My Favorite Things


When she was quite young, my niece Kalyna’s favorite movie in the who wide world was “The Sound of Music.”  She just loved Fraulein Maria, and adored it when she sang about her favorite things:

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

These are all very exciting things, particularly the packages. Talking about pysanka supplies is, in contrast, a mildly interesting proposition. 

On the following pages, though, I have included some objects that are used in pysankarstvo and which I particularly like.  Some are absolutely necessary, some a bit more frivolous, and others purely optional, but all are those which I particularly like and use all the time...........a few of my favorite things.
