Feeling the Sun


I suppose it's suitable...that I took over a hundred pictures of eggs today. What not with all of the posts on Chicken coops I've been doing these past two days. What? I'm obsessed.

This time though, it's not quite about chicken housing - rather the egg itself.


The weather is finally beginning to feel like Spring. The sun is out and it's actually warm! Plus, the snow is melting. I took the chance to go outside and take pictures of a project that my wonderful Mom and I did together the other day.


She taught a class at our 4H's Project Workshop days recently, and they used this technique on glass vases. They turned out beautiful!

When we got home, we decided to try it out on eggs. I love the affect, so much more bright and fun that store bought dyes! Plus, it's hands on.

Mentioning hands.....ours were ridiculously dyed afterward and that paint is killer to get off.

I may or may not have ended up with a streak of green in my hair, that we had to get out with nail polish remover.

Huh. Maybe I should have kept it like that.

I mean, didn't you here that green streaks are all the rage?

Be sure to take a peak at the great tutorial for these over on my Moms blog!
