Hope you hop on over to the Vintage Easter Blog Hop

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.


Happy Easter

Hi Sherrie,
What a fun post. I not only enjoyed your photos but also the lovely way you wrote it. Your Easter treasures are amazing. Those Easter bonnets are some of the nicest I have seen. I think my very favorite thing is that adorable round watering can. I love to garden and can't wait until our weather cooperates. I truly enjoyed my visit to your blog today and I will sure to be back :)
Have a Blessed Easter
Mimi

Oh Sherrie, I'm in love with all of your Easter decorations, and especially with how you used things like the gorgeous hats in your displays! That lilac one is scrumptious. But my favorite thing is that sweet watering can. A dime?!! I would have paid much, much more for it and still thought I got a deal. I LOVE IT!
Happy Easter!

Hi Sherrie,,
I had to come see your round table in the corner.. You have such pretty Easter dishes and accessories. Even our walls seem to be a bit alike in that area. Mine have a stucco finish.. Thanks so much for your visit to me blog. I hope you'll come back and see me again sometime.

Your pink vase is beautiful and all the little chicks are so cute. My favorite piece however is your beautiful green watering can with the pink rose on it, I love it! Have a lovely Easter, Heather

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you saw the Beatrix Potter figures for $1.99 - go back and buy a few more! I bought mine back in the mid-80's from an overstock store. They were new then but I think they're hard to find now. I love how you displayed the hats ... what could be more Easter than a spring hat!

Monica@The White Bench said...

Your collection is stunning, but I'd looove to wear one of those hats!
Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comment about my vintage postcards.
Happy Easter,
Monica.
