The cutest Easter eggs in blogland

It comes as no surprise that Jenny Holiday is all about Holidays! I am cuckoo for them! Easter may be my very very favorite. It was always such a tie with Christmas, but the bunnies take it over the edge for yes, let's carve it in stone today: Jenny Holiday's favorite Holiday of all Holidays is Easter! The pastels, bunnies, eggs, foil wrapped candies, flowers, paper grass, baby chicks, chocolates, ahhh it's all dizzying to me! And the happy traditions of baskets filled with sweets and plush bunnies
and silly toys, egg hunts, pictures with "The Easter Bunny", picking out frilly dresses and shiny shoes, crazily decorated Easter bonnets, and of course dying eggs! Soooo much fun!! And this all happens just as the weather invites us all outdoors! What's not to Love?!

I just had to share some of my favorite decorated eggs from Blogland! Aren't they just beyond happy and cheerful? Gosh...the gold makes me swoon! I am a sucker for pastels and gold! But you already know that! ;)

Beaded and sequin eggs are one of my all time favorite collectibles! I've been lucky enough on a few occasions to find them in the original kits! They were super popular at 5 & Dime stores in the late 50s early 60s. I went through a biiiig beaded everything phase a few years ago! And boy did my thumb pay for it! Fruit, stars, hearts, eggs, you name it!

These darling decoupaged prize eggs stole my heart a few years ago. Made by my super sweet and talented friend Amy Powers...yes, the gal I mentioned a few posts back. They are just perfect! Super easy and totally instant heirlooms.

Have you... or will you be dying eggs this year? Anything fun planned? I'd love to see!

Happy Weekend kids!

  1. I'm planning on dyeing eggs with Taylor and Austin... Bailey's a little young to get in on the fun this year, but he will surely sit in his bouncer and watch! I think we're going with the basic Paas kit... considering I'm working with a five year-old and a two year-old, I doubt anything intricate would be successful! :) Perhaps we could try the rubber band around the egg trick to get some stripes... that's about as fancy as we'll get! :)

  2. Another fabulous post from the lovely miss holiday.the only eggs I have in my house is of the chocolate variety but I'm off out for some supplies today to decorate some Edda,you have inspired me :) have a lovely weekend x

  3. Wow, these are amazing. Thanks so much for sharing these with us. I haven't decorated an egg in years as all my kids are grown up. Maybe I should rethink this and do them just for me.


  4. These are absolutely amazing! X

  5. The eggs are beautiful but I just can't see me figuring out how to do all that. And not sure anyone would appreciate them enough for me. They are GORGEOUS and I'm jealous of the person who can be that egg creative.

  6. Love the gold dipped ones for some reason. Wonder what you would use for that?

  7. i love all the pretty eggs , esp the mustache man so cute. i've wanted to dye eggs for two years in a row and nobody will do it with me :(

  8. EGGstremely adorable eggs! Happy Easter! Hugs, Leena

  9. Aaron and I only have fur babies....we dye eggs because we are BIG kids ourselves! :)


  10. Jenny! I love, love, love your blog! And I cannot say thank you enough for stopping by my humble little piece of the internet. You are really sweet.
    I love your tutorial round up too! You chose such pretty and inspiring images. I'm a sucker for metallic as well and those prize eggs are just darling.
