Anyway today we painted some eggs - I am far too parsimonious to buy real blue eggs so painting will have to suffice. I had gone to the car boot (cough, cough) and bought lots of lovely Spring pots so used them here.
I think that I have gone on (and on) about this little egg cup holder before but I think it is most splendid. I bought it a couple of years ago for the grand sum of 10 pence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a stall of great splendour and everything was pennies - the woman who was running it said that if I came back after 1.30 I could have everything for FREE (she really, really did not wish to take anything home again). I did not return at 1.30 - only because I had bought two Victorian rhubarb forcers and I was on my pushbike. Regrets....I have had a few...
I love the mix of colours in these photos and the sun was so bright it was all deliciously nice. Can you hear the chicks cheeping?
Egg drying is quite an art!
With some of the other pots that I bought I put them into an old Blue Bird tin - carefully retrieved from the garden shed (where there might be some more tins and some jugs and perhaps a few Edwardian tureens - all pressed into gardening action when the time is right).
Not quite finished in this photo but quick and easy to do nevertheless - I have put a layer of gravel on the bottom for drainage. I hope that you had a sunny day too
