Decorating Easter eggs with scarves and turmeric

DSC_3096.jpg

Search pinterest “how to dye easter eggs with silk ties” and you’ll get a ton of results on this fun decorating idea.  I didn’t have silk ties but, I found some old scarves and put the method to the test.  It worked like a charm!  I also used the simple method of using a rubber band on eggs and dyeing them in turmeric.  It was amazing the deep yellow color I got just out of 20 minutes of soaking.  Will definitely use this technique again, and plan ahead with a trip to the thrift store searching for silk ties!

2015-firehaze-sunset-haloHey shutterbugs!  Anyone have tips on removing the magenta halo around sunset shots?  I have tried the natural and vivid picture settings and this halo shows up with both settings.  Appreciate the help! – Amelia

Breakfast salad (Sideboard -Danville, CA)

Salad for breakfast? Hella yeah!! Baby kale, poached eggs, bacon, shaved fennel, parmesan cheese, and goddess dressing.  What’s not to love?? Still my fav at Sideboard in downtown Danville.  Yum…
