Sugar Eggs and Tea...

Easter is near
and spring is in the air...

(click photos to enlarge)

I am so excited for all things spring!!


pastel colors...


Forget-Me-Nots
with a tea cup to match...


a shy little velvet chick...


and sugar eggs...

as a girl I had one of those glorious sugar eggs
with the beautiful scene inside...

I no longer have it,
that was a lesson to be learned about restraint
and not nibbling :-)

my husband would say this is a lesson,  I haven't yet mastered...



 I have always had a fond spot in my heart
for those sugar eggs..

I have been wanting to try making these small ones
for quite awhile...

they are just sugar and food coloring
with a couple drops of water
pressed into candy molds...


the perfect size for dropping in a cup of tea..

they were so fun and easy
I can't wait to try other shapes...


I will be joining these sweet ladies for tea today...

Sandy for Teatime Tuesday

I will also be sharing at

Thanks for joining me for tea:-)

Hi Bella
I've seen decorated sugar cubes but never cute little sugar eggs like these - how about a tutorial?
Love the forget-me-nots in the white sugar bowl.

I love the forget-me-nots, such tiny pretty flowers. Your sugar eggs look gorgeous, almost to pretty to be eaten or dropped in a cup of tea.
Bye,

That's something new to me - sugar eggs. They are adorable. I love forget-me-nots and have a clump in my garden that keeps spreading but they aren't near ready to bloom yet! Your teacup is very pretty. Blessings, Pamela

Bella, Good day! Your sugar eggs are darling!!
What a delightful Spring addition to home inspiration. They would make a sweet gift in an Easter basket (all nestled in a pretty box with a lacey ribbon) for someone special.

Thank you for sharing them, and enjoy your very blessed day.

Hi Bella,
Such pretty pastels in your pictures!! LOVE the little sugar eggs...and they seem easy!
I remember having one of those sugar eggs with the scene inside when I was a very small girl too. I'm sure I ate it all and probably got a cavity for my trouble. LOL!

Sheila said...

I love the forget-me-nots and the tea cup! I'm curious - are the flowers real? If so, did you grow them? Thanks!

Sarah said...

Bella, this is a beautiful post. I love springtime and all that it offers with new flowers blooming and pastel colors. I always loved the sugar eggs with the scene inside, but like you, I nibbled away on them. I recently had a note from someone who said she still has some.
Love the idea of making the little ones to pop into a cup of tea. I'll need to try that idea.
Happy Easter to you! ~ Sarah
