Eggs: ‘Tis the Season for Fresh and New

A few days ago, a dear friend brought me these beautiful farm-fresh eggs to brighten my day. Not only did they bring a smile … but also an excellent springtime color story.

Cath: “Thank you and wow, let me just save these colors before we turn them into Kiki’s Delicious Deviled Eggs.”



Then, the very next day, this flannel fabric strike-off (above) arrived in our studio west for corrections and review. We would love to tell you that the eggs above were the inspiration for the Humpties below, but these drawings were completed months ago. So, perhaps this is actually a case of reverse-inspiration … or maybe scrambled déja vu.

In any case, they both are examples of happy new things to come. Hope you are having a little hint of springtime in your neck of the woods.

P.S. You can enjoy these soft flannels all over again in the late spring when they hit the market as part of our upcoming collection, Nursery Rhyme Kingdom, coming out with David Textiles.

P.P.S. Here’s the recipe for Kiki’s Delicious Deviled Eggs, and don’t worry, these are just as delicious with eggs of a more subtle color story.


Note: Kiki was Greek, and added Cavender’s to everything, but if you don’t have any on hand, these are still tasty, just not so Greek. From time to time, we have also added a tiny bit of lemon juice for a little extra zing.  As you can see, this is one of those recipes that is slightly different every time you make it. But always delicious.
