An Easter Project: Saving onion skins

Why am I saving onion skins?:

Why, to do this, of course: Are these not the most beautiful, and simply classy, Easter eggs?

They are dyed completely using natural material....including onion skins, turmeric, coffee, and cabbage! I think that the simple beauty of these are worth the effort. Click on this link to hop over to Martha Stewart to read all about the "How-To." This is not hard, peeps!

And start saving your onion skins!

Ok, Mrs. Crafty - you are just too cute and too much!

Love them!

Does that mean I have to start buying onions - hmmmm? LOL! I can't eat them raw or even cooked - so I don't buy them.

Hugs and love sweet friend - you really are such a crafty one!

Darlene, I've been following your blog for a little while now. You are so crafty and artsy I love it! Once I get a decent photo shop program I plan to start Digi Scrapbooking. I am really excited. I am also a Christian and think we would have a lot in common! :) Hope to talk to you soon. :)

God Bless!

P.S. I hope you don't mind I tagged you on my blog. :)

Hi Darlene! All you do is post your "True Confessions". Really anything you want us to know about you that we might not already. Somewhere in the post put a link back to me and then if you want, tag others with links to their blogs as well. :) It's really fun!

Sassy said...

Oh, and I forgot to add that when you tag others you leave a comment on their blog letting them know. :)

Cory's parents have been dyeing Easter eggs like this forever ... and Cory loves the eggs dyed with onion skins. He thinks they taste different ... and they probably do!
