MORE VINTAGE EASTER


Last week I posted about my Victorian milk glass Easter eggs, so now I would like to show you a little more of my vintage Easter stuff.

Several years ago, Bob gave me this vintage paper-mache Easter Bunny. It has a hollow body, and was originally a candy container. He is kind of fragile; therefore, perfect for under a cloche.

The small 4" sand pail is not necessarily Easter; but I keep it with my Easter stuff as it is so cute with tiny eggs in it.

Part of our collection of antique postcards, this is one of my favorites. It is propped up in one of my mother's old metal flower frogs.

These two glass chicken on nests belonged to my Grandmother. They originally held tiny Easter egg candy. I remember playing with them as a child; so how they survived without a scratch, I don't know.

Please check out the following blog parties going on for more fun stuff.

Suzanne at Colorado Lady
for Vintage Thingies Thursday

Marty at A Stroll Thru Life
for the Spring cloche party

Cindy at My Romantic Home
for Show & Tell Friday

May you all have a joyous Easter.

Hi Dear Sally! Oh, the olden bunny is so sweet and what a treasure. The covered chicken dishes are so cute. I've been seeing these all my life. Where in the world do you store all of your treasures.
Yes, I'm in grandmother heaven! It's marvelous.
Thanks for popping in to see me, sweet friend.

Your cloches are wonderful. Your paper mache bunny is just beautiful. What a treasure. Your two little chickens on nests are such wonderful heirloom treasures. I remember one of those from when I was a child. Gorgeous and so much fun. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

Very, very pretty...especially those glass hens! I just love them!

I've got a very old flower frog that I still use. It must be close to 30+ years old now. Never even thought to tuck a card into it. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

Have a Blessed Easter,
fondly,
Rett
