I love my vintage Easter decorations almost as much as I love my vintage Christmas decorations. One of the first collections that I ever had was bunnies. I've passed up the cutesy bunny stuff, but I still have a deep love for vintage bunnies. I also think that there is nothing in the entire world as adorable as a chenille chick. So, Easter is definitely a favorite.
One of my very favorite things is this old revolving tiered dish chock full of all the tiny vintage things I have collected over the years.
I love to look at it for a day or two and then give it a quarter turn then I have all new vintage goodness to enjoy.
There's just so much yummy Easter goodness in there!
Then there's the pink Bunny that the Easter Bunny brought me when I was six years old. He's about four feet tall including his ears. He's a part of our family.
I've been lucky enough to pluck a few vintage bunnies out of toy bins at a couple yard sales. That little pink one in the middle, he stays out year long because he is just so darn adorable.
Vintage Easter baskets and flocked bunnies. The biggest basket on the right is my own Easter basket that I have had since my very first Easter. I started picking up the flocked bunnies about a year after The Breadman's Mother died. (I tell this story every year, so bear with me). As we cleaned out her house, I would find a brown bunny in a drawer and a pink one on the dresser and then a yellow one in the kitchen and so on and so on. I threw them in a box as I found them one by one. When the house was all emptied out, I had a big box full of about thirty of those bunnies. I had them in the TO KEEP pile on a table, but a man that was helping us clean took them to the Salvation Army instead. I wanted those rabbits!!! So, now I have to buy them whenever I see them.
My incredibly sweet Annalee bunny that came in the mail one day from sweet Heidi back when out friendship was just beginning. I added the ducky slippers because, well, they fit!
My collection of paper mache eggs. Most are marked West Germany inside. I love finding these at the thrift. I rarely do anymore. But, I'm always hoping!
Ode to a Chick. Lots of chicky things, vintage postcards and other sweet things.
Like I said, I love all my Easter things. So, the sad thing is, I didn't put any of it out this year. It is killing me not to see all my bright sweet happy things. But, I am barely keeping my head above water right now with all my responsibilities I guess if the one that that doesn't get done is putting out my Easter stuff, then that's not so bad. But, boy do I miss it. :(
Next year I will put out every Easter thing I own, boil a million eggs, buy a dozen chocolate bunnies and make ducky cupcakes until my arms fall off. Come hell or high water.
I hope you have some Easter good news at your house. Happy Easter!
