Easter Egg Envy

It's almost that time of year again, when we all start buying and dying eggs.  I love how it has kind of become an art form, what with all the crafty bloggers and DIYers out there elevating the tradition and creating new ones.
I decided to share with you the obligatory favorite Easter egg post today.  There are so many fun, creative ways to decorate your eggs now, and a quick search on pinterest and  a couple of other great blogs turned up some old favorites as well as some new ones worth trying out this year.
A lot of my favorites came from Anne Weil of the blog Flax & Twine, who recently did her own Easter egg round up.

I adore these crocheted Easter eggs.  Aren't they pretty?!  And different.  And gorgeous, really.
Here. I'll prove it.

Right now that is the blog header over at Flax & Twine.  Eggs.  3 eggs with crochet on them, and I think it is a stunning header.  Who would have thought that 3 eggs could be so damn pretty?

Here are some decoupaged flower eggs.  Beautiful flowers = beautiful eggs.

How much fun is this little man?  I don't think you even have to save him for Easter.  He'd be a fun addition to a weekend breakfast with the kiddos.

Regardless of whether or not you think ombre is still in or on its way out, there is no denying that these are some pretty eggs!

I think these eggs are gorgeous.  It may be because they are grey.  I have a thing for grey at the moment.  These particular eggs were dyed using the silk wrapping method.  It's actually a fairly simple process, but my eggs never looked that good when we dyed them using silk ties.

How about some doodle eggs for you?  These will work only if you have talent and patience.  But if you do, then you can get some beautiful graphic eggs like these too.
Want more inspiration?  You should head on over to Flax & Twine- she has a lot more gorgeous, inspiring egg pics over there.
And in the meantime, let me just wish you a happy Monday!  Hope your week is off to a fantastic start.
