Since the next sunday is Easter Sunday, it is only fitting that we all get with the program, and perform that time-honored tradition of dying Easter Eggs. And, for those of us into Wordless Wednesday, show off our handiwork on our blogs for others to
get all jealous over enjoy.
Since I don’t have young children at home anymore, I don’t actually dye eggs for Easter. However, I happen to live not too far from a collection of really nice Easter Eggs – Fabergé Eggs (Яйца Фаберже́), which are on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
These aren’t your normal Easter Eggs, either – not unless you were a member of, or very close friends with, Tsar Nicholas II of Imperial Russia. Instead of your usual grocery store quality dyes, these things were decorated with highly polished lacquers and precious metals, and studded with gemstones. Certainly not the type of egg you want to hide in the back yard for the kiddoes to go a-hunting on Easter morning!
And so, without further ado… The Images!
So, do you plan on putting out real eggs, or the plastic ones, this Easter morn?
