Beautiful eggs for Easter

What is it about an egg that makes it such a beautiful object? The fragility? The chalky surface? The shape or colour? 

Probably all of those things and a few more. In their gorgeous hues of whites, browns, blues and greens and randomly speckled with dots and spots and blotches, eggs are a real thing of beauty.

They're also very unforgiving! Because they are such a smooth and perfect shape, they are very difficult to use for decoupage! Any tiny imperfections in cutting are really obvious and ruin the form of the egg. 

One of the most memorable presents I ever received consisted of a pineapple and a box of tiny quails eggs. Random and quirky, but all the better for it!

Look at Easter eggs differently this year. Celebrate their beauty.
