Marvelous Mondays: Easter Eggs

11 March 2013

Growing up, my favorite part of Easter was Pysanka eggs. From my birth until a few years ago, my grandmother painstakingly made all of her grandchildren a new design each year, and I loved (and still love) to look at the eggs each year when we take them out of their crates. They’re so delicate that it’s impossible to ship them and challenging to travel with them, so my whole collection is at home in Connecticut right now and unable to be shared with you all. Some day! Until then, I’m inspired by these five marvelous and modern techniques…

I’ve never heard of Pysanka eggs, those are so beautiful! I love family traditions, your grandmother’s sounds really wonderful!

The third ones from the top definitely strike my bright color / minimalist sensibilities :)

This post reminded me of the time we tried to use silk ties to dye eggs! Ah our early Martha years ;)

I know it’s “trending,” but I absolutely love the gold foil eggs! It’s always a good idea to add a little shine or sparkle in my book. :-)
