What I love about the approach of Easter is that it allows me to fulfil my indulgent obsession with nests.
Not just any nests, but nests filled with eggs. Ever since I was a young child I have been fascinated with the discovery of a bird nest nestled in a tree, we would search high and low for these little nests and carry them carefully home. Now that I live in the city scavenging for them is no longer an option so I have to be content with making my own. For me decorating for Easter needs nothing more simple than a little speckled egg!!
If you are interested in making your own nest it is worth checking out Kate' tutorial at Nesting
This site has some good advice for making dying speckled eggs
I just love the simplicity of eggs used as table decorations.
