Happy Easter and The Versatility of Eggs

easter eggs
I can think of nothing more versatile than the humble egg. I mean think about it
easter eggs
you can paint them,
easter eggs
you can place them in a feather nest like French Blue have done,
easter eggs
You can even get felt ones,
easter eggs
some people when being cautious walk on them,
easter eggs
you can make candles out of them,
easter eggs
you can fill them with flowers,
easter eggs
you can carve them,
easter eggs
you can not only make cakes with them but you can model a cake on them,
easter eggs
you can hunt for them,
easter eggs
they even grow on trees,
easter eggs
you can knit them,
easter eggs
and you can make egg biscuits
easter eggs
but there's nothing like the real thing.
I am taking a break (forgive the pun) and will be back on Tuesday. Have a Very Happy Easter, I think after the year this world has put in we all deserve it.

Most beautiful collection of egg pictures I've ever seen. Loved the second one (painted eggs) those were gorgeous, and would look lovely in my living room on a wooden tray, or bread bowl. Now you got my mind a thinking! LOL! Thanks for the inspiration.
