96/366 {Eggs, Naturally}

IMG_3622

We dyed Easter eggs. Which is really no biggie, but if you're living thousands of miles from the nearest mall easter bunny, and are only vaguely aware that Easter is some time in the Spring, it is actually, totally a biggie. Inspired by this site, we made natural, food-based dies, because I'm all about that sort of hippie bullshit. You know it.


In other news, my in-laws are arriving today. They're Swiss. It's Easter weekend. I think all signs point to OMG CHOCOLATE.


And finally, if you pour turmeric into boiling water, it explodes and turns your kitchen yellow. Consider this warning a public service.

I came here for the picture of the turmeric explosion - I'm so disappointed ;-) I'm too lazy to figure out how to even dye them naturally so, naturally, I never bother. Heh. Have a great time with the in-laws, nom nom chocolate.

You never fail to crack me up.

I think I may try the natural dyes if I can talk my husband into it.

Enjoy your in-laws.

Yup. Your hilarious! And I'm all into hippie bullshit too but keep it mostly under wraps. Love the natural dies for Easter especially since there are explosions involved!!

Those look lovely- and total biggie! We've never done it here but next year I will use this as inspiration.

Enjoy your inlaws!

hahahah. Sorry to disappoint. I should put disclaimers on my tweets (no pictures of explosions here)

It's totally fun. And some eggs even turned out ombre (by accident) but totally cool. I may try to perfect the effect next year. Cuz I really like the look.
