In today’s Mouthful, I write about the series of Washi Egg classes that Barbra Friedman is hosting in April.

"Washi" means paper in Japanese. These eggs are covered with hand-made mulberry paper, using a technique that is not difficult to learn.

It’s helpful to see what these beautiful eggs actually look like and so I’m posting these two photo that Barbra sent to me. You can read more about the classes at her Web site.

Washi Eggs make wonderful gifts for someone special. They are said to represent hope, a perfect thing in spring
