Easter Eggs

We have quite a collection of pysanky, or Ukranian Easter eggs, that we have made over the years.  

  I love them! 

I love the colours, the patterns, and the fact that they don't look terrible given that they are actually pretty difficult to make.

     (full disclosure - the light blue egg on the right is a painted wooden egg, not a pysanky)

May your heart and home be blessed this Easter.


UPDATE:  check here for a Ukrainian Easter egg photo-shoot.

  1. You made all of those but the blue one? That's some talent (and a steady hand)! I love them displayed in that long bowl. That's a beautiful centerpiece.

    Glad to have found you after your visit a few days ago, I became a follower.

  7. Love your eggs ... I took a class once to make one. It's very time consuming and by the time I got it home all the colours had run together.

    Happy Easter!

  10. Okay Grace, so I know you read my blog today because you commented . . . then I came over here and it threw me into a state of depression! As you read, I am not the best Easter Egg designer. Your eggs are absolutely beautiful! You could sell those things! Seriously fabulous.

  11. Those are fantastic. I would love to learn how to do that. I'm sitting here jealous as I look at the pictures :)

  12. Those are absolutely beautiful! Happy Easter!

  13. I love Ukranian Easter eggs.

  14. Those are gorgeous!!! have a happy Easter!

  15. Wow, Grace, these are gorgeous! I also like how you have displayed them -- you can appreciate the details of each and every one...

    Happy Easter to you, also :)


  16. your collection is absolutely amazing!! :)

  17. Very pretty eggs... whereas people give them to me you made your own. And that's just amazing!!!
    You're very talented. I quite like the way you've displayed yours in that wooden trough.

    Thanks for your feedback on my rooms and the drapery question. I actually thought of trimming out the bottoms as a solution too, however I think I'd like to try something new.

    And lastly oh yes, since you mentioned it...I love my mani... I find it hard to sit still for the hour it takes but when done it's always worth it. At some point a few years back after continually breaking my nails on the job I opted for the gel solution. It's the ultimate fix.

    Happy Easter

  18. . I remember learning about them in grade school... and tried making them... but it didn't work and spilled something on the book and we had to replace it. I can remember my dad had to leave work early to go to a special store. I have even the past have bought the wax holder to make them but now I have no idea where it is. I want to bring it out again. Love them as your center piece. The earthiness of the eggs is so complimented by the wooden trough. I love the whole look. Dottie
