I love to decorate for fall more than Halloween in particular and now that our Sons are grown, there's really not much prep for Halloween, other than buying the candy.

That looks really pretty and fairly painless. I'll have to add that to my Easter book to try next year!

It's so interesting to learn how this was done! When I was little, in my grandmother's china cabinet was a baby mug with a purplish egg in it. She told me my grandfather dyed the egg with onion skins when he was a boy, blew out the insides, and kept it in his baby mug. Now I know how it's done!

How neat. Yes I have heard that the eggs can also be blown out. I bet it was really pretty with red onion skins. Will have to try it sometime! =)

Well it's that time of year again to color eggs. Daughter and I will be doing ours this Friday. She has an early out from school and doesn't go back until Tuesday morning.
