dyeing quail eggs is quite extraordinary.

After dyeing brown eggs I was inspired to dye quail eggs to use in my Easter centerpiece. Their tiny size appeals to me  but mostly I am in love with their fabulous speckles.  I was eager to see how quickly these little tan shells would soak up color.

Much quicker to absorb the color and so amazing with the brown spots!

My heart is aflutter at the sight of these little beauties.

In my ideal world, I was planning on blowing out the yolks and saving the eggs. The yolks are too big, the holes are too small, I am too dizzy, forget it. I'll be keeping them in the fridge to use on Sunday in my garden themed table setting. Until then, I will smile every time I open the door to get a snack.
