Ukrainian Easter Eggs

Today I'm linking to "BLUE MONDAYS".

I have to show this "BLUE" picture first.......my Sister-in-law sent this. It's in Bodrum, Turkey. I just look at the photo and dream and dream, wishing I could be there......with the warm temperatures. I think with this wintery, snowy, cold and damp weather I'm ready for some warm temperatures. But then I do like living in a country with 4 seasons.

Ukrainan Easter Egg Collection

Since Easter is around the corner I thought I would post my Ukrainian Easter Eggs with the gorgeous BLUE background..........this Easter Egg display is dear to me because it was from my Dad who passed away 5 years ago.

When I was a younger kid I liked to play with the Easter egg collection and probably I broke more then one, so when my Dad saw this he bought it for me. I now have it hanging in my den as a reminder of my Dad.

I never did learn how to make these eggs........well I did go for a few classes but never continued. I guess other things were just in the way. Now if I go to a church bazaar I just pick up one or two to add to my collection during the spring. They are a very labour intense job to decorate and take up a lot of time.

Thank you for stopping by.


  1. I did those classes as well, I do make them at home, but mine are not nearly as attractive. Have a good week.

  2. I love your egg collection, Erica, and I like your display case too. My hubby has an egg collection too so I know he would love this, so colorful!....Christine

  3. Irene.....Maybe one day I'll find time to sit down and actually make some. I still have some of the equipment though.

    Christine... Thank you for your comment, everything you have in your home is gorgeous. ;-)

  4. I love your Ukrainian eggs!! I have always been fascinated with Russia. When I was about 14 I found some Russian eggs at Tuesday Morning. I bought them so fast and went back often to check for and buy new eggs that came in. They are packed somewhere now. You're post has motivated me to go find them. Yours are such a lovely reminder of your dad!
    Great post!

  5. Fabulous collection, Ericka!

    Happy Blue Monday!

    Be sure to check out my book giveaway.

  6. Having a display case for these delicate is a great idea. I have two such eggs and am always worried about breaking them.

  7. Hi Iryna,
    Oh, these eggs are so beautiful. They look so lovely displayed against that blue color.
    Also I want to thank you for your sweet comment ;-)
    Have a wonderful week!

  8. Beautiful pysanky! My Rare One does them too and is quite good at it. I've made some simple ones -- you know, the kinds of designs they start kids with! It's a fascinating process.

  9. Beautiful Erica! My best friend from childhood made these eggs with her Mom and Grandmother and I have such fond memories of her and the eggs!

  10. very beautiful art work on the eggs. very impressed :)
