Gaston Studio said...

Wonderful selection Hilary, and I'm off to read those I haven't already read! Thanks so much!!

blueviolet said...

I hope I get the chance to dye some eggs this year. Without kids around, I sometimes forget to do fun things like that!

Daryl said...

OMG I am in love with those eggs, the colors/colours are mouth wateringly vibrant.

Congrats to everyone.

Dianne said...

I love the purple'ish color

how wonderful that you chose Side Effects, it's such a great little movie :)

Dawn said...

I've been out of the Blog-Loop for a few days now. It was nice to see some color here to brighten up my middle-of-the-week day today.
Thank you.

Kat said...

Congrats to the POTW! Off to check them out! :)

Bossy Betty said...

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Susan in the Boonies said...

Those eggs are LOVELY!

I just loved Bossy Betty's post about Distances. So touching!!!

Congrats to all the winners!!!

Maggie said...

Thank you again for all those wonderful links. :)

Yes, for me, Flickr is more than clunky, but it does offer the best quality online photos anywhere. The pros use this site, which tells me that it's good. My photos for the blog are only semi important to me. Some mornings, just getting the blog up is all I can do. I've settled in over at the HP site Snapfish since the early 2000's, and it seems to work with my laziness.

Out on the prairie said...

I celebrate them all. I really like to color eggs, and get artsy while doing it.Then what do you do with all of them? LOL

Bob Bushell said...

What is an Egg, never mind, all your photographs are splendid.

Debbie said...

I just discovered that someone sweetly gave a post of mine a shout out. What a nice thing to do! Thank you!

I loved that Grandmother/Granddaughter photo. It was wonderful!

And your eggs look far lovelier than anything I do.

Reb said...

Lovely eggs! Thanks so much for the POTW shout out.

christinemyoung said...

Hilary,
I'm having to take a little break from blogging for a few weeks, but checked in and found several new comments...I knew immediately you must have been behind it! Thanks so much, and I'll get around to reading everyone else ASAP - it's quite hectic here at the moment, but I promise to return visits!

And the eggs, of course, look fantastic. With all the new crafty ways of decorating these symbols of spring, I'd almost forgotten the beauty of the plain old vinegar dyed eggs.

Andrey Dorokhov said...

Thank you ))

rosaria said...

Ah, Easter eggs and an easter run to seek favorites on the way. Happy Easter, H.
