I have a wonderful collection of Easter eggs which I bring out each year. Some of them were given to us by a neighbor, like the wooden painted one above. I wish I knew where it came from. Do you know?
I think this gorgeous papier-mache one is from India.
The children and I made the three eggs above by painting beeswax on some blown eggs, dyeing them, and then melting the wax off with a candle.
My husband brought me this treasure above from Poland. It is a real egg decorated with paper cut-outs. Did you know that if you don't blow out a raw egg, it will eventually dry out?
The egg above is a blown egg, and was beautifully painted by my sister-in-law.
These are some more eggs of mysterious origin given to us by a kind neighbor. I love their folkloric colors.
This is one of my most favorite Easter treasures. My daughter made this bowl when she was a little girl. I love it so much I asked her to paint the bowl into a still life I made about ten years ago. Now it holds jelly beans every year at Easter time.
