Project 52 -Week 14
Theme for this week’s challenge “Variety.”
I am extremely honored. This week’s image did not only place in the top ten but was worthy of “Honorable Mention.” I am truly grateful Ellenburg Photography. You may see all the winners here.
There were so many ideas going through my head this week regarding variety…buttons, patches, flowers, packages of seeds I looked over at the local gardening center but I decided on my Ukrainian Easter eggs.
For many years, each Easter I would get together with a group of good friends to make these beautiful Ukrainian Easter eggs while enjoying a lovely brunch and sipping on Mimosa’s. You see…it usually takes anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to create one egg. Yes…one egg! I have made about a dozen of these eggs in my lifetime and cherish them. I have so many wonderful memories of making them.
For those of you who don’t know the history of the Ukrainian Egg I share this bit of information. Ukrainian Easter Eggs have been decorated and dyed for centuries, a tradition that has it roots in pre-Christian Eastern Europe. The designs on the Ukrainian eggs celebrate spring and also stand for protection, symbolize fertility, honor nature and ensure good fortune.
Here is a brief video of how to make these eggs. Have you made your Easter eggs yet? Perhaps give this method a try. Wishing you all a truly Blessed Easter!
