Hello everyone and hello dear ladies of the Ladies of Hive community. I hope you are all well and ready for a great weekend!
This is a holiday weekend in my country. We celebrate Easter tomorrow. Every year for Easter I paint eggs in different colors, but this year I decided to turn to nature and do something different. From childhood until today, the most delicious Easter eggs for me have always been eggs painted in onion skins. They have a special taste, although they do not look very attractive.
I went out with my son to pick some flowers and leaves to decorate the eggs.
He was choosing and was very happy about it. We picked a lot of different leaves, dandelions, clovers, daisies...
Then he suggested that we could cut paper in various shapes and also decorate eggs with it. I accepted the idea. We cut baking paper and made various shapes.
I cut out old tights. I put the decoration over the egg and wrapped each egg and tied it with string.
I first put onion skins in the cooking pot.
Then I put eggs over it.
And onion skins again. I poured water, apple cider vinegar, and a little salt and put it to cook on low heat.
And here are my Easter eggs. I coated them with sunflower oil to get a shine and my son stuck stickers on some of them.
They are not very attractive but they are natural. Lately, I've been trying to turn to nature whenever I can. I avoid everything that is artificially made and is not necessary. I don't need to have colorful eggs for Easter. I will be happy with these as well...
And my son found a way to bring colors to this holiday and he painted styrofoam eggs. 🙂
So, in the end, we were all happy and satisfied. 🙂
Thank you very much for reading.
