The egg hunt is on! (part one)

I mentioned yesterday that we spent some time in London egg hunting last Friday. We did, and it was really fun.

My sister mentioned to me during lunch that Faberge have launched The Big Egg Hunt. They have hidden 209 eggs around London, some out in the open and some really well hidden. They have all been designed by leading artists, designers, jewelers ad architects.  If you manage to spot all of them you can win the Diamond Jubilee Egg! All the two and a half foot eggs will be hidden around 12 Egg Zones, encouraging all of London to participate in what is set to break the Guinness World Record for the most people participating in an Egg Hunt! The Big Egg Hunt hopes to raise over £2million for the charities Elephant Family and Action for Children. Egg-tastic!

We decided to have a walk about and do some shopping and hoped that we might spot one or two. It didn't take long, outside Liberty we spotted out first egg. And, in my opinion, the best one. The russian doll egg!

 So beautiful. We kept looking....

My mum suddenly let out a odd sound and grabbed my arm, she had spotted our second egg by Carnaby Street. The post box egg. I have since read that this egg was stolen on Saturday night, which is very sad. Hopefully they will find it and restore it to it's rightful place.

 After that we seemed to spot them everywhere. Yay!

This one was well hidden. We didn't expect them to hide eggs way up high between two buildings. At first we weren't sure if it was an egg or not, but all of them have a plaque nearby with their name and the artist that created them.

 Another one hidden up high.

 This one was hidden inside a shop window!

So far we had spotted 11, so we headed off to Covent Garden, sure that we would see some more there.....
