    • Happy Easter, gp – and so we share happiness on this Easter weekend. I particularly like the giant eggs children painted and how they danced around the egg once finished. A real community spirit πŸ™‚

  12. Such beautiful and joyful expressions of culturally inspired work.
    Thank you for sharing and Sretan Uskrs!

  13. Thank you for sharing this fabulous tradition of decorating Easter eggs. Amazing artwork by the children of Croatia. I so loved your post!!! Happy Easter to you! 😊🐰🐀🌸🌺

  14. They are truly works of art. Stunning!

  15. Reblogged this on Chronic Conditions & Life Lessons and commented:
    A gift to us sent from Croatia via families and children who decorated the most fabulous ‘Easter Eggs’ I’ve ever seen. Thank you Sarah Vernon. Happy Easter!

  16. Hi,
    The pictures are beautiful. Happy Easter.

  17. Those are amazing eggs. Do the eggs stay up year round?

    • I wish they stay there all year round, SD Gates. They’re put away after Easter Week and every year new ones get painted and created but I do think some of the “old” ones might get shared to other towns the following year

  18. These are stunning, magnificent, gorgeous. This is the first time I’ve heard of this tradition. <3

  19. Happy Easter, Mrs. Ina Vukic !!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  20. Happy Easter to you too! Your town looks lovely, the decorations are great!

  21. These Easter Eggs are fantastic. What a wonderful tradition. Thank you, Ina for your kind Easter wishes and I wish you the same tenfold.

    • Happy Easter Carol, to you, your family and friends. I love this “naive” art and how the joint effort of several artists on one egg produce beautiful stories about Croatia. And to think that in the past few years children are “in on the act” is just so warming – tradition will survive πŸ™‚

  22. Very beautiful and smile-inducing! Happy Easter to you!

  23. Thanks for the follow. πŸ™‚

  24. Very nice. Happy Easter! πŸ™‚

  25. What beautiful pics! Stunning artwork, thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

  26. Rejoice and sing praises to God. For Jesus Christ has risen from the dead, just how he had promised. Here’s wishing a very happy Easter to you and your family. May your hearts be filled perpetually with compassion, hope and love.

  27. Beautiful Pictures, big thanks and Just a nice Easter weekend ….πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—
