    My favorite color is magenta, just wondering if beet juice would be a good egg dye. Back in the 70’s my mother and I cut out tiny birds and flowers from tissue napkins (rice paper she called them) and glued them on eggs. I still have one in a box in my Christmas decorations

  82. Yvonne, what beautiful egg vignettes you’ve created! I especially love the red cabbage dyed eggs and the torn napkin decorated eggs.

  83. Susan Kistler says:

    I have a “thing” for Easter eggs too! A friend just showed me how to use men’s old silk ties to dye eggs using vinegar- the pattern transfers to the eggs- going to try your book page and torn napkins ones too- so pretty and creative!

  84. Linda Mittleider says:

    Such wonderful ideas. Thank you.

  85. Thanks for the how too on all the eggs.

  86. This year I went with non store bought eggs in colors of blue and tan for my decor. My boss raises chickens and he brought me quite a few eggs. I blew out the inside and we ate scrambled eggs for days – even my dogs had eggs! Now I think I might mix in some tissue paper eggs as well.

  87. Yvonne, so many gorgeous ideas. Love blue and white. Beautiful vignettes. Happy Spring to you and your family.

  88. I am enjoying all the different types of Easter eggs in using different things to dye the eggs.
