One of my favorite sites to follow on my side bar is Our Best Bites. Sara and Kate write "Tips, Tricks, Tastes from Two Real Life Kitchens".
I love their posts because they are practical, and showcase things I could actually make.
Recently, Sara did a tutorial on how to make Silk Dyed Easter Eggs.
We have a tradition of dying Easter Eggs every year, and I thought I had tried them all. But this was a new technique for me.
Sara collects old silk ties and uses them for the base of the dye.
How cool is that?
With my new found interest in hunting thrift shops, guess who is going to have silk ties on the list?
