Faberge has organised a wonderful Easter Hunt in London for forty days and forty nights, an amazing fundraising effort for two charities, - Action for Children, a charity that supports the most vulnerable and neglected children in the UK, and The Elephant Charity which works to protect the endangered Asian elephants and their natural habitats.
There are over 200 giant eggs hidden across the city. I say 'hidden' however, in reality they'd be hard to miss! It's all still great fun for all, -tourists, locals, young and old. My own little one, Scribe Junior ran the length of Burlington Arcade, eagerly counting off each egg. What I love about this hunt are the eggs themselves, all quirky and as unique as their creators -artists, designers, jewellers from across the globe, - all wonderful souls who pitched in and decorated the eggs, in their own style.
If you want to bid for a giant egg of your own, do pop here! Actually if you're curious as to the bids, check out the site anyway. Here's a few of the 'eggs-tordinary' pieces of art that I would love to have in my garden this spring, summer, winter...well, forever, really.

I like this one, it reminds me of sea urchins and for
some reason this makes me smile...

Alas, this one suffered a little breakage...
I couldn't find the name or artist for it.
Quite lovely though...

Quite possibly my absolute favourite... love this one!
