oh my

A lady named Kristy made these gorgeous eggs. Her idea was to use natural dyes and they are great inspiration for this spring. She used vegetables and spices (red cabbage, red and white onion skins, beets, fennel, spinach, tumeric, cumin, hibiscus tea, cinnamon, and coffee), vinegar and alum along with a few special techniques for creating plant impressions and patterns. Lovely work - I can't wait for April!
