Easter Eggs

If you haven't had a chance to enter my first Giveaway meander over here. I'll wait.
What I Made:

Let's just jump right in shall we? Of course I dyed Easter eggs. I have a mind blowing tip for you though. Compare and contrast the two dozen eggs below:

Besides the fact that several of the eggs in the top dozen are multicolored, do you notice anything else? Maybe how beautifully vibrant the lower dozen is?

Here's the secret. The bottom eggs...they're brown. Same old food coloring, same old vinegar, but brown eggs. If having the most beautiful Easter Eggs in town floats your boat (and if not humor me), buy a dozen brown eggs and knock yourself out.

I learned this trick years ago while my mom and I were buying several dozen eggs. A random stranger told us to try it. Whoever you are, random lady, you have benefited the brown egg industry.


  1. I am getting brown eggs next year! Thanks for the tip.

  2. Wow, and here I went out and specifically bought white eggs for dying, because usually we get brown ones from a local farm... hahahhahaha. Maybe we'll have to do some more this afternoon!

  3. I never would have thought of that, but you're right, they are gorgeous!!! Good to know!
    And thanks for stopping by, it's nice to meet you! :)
