Decorating Eggs in Poland

I know, I know. Easter was months ago… I just totally forgot to post about this fun little Polish tradition: decorating Easter eggs.
Ok, I also know that painting eggs is nothing really new to Americans, as it is something that we also do. However, the eggs that are decorated here in Wroclaw (and all of Poland for that matter) are phenomenal!!Β They are hand beaded or decorated with paper cut designs. So very intricate.Β Here’s a photo of one we received this past holiday (white beads on white paint make it hard to see, but it is lovely).

And here’s a borrowed image showcasing the more traditional paper cut eggs. Yes, that is cut paper – not paint!
If you look for these eggs in shops post Easter, you may be able to find them outside of the holiday season – especially in Krakow (we saw a ton of them and we were just there last weekend). If you’re interested in what stores I might check to see if they have them in Wroclaw, let me know via comment.
