dying easter eggs
But we did get some beautiful Greek egg colouring from our local Armenian grocer and an even lovelier surprise while we were there- WHITE eggs! Now to North Americans, this is nothing. But in Australia it is near impossible to find snow white eggs at the supermarket. Trust me, I have tried for 6 Easters in a row now. So when I saw these divinely white eggs I was beyond excited!
We hurried home, hardboiled them (I prefer to blow them, but they are far too delicate in this state for very little hands), drew on them with some beeswax crayons and then soaked them in the various colours.
They came out beautifully and are now on display on our Autumn Nature Table which has transformed into more of an Easter table for the time being.
