Pysanky, part two: New market for eggs

Every art teacher hopes that what they teach will catch fire with a kid's creativity. That's what happened when Peg taught Marcy to do Ukrainian eggs. The girl can't stop! She loves doing intricate designs. And we certainly have plenty of eggs for her to use.

We are lucky to live within biking distance of the Ukrainian Gift Shop, on Fairview. Marcy has been biking over our eggs and trading for dye and tips. The women there have been wonderful, and each time she stops in, they teach her something new. Plus, they love the eggs. They told us store-bought eggs are washed with a chemical that doesn't work as well with their dyes. Ours are straight from the chicken and are green, peach, small, large and give them lots of variety.
