Eggs, eggs, and more eggs!

The eggs at the Oster Markt last weekend were amazing! There were 79 crafters from all over Europe who showcased many techniques for decorating eggs. I was on a mission to collect more eggs to decorate my dining room tree....mission complete!

Here are the eggs that I purchased! The egg prices ranged from 3 Euro - HUNDRENDS of Euro....gasp! I stuck with the under 15 Euro price range except for one......
All of vendors had special boxes or bags to put the eggs in. Some were fancier and some were recyclable like this one....
pretty on the inside though!
Naturally speckled egg....
With a tree on one side.....
Remember this lady from my original post?? (check it out HERE)
Well she has an incredibly steady hand!
I chose 5 eggs that had not been colored yet, but did have a design on them.
She wrote each of my kids' name on an egg and then colored them.
Each has a poem written on it as well...
Do you see how steady her hand is??
The packaging for each egg for the kids....
I just loved the colors on these...
These eggs were decorated with paper.....
This one had such a cute matching box....
I can't wait to decorate my tree next Spring with my new eggs and the ones I already have!

Those are absolutely amazing! Do they sell eggs year round or just in the spring? Seems like the perfect souvenir!

I have only seen them at the Spring markets, but all the artists included their business card with each purchase so they may sell them other times as well......although it may take them all year to create enough to sell at the markets:)
