Oh you Good egg!

Easter weekend is finally here!
Today I spent the day at my parents along with my sister and niece, we baked  and baked ...traditional Greek Easter cheese pies and bread.
We spent the week fasting, those that are very religious do 40 days of fasting leading upto Holy Week but I can only manage a week and can't do the vegan thing so only cut out chicken and meat from our diet - it was actually quite easy without meat and I made lots of interesting meals using legumes and lots of vegetables - delicious and cleansing!
Tomorrow Im going to dye my Eggs.
I'm thinking of doing something a little different than the traditional Red 'Greek Easter' eggs..
the Decoupaged eggs  below are SO beautiful and I'm loving the Ombre egg project as seen in Country Living magazine recently - it looks easy enough!

have a wonderful weekend everyone!
