Kurious Kitty had a post with a link to deviled egg recipes for those whose egg-decorating talents only consist of boiling, dipping, eating!
