WOW! I can see why you love these. That egg and nest book is gorgeous. I used to buy the little sixpack box of eggs at Waitrose because I loved the gorgeous colours. {sigh}

I LOVE Rosamond Purcell. Her image of Peter the Great's teeth is one of my most favorite photo's EVER!

I didn't know about the Egg & Nest book either! Must go purchase! :)
