I celebrate Passover, not Easter, but my mom was partial the Vernal Equinox, and when growing up, we would dye eggs and I’m pretty sure I got some candy(!)…and strangely enough I think I would get underwear or pajamas too?
In any case, here’s a beautiful way to dye eggs, whether for the Vernal Equinox, or any pagan holiday derived from it, or any resulting non-pagan, too.
out loud when I saw the unique and awesome work of Cave Collective.
Anni Albers was an artist and designer with an intellectual and serious approach. She worked primarily in textile and industrial design.
Her books, On Designing (which i currently have on hand) and On Weaving, offer her whole view on design and provide a greater meaning of craft.
She also made very clever, household-object jewelry. These Anni Albers kits where put out by Urban Outfitters a while ago.
the last piece of jewelry…of washers and fabric tape, inspired my DIY for Chalkboard Magazine a while back.
You can see more of Anni and her partner (artist) Josef Albers’ work at their exhaustive foundation website here. I couldn’t resist sharing some pictures of the young and old lovebirds.
