Delaware County, Pennsylvania Real Estate Blog: Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to Those Who Celebrate!

These eggs are eggs I decorated years ago.  Pysanky as they are called in the Ukrainian tradtion of which I was raised.  Using bees wax on the surface of an egg is a difficult thing. My patterns took on a life of their own, nothing that would win an award, but I am glad I had the experience of doing these eggs. I also wove the fabric and embroidered the flowers. I enjoy this time of year.  Happy Spring!

Gloria,

When I was introduced to these eggs and watched artisans outside the church making them, they were Russian Easter eggs.  My grandfather's family owned a lot of land in Chernigov which is now the Ukraine...This reminds me of a woman I recently met who was from the USSR, as her passport read.  When she went to renew, the Passport Office clerk berated her for lying as there was no USSR on his list of countries...they had to get the supervisor's supervisor to handle the trauma...

Thank you Gloria Todor those are some beautiful eggs.  They reflect the beauty of God's plan to redeam us.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel A, I've only known of them as Ukrainian Pysanky, since I grew up in a neighborhood outside of Philadelphia were there were many immigrants from Ukraine. But like you said the borders have changed a few times over the many years.  That Passport clerk must have been a youngster to not know of the USSR.

Hi Gloria- Those eggs are stunning!  I'm glad to see that these beautiful traditions and creations are passed down.

Gloria, Happy Easter! Those eggs are amazing, reminded me of when I was a kid and my mother used to paint the eggs, I wish I had some pictures of them... My father used to blow out the inside of the eggs with two pin holes on top and bottom and then she would paint them.... Now I am ashamed to even post my boring colored eggs, Endre

Thank you Gita Bantwal . They were done many years ago.  I will have to try again.

Posted by Gloria Todor, & Doug Durren (484) 431-3686 in SE PA (Century 21 Absolute Realty ) 8 months ago

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD yes I do enjoy seeing the every Easter season, reminds me of times when my parents were still around.

 

Posted by Gloria Todor, & Doug Durren (484) 431-3686 in SE PA (Century 21 Absolute Realty ) 8 months ago

Thanks Kathy Streib .  I have taught a few people over the years how to do the eggs this way.

Posted by Gloria Todor, & Doug Durren (484) 431-3686 in SE PA (Century 21 Absolute Realty ) 8 months ago

Endre Barath, Jr. those are wonderful memories you have.   I used to do the same thing with the holes and blowing out the egg...a hard process.  Then I purchased a gadget that forced the egg out in a much easier way.  Oh please do share your wonderful creations!!   We all shine in our own way, the joy is in the making no matter what.
