Easter Eggs



My daughter painted these eggs for me some years back and they're still my favorite Easter decorations. They're real chicken eggs, blown out a tiny hole on each end, rinsed, dried and hand painted. The bold colors and geometric designs really appeal to me, especially at this time of year when most decorations focus on pastel and soft colors.

What a talented daughter you have, these are beautiful. They make me want to go and blow out some eggs of my own.

These are beautifl, you are so wise to have taken photos of them.

I will just have to rememebr those eggs I made with my daughters (26 and 21) when they were younger.

These took an incredibly long time to do. The hardest part was trying to thin up a unique design for each egg. I also busted quite a few as I was blowing them out!
