Random Monday Memories # 2 . . .

Today's memory is fitting for the week
leading up to Easter.
Dying Easter eggs was always a lot of fun
for me when I was a child.

I started getting excited when my Mother
bought a kit at the grocery store or Woolworth.
We always dyed the eggs the
day before Easter.

Mixing the vinegar & color tablets in small glasses
was always smelly, but I didn't mind
because I knew it would be worth it in the end.

My favorite colors were purple, pink, and aqua blue.

Watching the magic a wax crayon could create was so amazing.

Of course nothing could compare with hunting Easter
eggs over and over again!

Having a big basket filled with pretty eggs was the best!

Do you have sweet memories of Easter egg making?

I sure do have great memories of coloring Easter eggs!
I'm looking forward to making them this year with our 'girls' eggs. They come out darker and more jewel toned.
Have a wonderful day!

Such great memories! I remember my mom always had to put our pet dog in the garage so she wouldn't find the eggs first:)

Mine were the same and our kids all do it too now. We loved the hiding them part and the kids finding fun! :D
