Colored Eggs & Spring

We colored eggs.  I don't know how my hand ended up in the photo, and then there is the rootbeer on top of a touch-up paint can. 

We didn't intend for all blue eggs and a copper colored looking one.  We left the food coloring out in the sun and blue was still blue, but red was probably not red anymore because we didn't get pink and the purple turned brown.   So we re-dipped the brown in the blue and made the speckle.

We tried putting tattoos on the eggs.  
We waited too long and could not find spring images, so fairies had to do.  
It was fairly easy once we remembered to take the plastic off before putting it on and wetting it!  It was also easier to squeeze water all over the image rather than try to hold it there and pat with a damp cloth; most of those images peeled.

 A little bit of organizing...with some organizers that I found at IKEA.

And in case you didn't see my finished kitchen.  The spammers keep hitting two old posts and moving them up in importance on the sidebar.

  6. Such cute eggs. I love the tatoo idea (I wish I had thought of it!!!) I saw your kitchen was selected in the First Project of the year List at Whisperwood Cottage. You so deserve it, I was very happy for you.

    1. Thank you, Magali. It's just one of those methods that are out there. We have done stickers, stamps, glitter, tie-dye, glue... all sorts of them in the past and thought we would give a different one a try.
