Fairly Successful Eggs

So, we followed directions......mostly.......and did OK..........mostly.  We determined that the onion peels are way better for this project, that mommy should have used the entire head of cabbage and that carrots (and a pinch of saffron) are only good if you want beige eggs.  Here are the pics in all their glory!

collected stuff from outside with cool shapes, wrapped them up in old pantyhose.  Wait, who am I kidding?!  Never-worn pantyhose.......who wears that anymore?

Placed them in the pots with their vegetation.


30 minutes of boiling and 3 hours (yes, 3) of sitting and....ta da!

Here are all of them in the carton so you can see there is some color to the beige ones.

So, Charlie, challenge accepted and accomplished!


  1. Very pretty! And hey, sometimes we're so wrapped up in work and family obligations that it's hard to fully "do" the holidays. Why not continue to celebrate spring and the return of new life? Kudos to you.

  4. Really pretty! A lot more visually interesting than the typical dyed Easter eggs.
