A naturally beautiful rainbow of colors


  1. Wow, those came out great! I skipped eggs this year but I plan to do this next year.

  2. Your turmeric yellow eggs turned out much brighter than mine did :( I tried that and cochineal this year, it only takes a wee bit and you get this really stunning and bright purple!

  3. Those are great.

    We tie dyed some at our house, with silk ties that were my dads. Really fun. Pictures on my blog.

    I love the blue! Who knew?

    And that last picture? That could be at just about every house on Sunday morning. We only had one that took us all searching to find cause Dad couldn’t remember! Great shot.

  4. Ooooh, I love the yellow!

    You have inspired me so I tried the purple cabbage this year. I also melted some candle wax and put it on the eggs before I inserted them in the colorful bath. The eggs don’t look as “polished” as I wanted them to be but there’s always next year :)

    pictures of the result:


  5. Using the blue and yellow dyes to make green is inspired! It seems like green is a hard colour to replicate with just one ingredient. I ended up going with artificial colour for that one. But thanks to you, I now have a much better idea for next year. :)

  6. Beautiful colors! I’ll be sure to check out your tutorial. Looks like a fun Easter was had by all!

  7. I have to admit I’d never thought of dyeing easter eggs like that. What a neat idea. The colors sure turned out nice in the picture. And yes, I too can relate to having more fun coloring the eggs then the rest of my kids. ;)

  8. I like both of these pictures. I didn’t know you could even dye eggs with spices. I love the way they turned out.
    I also love the picture of your family. The energy in it is amazing. It tells the story.

  9. Wow! Those turned out great!

    I love that pic too…it is fantastic and reminds me of our house too!


  10. I love those types of pictures! I’m always trying so hard to get things perfectly in focus that sometimes I forget the best images are the ones that show children as they really are: a blur of motion, activity, happiness, and life.

  11. What a great idea! I’ll have to try that when my little ones get to the Easter egg dying age. I love the pictures.

  12. That’s a great shot. Definitely reminds me of my life right now.

    Also makes me think of the pics my 6 year old takes with her camera. Somehow they always come out wavy.

  13. My mom during the dust bowl and she was one of 12 kids.
    That is how they died their eggs.

    My boys are grown and we don’t do the eggs but I miss that part.

    Coffee is on.

  14. These look great! I’m thinking of using food coloring next year. The commercial packs are so wasteful!

  15. I didn’t do eggs this year, but if I had I’d love to of used those items to dye them. How beautiful they turned out!
