Easter is done and it was lovely.
I used the trimmings from our front yard bushes to make things pretty and green.
We spent Friday night dying eggs as a family. We used foods to die them and it worked out pretty good.
We used yellow onion skins to make orange. Red onion skins just made a brownish color.
A lot of websites said to use tumeric for yellow, but I didn't have that so I used yellow curry powder and it worked to make a light yellow. Red cabbage makes blue, but I had to leave it in it all night to get a light blue.
I chopped up beats in the vitamix to make a pink.
I kinda mixed between all of them and came up with some pretty colors. We will definitely be doing that again and experimenting some more.
I made these table cloths for our Young Womens New Beginnings. The theme for that was the Princess and the Pea.
I also hung some pom-poms from that in out tree.
Look at my cute Dad.
And again for their Easter baskets I used bush trimmings. As I was giggling putting the baskets together Russ said, "I love that pretty things make you happy." It is true, I like things to look pretty.
