Because I am a glutton for punishment, I like to torture myself by including as many UK-based Instagrammers in my Instagram feed as possible. So each morning I get big dose of homesickness while I feast my eyes on pics of every day British architecture, or gardens or foods.
Over the past few weeks my feed has been full of eggs – more accurately some of the two hundred giant eggs decorated by famous artists, designers and other creatives, such as Zandra Rhodes and Mr Brainwash – which were part of the Faberge Big Egg Hunt which has been taking place all over Central London. Although we had a Nutcracker March in Seattle a few years back, I believe this is the first time a similar event has happened in London. I so wish we’d been there for this – the Minx and I would have been all over it.
So now that your weekend of egg decorating and egg hunting has drawn to a close, here’s a look at how the professionals do it.
Did any London peeps get to go egg hunting? Was it as fun as it looks?
Update: Many thanks to reader K for pointing out that there was a Cow Parade in London a few years back. That one completely passed me by.
