Inspired by the brief, albeit welcomed sunshine,
I brought out my few pieces of Springtime decor consisting
of chicks, eggs and bunnies.
I hesitate to call it Easter decor,
for none of these represent the
Truth of Easter.
A few flowers from the garden
Sweet little golden chicks
an assortment of eggs.
These are some first attempts at Pysanki (Ukrainian Easter eggs) that
I made ages ago. These are dark and not very
Springlike, as all the pretty ones have been
These are some 'drilled' goose eggs
also made years ago,when I kept geese.
The eggs are blown out and cleaned
with a vinegar solution to whiten the shells
and dissolve the thick membrane lining the
inner shell. Draw a design on the shell
and with a Dremmel Drill fitted with a small
grinding bit, 'cut' out your design.
These are much prettier if sprayed with
a light coat of varnish.
If I ever get more goose or duck eggs
I will make some more and perhaps do a tutorial.
The chicks and eggs speak of the
'new birth' of Spring and
are a reminder of the New Birth
that we can have because
of the death and Resurrection
of our Saviour Jesus Christ!
"I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore."
"Because I live, ye shall live also."
