Eggs are on the shopping list

We are heading into one of my favorite holidays...Easter. Not so much the whole candy thing, but I love the vibrant colors, the cuddly chicks and bunnies and the famous Easter baskets full of surprises. I can remember when I was young, my mom always did the best Easter baskets. They were not gigantic or anything abnormal, just cool stuff and all my favorite candy. I remember loving to find jelly beans left in the bottom of the basket, under the Easter grass. It was like a found treasure.

Oh, and the egg hunts. Of course, back then it seems like we used real eggs more than the plastic eggs. My Aunt Kathy would always let me and my cousin hide the eggs over and over in the house. It kept us busy for hours...such fun times.

I found a wonderful dye kit for the eggs you see posted up there on Etsy. You can check the link here. I placed my order and if all goes well, we will have a few of these cool looking eggs to hide at our house. I love funky, cool, unique stuff. It just makes me feel happy!

I love the colors, too! The eggs in the photo are beautiful! My kids are older, but I still love to give them Easter baskets. (:
