Playing Around with Beautiful Brown Eggs for Easter

P1100334

I've been playing around with brown eggs this week!

Having never even considered using brown eggs at Easter, I was more than a little apprehensive last year when I learned that Sophia and Antonio had been dying brown eggs for Easter.

Turns out - brown eggs are beautiful when dyed and tomorrow I will show you Sophia's and Antonio's tricks!

Today, however, I wanted to share some beautiful brown eggs I have been playing around with - revisiting techniques I have used in the past and some great ideas from fellow bloggers.

Ribbon Sandwiches - Perfect for Easter

When I was a kid and my mother made these little Ribbon Sandwiches - which she did every year for the church circle Mother's Day Tea - I was in heaven when she finally pulled the chilling loaves from the fridge and sliced off the crusts.

You see - we kids got to eat the crusts and the bits of those yummy fillings still clinging to them! We weren't allowed to have any of the perfect ones because they were for the tea. But that was just fine with us. The "reject" crusts were just as good.

Diane wrote a "guest" tutorial for making Japanese Inspired Ornaments during the very first holiday season on Gingerbread Snowflakes; and three years later, it still remains one of the top ten posts, so I thought I would share a few simple techniques for making similar Thread Wrapped Easter Eggs!

In my opinion, a beautiful way to combine and honor age old traditions from East and West.
