More Easter Decorations

After church Teen insisted we go to a local antique store and, boy, am I glad we did! I found some vintage cards, a cute little yellow bird, and a wicked awesome RED something that I'll show on Wednesday!

Teen picked out two vintage books - one in French, and one about America - in German! Crazy kid! I saw an old book entitled "The Writings of Celia Thaxter" that I was dying to get, but it was $100! Even with their half-off books sale, I still wasn't going to pay $50 for a book. Interestingly, I can't find that title through Google.

Here are a few more decorations.

This is a Mason's (England) 2-piece egg - Fruit Basket pattern.

Here is my Peter Rabbit display.
Two little Longaberger baskets with more Peter Rabbit eggs, and our Resurrection Eggs.
I got this display stand years ago at a second-hand store. It was rusty, so I spray painted it and use it for all sorts of things. Plastic eggs fit nicely in it. These ones are covered in German egg wrappers. They're meant for real eggs but were too cute for disposal. You put them around an egg, dip in boiling water, and they "shrink wrap" to the egg. These scenes are of a Bunny School. I love the purple egg - the headmaster is pulling the ear of a (naughty?) boy.
Teen, the manga artist, drew this when she was young. Jesus playing with bunnies after He was resurrected! (Who knows, maybe He did!) It's a keeper!

I adore that green and white 2 piece egg! You really found some great treasures. I agree the art of Jesus playing with bunnies is definitely a "keeper". Wisdom from the eyes of children! God loves all of the creatures of the earth. laurie

Try searching for that book on alibris.com. I have gotten some bargains there.

You sure got some nice vintage things! That egg is wonderful.
