More Turquiose

I wanted to show you some of the beautiful blue eggs that were given to us by a friend from her wonderful chickens.   We actually spent Sunday afternoon at her house blowing the eggs out of the shells and then enjoying omelets!

I haven't decided what, if anything, I'm going to do with these eggs, aside from enjoying their beauty.

I am thinking of basing my guest room's color scheme on them.  (See post below about the House of Turquoise.)

Absolutely.

So how did these eggs become blue? I have heard of brown or white for chicken eggs, but never blue. Very pretty!

They come from a breed of hens that lay blue eggs. A great short cut on Easter egg dyeing!

One year I went to a health food store and picked up some blue eggs to hard boil for my mom for Easter. They are so beautiful.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
