Over thirty years ago, my great-grandmother, Dora Klem, made these Ukrainian Eggs. Some of them have survived well. Others have cracks and holes. They all smell like rotten eggs a bit.

When my grandpa died last summer, Stacey found a stash of these eggs in the basement. It has taken this long for me to photograph them, precious as they are to me.

You can see the entire set here:

I just found this website showing how to make these eggs. I think next Easter, I shall have some of my own to display:

  1. We actually did some pysanky in Girl Scouts. Tricky, but fun. I think my mom still has some of the eggs we did.
