Des Oeufs de Pâques




Paper maché Easter eggs,
in three sizes, with as many as 30 "palets" inside.


I had one as a child,
an old one from my grandmother,
filled with candy and straw grass


miam-miam

I prefer an enduring Easter egg to an edible one. My adult daughter still has the handmade paper maché Easter egg and the cloth Easter billy that her godmother, Irena Sibley, made for her when she was a young child. As a keen conservationist, illustrator and story writer, Irena (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irena_Sibley) started the Easter bilby movement in Australia.

These are probably new, but have a wonderful "antique" look. Happy Easter to you, ma chère.

Elizabeth, what a wonderful story, and I am happy that your daughter has been a good custodian of heritage and history. Thanks for the link.

A wonderful Easter to all. Do not eat too much chocolate.

Bises,
