Ombre Eggs and Bamberg-bound

I hope you had a lovely Easter; we certainly did. We had a great church service followed by a day spent with family -and chocolate! Now we're getting ready to head off to Bamberg for a last-minute mini-break, but before we head out, here's a close-up of what's inside the larger glass dome on our mantel.  
I moved things around a little more since my previous post, so now you can see some of the ombre-style eggs I dyed this year. Sadly, I dropped and cracked my favorite egg on the keyboard as I was Skyping my family, so no pictures of that one. =( Still, the mini yellow bunting was fun and adds a bit of color and height. Originally I had hoped to find some budding branches or yellow daffodils, but the bunting was longer lasting in the end. I find display height to be tricky, yet important, with these domes.

Here's a close-up of one of the eggs we bought at the Easter egg market this year. I can't believe it was only 12 Euro; I know the market is saturated with certain things, but I really think this woman could charge more as her style is definitely unique.

And here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on (I'm hoping to reach one of my New Year's goals!):

That's all the news for now. We're heading out soon, so this will be another quiet week here on the blog.

Anybody have any tips on what to see and do in Bamberg? Specifically any craft or other creative-oriented shops?? I would love some insider tips!

how beautiful! i love that tiny garland inside the dome!

to be honest, i can't stop looking at those wonderfully colored eggs, with those bunnies, i'm in love with them : ) i developed a love for eggs like these and easter trees since i saw in a box at my boyfriend's place a tiny egg painted like this.. it was instant love! :D before that, i didn't even know about the existence of Easter trees, we in Romania don't make them, except for those with a strong German tradition in their families : )
