To my delight, a little birdie and bunny stopped by to join me for a a springtime Easter luncheon. The bunny was tired from his travels .... he had been hopping to all the wonderful posts participating in the Vintage Easter Blog Hop with our host Joan at Anything Goes Here. Click Here to join in the fun. My visiting little bird friend wanted to know what goodies I had to share.
I pointed out an Easter Card found in a lawnsale scrapbook find, now matted and displayed in my china cabinet alongside blue speckled eggs under glass.
Suddenly the little birdie starts to sing the lyrics to the song "Easter Parade" which praises the Easter Bonnet ... but she was singing in French. She knew that this lovely purple hat was a Paris creation. Some very lucky Mademoiselle or Madam would have been proud to have worn it on Easter morning for a stroll down the Champs d' Elysee.
These yellow hats are vintage examples of a bit of sophisticated springtime sunshine from past Easters.
This lovely deviled egg plate I am sure graced many a family Easter celebration dinner before finding a home with me.
Of course no lady would be seen on Easter without her bonnet and matching gloves.
A dainty little handkerchief would complete the look.
This little chick poking through its eggshell looks more like a deranged alien hatching from an eyeball but to be fair I was only 12 when I made it. Trust me, without discussing ages here, this is a vintage piece as is the handkerchief.
Easter heralds in a time of rebirth, renewal, and rejuvenation. It is a time to plant .... a time to make things grow. With plant pots and watering can in hand, I am ready to plant. The plant pot on the left was a Salvation Army find for $.49 cents, and the watering can was a dime, yes a dime, at my favorite church sale last April.
My little friends finished their meal of carrots and seed and before hopping and flying off, they wished a Happy and Joyous Easter to me and my family. I wish the same to you all. Please be sure to hop on over to all the other Vintage Easter posts. Tell them, a little birdie sent you.
Before you leave, just a little reminder of MY 100 FOLLOWERS CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY. Please click here for information. A big thank you to all who enter. Giveaway ends April 10th.
The hats, gloves and egg plate are all Goodwill finds.
