I could spend hours at the NYPL Digital Gallery, so much, in fact, that I wouldn’t be surprised if Husband blocks the site from our internet capabilities.
But if he did, where would I find such awesome painted eggs?
in my house! we have three. my momma-in-law brought them to us a gifts a few years back. they make them in her town in east germany. i believe they’re a polish tradition?
They are Polish! My family makes them every Easter. They are called Pisanki (PEE-sun-Key)
I LOVE that you called him “HUSBAND” like thats his name. Or like he is an object.
They’re not just polish. It’s a tradition in Slovenia as well.
They’re Ukrainian, too… at least, that’s how they’re described around here. No matter where they are from, though, they are quite beautiful and awesome to watch being made. The patience and skill involved… I wish I had even a fraction of it :)
oh my goodness; that is so fascinating!
These eggs are so beautiful.
My mom makes them every year around this time – just lovely right?!
insanity! i love it!
