Serendipity Experience 82 : Easter Eggcitement!

 I love the simplicity and joy of Easter. It is a celebration of  new life, freshness and  pureness!
 Whilst the chocolate bunnies are embraced enthusiastically by our household on Easter Sunday, beyond
 the chocolate is the excuse to refresh the house with beautiful posies and fresh pastel colours.
 Easter for us is a time to relax and re energize.  To set the easter table, prepare an easter tree and delight in  making a mess dying eggs.

Unfortunately in recent years the new wax coating that they have been applying onto our eggs has somewhat hindered the effects of our egg dying practices. Sourcing eggs straight from the farmyard is no easy feat, even when visiting the local markets. ( so called fresh eggs miraculously still had that waxed coating!!!!!)

For me the humble egg is such a perfect package. It looks fabulous sitting in an eggcup. used as a centerpiece or initialed as a place card, I  just have to be careful not to get  eggstremely carried away!!!

Your Easter eggs are beautiful Simone!
I was fortunate enough to be able to get some without the coating from a friend. Mine simply never dry when coated. :-( Wonder why they put the coating on anyway!!!

Your eggs looks so beautiful. I haven't died eggs in years. This makes me want to give it a go! I wonder if they put that coating on the eggs here?
Anyway I do hope you have a lovely week!

Hugs, Linda

I'm loving reading all the easter posts this morning- getting me enthused for a easter week over at mine next week!

OK so I must look out for the eggs I buy my kiddos to decorate- thanks for the tip! Non waxy!
