in living color

A lot of people are observing a week of color, and that is a beautiful thing. But as someone who has been getting up prior to the crack of dawn this week to lead architectural historians on coffee-fueled walking tours, I am not feeling quite focused enough for that. I present to you instead: Things That Have Changed Color.

water (+ beet juice, red cabbage leaves, onion skins, and turmeric):


eggs:


Iris' playroom:


and freezer-paper-stencilled T-shirts:


Two for a brand-new baby born on Easter morning – who could wish for a more perfect birthday? – one for her radiant and exhausted mom, and one for her big sister, so she won't feel left out.

Iris didn't change color, except for her hands a little because she helped.

fantastic! all of it. the colors (and polkadots! woo!) of the eggs are really quite extraordinary, aren't they? i love the idea of the natural dyes.
and the stencils turned out fab, didn't they? the girls must be really thrilled.

great post - thanks!
