Easter Coming!

aster coming! It is not too soon, but I can’t wait and took out of closet my bunnies, Easter eggs and few Pysanka from last year. (A pysanka (Ukrainian: писанка, plural: pysanky) is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax). Next weekend I will make dozen of new Pysanka for decorations, and also gifts for friends. It is not too hard to paint eggs, but it takes lot of time and I need to have plenty of room and good bright light.

There are two Russian eggs, from Palekhm and paper mache Easter egg from Erzgebirge, Germany:

What is a Pysanka?

Oh, you paint your own eggs? I look forward to see more.....

I spent an Easter in Budapest a few years ago and loved looking at the artful eggs. I have my agg collection at our cabin, where we usually spend our Easter. This year we'll go to Italy though.
