I never, ever tire of it.
This year, I decided to add a little something new to our egg dying traditions.
Just the smallest addition. It required no extra work on my part. And I am so happy with the way it turned out. I came across the idea in one of my favorite magazines, Sunset.
Jewel toned eggs. don't you love them?
All you have to do to get these magnificent colors is use brown eggs.
That's right! Brown eggs.
So we picked up a dozen brown, dyed them along side our white ones and I am in love. Their colors are rich and deep and almost seem to have a patina.
I like them a whole lot. That's really saying something because the bright, cheery pastels are nearly impossible to beat in my book. These jewels don't beat them, they just add a nice difference to our Easter egg repertoire.So if you haven't done your eggs yet, or just want to do more because it is so fun (I am not kidding--really is one of my favorite holiday activities of all time) then try some brown eggs.
You'll love them.
