Easter has never really been any great important holiday to me, but I've always enjoyed the egg decorating tradition. It's been about ten years or so since I've decorated eggs for Easter so this year my fella, Dustin, and I did just that.
I mixed up six dye colors into my vintage pyrex custard cups that once belonged to my great Grandmother. The dyes were simple homemade food coloring, vinegar, and water dyes. So, with a bit of dye, wax, elastics, and creativity we decorated three eggs each.
The rainbow, rainbow stripe (did not intentionally dye it to match my socks, I swear!), and minty green wax polka dot egg are mine.
The "X Box", tri-stripe, and purple wax dot egg are Dustin's.
