No trips to buy dye kits, so decorating eggs became a fun group effort. The moiré egg on the right (my personal favorite…meaning “eat last”) was done with a combination of felt pens and colored pencils. The two dark greens top and bottom sat in red cabbage water overnight (chopped up red cabbage boiled, strained, with vinegar added). One kept its original, lovely brownness because we ran out of ideas and/or enthusiasm and the last three were done entirely with felt pens. I like them better than those Paas numbers and they were way more fun.
Hillary is staying with us and boy, do we put together some super meals when we pool our resources.
I hope you are finding ways to spice up your life while following the guidelines to stay home and stay safe. I have been out of the loop for some time, during which WordPress has “improved” things beyond my comprehension so please bear with any glitches and accept my very best wishes for the season, whatever it may bring your way.
So good to see your post pop into my inbox, Rickii. Your (Easter?) totem is wonderful! Likewise, your seasonal meal. Richard has his priorities aligned well… Happy Easter!
Hi Jane! Meeting here is better than nothing, no?
How wonderful to see the goings on at Chez Sprig to Twig. Where will the totem pole live?
I think the totem has pretty much found its place…out of the weather.
Great beautiful blog, my very favorite!
Could it be that you are ever so slightly prejudiced? I sure hope so.
